Warner Bros. has finally cast the lead actor for Shazam. The role will be played by Thor actor Zachary Levi. Early rumors had John Cena in the lead to land the role. Levi is more well known for his comedic roles in the spy sitcom Chuck and Tangled.

Levi will play the grown-man persona of little Billy Batson, a boy who can transform into a superhero by saying the word “Shazam!”, which grants him “the genius of Solomon, the strength of Hercules, the unbreakable will of Atlas, the lightning blasts of Zeus, the power of Achilles and the speed of Mercury.”

Levi posted a message on Instagram about his upcoming role as Shazam. “Honored and greatly humbled to be a part of the #dcuniverse by bringing the original Captain Marvel to life. I am beside myself with gratitude, not only for this opportunity but also the incredible outpouring of love and support from so many of you out there in the world. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’ll be in the gym for the rest of forever. 🙏 (amazingly cool art courtesy of @bosslogic) #Shazam”.

David F. Sandberg is directing Shazam! for New Line Cinema. Sandberg is directing Shazam! from a screenplay by Henry Gayden and Darren Lemke.
