Levi (Chuck, Heroes Reborn) was famously seen in Thor: The Dark World as Fandral, and returns as one of the Warriors Three in next month's Thor: Ragnarok.
The rights to Captain Marvel passed through several hands in the decades that followed and eventually came into conflict with Marvel Comics, who had their own character named Captain Marvel. Whenever Billy speaks the wizard's name, he is instantly struck by a magic lightning bolt that transforms him into an adult superhero empowered with the abilities of six mythical figures.
This is a big move for New Line and Levi, who is known for comedic roles, and starred in NBC's hit spy-comedy series Chuck from 2007-2012.
The Shazam movie has an April 2019 release directed by David F. Sandberg.
This latest image is the second artistic look at Levi as Shazam that we've seen since the casting announcement was made. It was only in 1970s that the DC banner took over the character.
Previously known as Captain Marvel, Shazam first appeared in Whiz Comics #2 (February 1940), published by Fawcett Comics. It has not been revealed who will play Billy yet. The hero has the powers of Solomon, Hercules, Atlas, Zeus, Achilles, and Mercury. Recent Shazam comics have had the character calling himselfShazam (which can be unsafe when saying your name also turns you back into a powerless adolescent).
And though he won't be in the film, Shazam's greatest adversary is Black Adam, and that part has already been cast.
Sandberg, whose first feature, Lights Out, launched in 2016, is directing for New Line. DC Comics acquired the rights to Captain Marvel in 1972. He'll be played by Dwayne Johnson.
