Shazam Movie Set for April 5, 2019 Release

No word yet as to when we might now expect Flashpoint, although it is expected to have survived Warner's DC Films reshuffle and remains a priority for the studio.

The upcoming film is set to star Asher Angel as Billy Batson and Zachary Levi as Shazam (formerly Captain Marvel). Mark Strong is in talks to play the film's villain, with director David F. Sanberg at the helm from a screenplay by Henry Gayden and Darren Lemke. (That character is getting her own movie on March 8, 2019, starring Brie Larson as the Air Force pilot who gains superpowers thanks to some alien genetics.) After Marvel Comics trademarked the name "Captain Marvel", DC began marketing its own Captain Marvel as "Shazam". Cooper Andrews will play the foster parent at the group home where Billy lives named Victor Vasquez.


"I can't tell you much, as you can probably imagine", Levi said. Hopefully, we'll have more details on the project soon, and I wouldn't be surprised if we get the first official look sometime around Comic-Con. It's like Superman meets Big, and that's just so fun. "It's not glum, and like, 'Oh, I have to save the world again'". Zachary Levi recently expressed his wish to have a Wonder Woman cameo in the movie. "Wonder Woman, because she's awesome", he said. She has such a charm. "She's a mom", he gushed. "I just think that would be really awesome". The April date should be a solid landing spot for Shazam!
