Zachary Levi, the beloved star of Chuck and the voice of Tangled's Flynn Ryder/Eugene has been rumoured to be cast as the lead in DC's upcoming movie of Shazam! Currently, there's no word on who will play Batson, but Levi is a solid choice to play the purposefully corny Shazam. Not only is this a much more significant role in terms of comic book movies, but Levi is now going to have the honor of being known as "Earth's mightiest mortal". It was just revealed that the actor is undergoing workouts that last up to four hours in length, to get into the idealistic physical form of the DC Comics superhero. It also didn't take long for Levi to express his gratitude to the fan community as well as his appreciation for DC as a whole.
The name is derived from the names of the ancient world gods and historical figures - Solomon (S), Hercules (H), Atlas (A), Zeus (Z), Achilles (A) and Mercury (M). The $15 million horror sequel has earned a big $303 million worldwide since opening in August. He debuted in 1940 as Captain Marvel, headlining Fawcett Comics' Whiz Comics.
The title role in DC's "Shazam!" has been filled, with an unlikely contender taking the reigns on the job. That being the case, the young actor playing Billy Batson still needs to be cast.
