Get ready to meet Earth's Mightiest Mortal soon because DC has just confirmed that Zachary Levi will be playing Shazam in the Shazam! movie!
If you know nothing about Shazam! it's essentially the story of Billy Batson, who when he says "Shazam!" can transform into the superhero.
Each letter in the hero's name stands for a different god/historical figure (Solomon, Hercules, Atlas, Zeus, Achilles, and Mercury) whose attributes are given to him when transformed!
Levi will also be among a select group of people who has played roles in both Marvel and DC films as he was also Fandral of the Warriors Three in the Thor sequels!
Shazam! will be directed by David F. Sandberg and is expected to begin production in Toronto this coming February.
