The actor will be making the leap from Marvel to DC, as he was just cast as Shazam. Shazam himself is the alter-ego of the aforementioned teenage Billy Batson who has the ability to say the word "Shazam", and transform into an adult superhero with the power of six mythological gods after saying the word.

Chuck star Zachary Levi has been cast as Shazam! in Warner Bros.' upcoming eponymous film, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Shazam will be directed by David F. Sandberg, who is most recently known for this year's horror sequel, Annabelle: Creation. Do you think Zachary Levi is a good fit for the role? It was only in 1970s that the DC banner took over the character. It has earned $303 million worldwide since it's opening in August.

"Honored and greatly humbled to be a part of the #dcuniverse by bringing the original Captain Marvel to life", he wrote on Instagram. Captain Marvel first appeared in Whiz Comics #2 (cover-dated February 1940), published by Fawcett Comics.

Sandberg is directing Shazam! for New Line.from a screenplay by Henry Gayden and Darren Lemke. The movie is set to the most light-hearted DC film released to date.

As for "Shazam", the movie was originally supposed to pit the hero against comic book foe Black Adam, who will be portrayed by Dwayne Johnson, but as production started to draw nearer the studio chose to put him in his own starring film instead.
