SHAZAM! Gets An Official Release Date!

 

The Shazam! movie FINALLY has an official release date of April 5, 2019.

The film is set to start production soon in Toronto and the anticipation is high.

Annabelle: Creation’s David F. Sandberg is directing the Shazam! movie, which will star Zachary Levi as SHAZAM! himself.

The story sees young Billy Batson, played by Asher Angel, transformed into the superhero Captain Marvel (Levi) when he yells the magic word, “Shazam!”

It was only a couple of weeks ago that Zachary Levi compared the Shazam! movie to Superman meets Big.

“I can’t tell you much, as you can probably imagine, but what I can say is I am just out of my mind excited!” Levi said. “I get to do my version of Big, basically. It’s like Superman meets Big, and that’s just so fun.”

Not much else is known of the film at this point.

The film is also set to star Jack Dylan Grazer as Freddy Freeman, Ian Chen as Eugene, Jovan Armand as Pedro, with Cooper Andrews,  and Mark Strong is rumored as the villain.

On top of announcing the release date for Shazam!, WB also cancelled a July 27, 2019 release date for an undisclosed DC movie.
