Is that a lightining bolt or an arrow?

On the Big Board
Position Staff In Brief
29/98 Max Braden Zachary Levi was a good choice for this role since he plays the tone just right. I'm always a fan of Cooper Andrews, and Grace Fulton seems like a future star.

Shazam, shazam, shazam! The ancient DC super-hero, the only character that could ever possibly stand up to Superman, is coming to the big screen...eventually. Shazam is famous within the comic book universe because it was one of the first comics to place a child as a central character. Shazam is the super-powerful, orange spandex-clad alter-ego of 12 year-old Billy Batson. Or that's the common misconception. Shazam is the word that Billy utters in order to turn into Captain Marvel; with that explanation it's easier to see why the name Shazam caught on and Captain Marvel didn't.

Little is known about the project at this point; just that Warner Bros. has greenlighted it based on a script and that the project is moving ahead. Shazam remains one of the lesser known super-heroes out there and might find a difficult time finding an audience outside of those who will see the film thinking that Jim Nabors is making a comeback.
