DC's 'Shazam!' Is Coming to Theaters in Spring 2019

DC's 'Shazam!' Is Coming to Theaters in Spring 2019

Pictures officially confirmed this week that the release date for the Shazam movie is now set for April 5, 2019 release. Shazam will be the next film produced in the DC Cinematic Universe before Flashpoint, Batgirl and Suicide Squad 2.

Zachary Levi will play the role of the titular character. The film has also reportedly cast Mark Strong (The Kingsman franchise) as its as-yet-unidentified villain and has David F. Samberg (Lights Out) as director.

That being said, they seem to have a charming take on the material, and with Shazam! opening in April, it's not like Warner Bros' is banking its summer slate on the movie. Asher Angel will play Billy Batson while Dylan Grazer (It) will play Billy's best friend.

Ian Chen and Jovan Armand also co-star.

Levi cautiously teased the film recently with ET, saying that "I can't tell you much", the actor says, "as you can probably imagine, but what I can say is I am just out of my mind excited!"

Levy was asked about a cameo, particularly Gal Gadot as Diana Prince or Wonder Woman, and that would be his pick too. Hopefully, we'll have more details on the project soon, and I wouldn't be surprised if we get the first official look sometime around Comic-Con. "Wonder Woman, because she's awesome", he said. And she seems like a really cool broad. "She's a mom", he gushed. The April date should be a solid landing spot for Shazam!
