Zachary Levi To Star in DC’s Shazam!

Zachary Levi is best known for his leading role on the action comedy television series, Chuck.  He has stretched his legs with other KOOL geeky roles over the years.  Now Levi will be the Earth’s Greatest Mortal, Captain Marvel aka SHAZAM!

Check out Zachary Levi’s Instagram post below.

The character of Captain Marvel goes all the back to 1940 with Whiz Comics #2 from Fawcett.  During the 40s, he was more popular than Superman.  He is often compared to Superman and DC Comics did win a lawsuit about the character.

Young Billy Batson had a surprise encounter with the Wizard, Shazam. The Wizard granted Billy a special ability.  When he would say the magic word (the Wizard’s name) Shazam!, he transforms into an adult superhero named Captain Marvel (later known as Shazam!).  Captain Marvel has the wisdom of Solomon, the strength of Hercules, the Stamina of Atlas, the power of Zeus, the Courage of Achilles, the Speed of Mercury.  He has super strength, near invulnerability, and flight.

Levi’s Captain Marvel will face off against the bad version of Captain Marvel- Black Adam.  Black Adam has the same powers as Captain Marvel but not the morality of Billy Batson.  Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson will be Black Adam.

Stay Geeky My Friends!
