Shazam! Casts IT Actor as DC Comics' Captain Marvel Jr

According to Deadline, Jack Dylan Grazer from It has been cast as Freddy, Billy Batson's best friend who knows his thunderous secret.

Asher Angel will essay the role of Billy Baston, a young boy who turns into adult superhero the moment he utters the word Shazam. It would be interesting to see how the standalone origin film will set out an arc for Dylan's future Captain Marvel, Jr.

Whether the comics were called Shazam or Captain Marvel, the character always had a friend in Freddy Freeman. The name is an acronym of the ancient gods and historical figures Solomon, Hercules, Atlas, Zeus, Achilles, and Mercury, who Batson derives his heroic attributes from when in adult form.

Sandberg is on board to direct from a script by Henry Gayden and Darren Lemke. Zachary Levi will play the titular role of Shazam.

He took to Instagram following the casting announcement to post: "Honored and greatly humbled to be a part of the #dcuniverse by bringing the original Captain Marvel to life".
