A couple of weeks ago, one of the fantastic news came about Shazam’s main casting member who will be played by Zachary Levi. Levi will be seen as an adult version of Shazam whereas teenager Billy Batson will be portrayed by Asher Angel. Billy Batson is the boy who has the power to transform into the adult superhero who possessed incredible strength same as Superman known as Shazam.
Here is the concept art of both version of Billy Batson made by one of the greatest artist of all time, Bosslogic:
After selecting one of the important casts, Shazam’s director David F. Sandberg now reuniting with his Annabelle: Creation cinematographer Maxime Alexandre and production designer Jennifer Spence for the film.
So that’s the top selection for the movie. But besides all of this, still, movie need another important thing which could be necessary to set actual live-action flicks. As per the report from Omega Underground, the director has hired a stunt coordinator to work on the action sequences for the Shazam!
The stunt coordinator is no other than the talented Kyle Gardiner who is known for his best work on Marvel’s Thor: Ragnarok. If you are a Marvel fan also then you will Know what I mean. And his recent activity also includes the project likes of Alien: Covenant, Hacksaw Ridge and upcoming DCEU’s Aquaman which was all shot in Australia.
Therefore, thanks to Gardiner, we don’t have to worry about Shazam’s action sequences which will be overseen by him. As I mentioned earlier, his other incredible movies also involve Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, Kong: Skull Island, and San Andreas. By seeing Kyle Gardiner’s entering DC family guarantee that the movie will not fail us like Justice League as well as Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice.
Shazam! is being produced by New Line Cinema in collaboration with Warner Bros (as expected) and is expected to start the production on February 5 in Toronto and sets to releases for April 5, 2019.
