IT actor joins Shazam!

Deadline reports that Jack Dylan Grazer has joined the cast of Shazam!, following his turn as young Eddie Kaspbrak in Warner Bros' smash hit, IT. 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. Grazer will play Batson's best friend and confidant Freddy Freeman, the only person who knows Billy's superhero secret. Created by C.C. Beck and writer Bill Parker, the character was first published by Fawcett Comics. Mark Strong is in talks to play the central villain, Doctor Sivana.

DC's Shazam is continuing to gain momentum on the road to filming, as a major casting has been announced.

Creation filmmaker David F. Sandberg is directing from a script by Darren Lemke (Jack the Giant Slayer) and Henry Gayden (Earth to Echo).


He took to Instagram following the casting announcement to post: "Honored and greatly humbled to be a part of the #dcuniverse by bringing the original Captain Marvel to life". Now if you'll excuse me, I'll be in the gym for the rest of forever. Fret not, the 14-year old actor won't just be playing the role of a best friend, but in DC Universe, he is later known as Captain Marvel, Jr.

The most recent version of the character debuted during Geoff Johns' stint with Shazam.
