Movie to Star CHUCK's Zachary Levi

David F. Sandberg will direct the film for New Line

Commentary: I have to admit, if you asked me to list every possible actor I thought could play Shazam, I doubt Zachary Levi would show up on that list.

Zachary Levi, best known for NBC's Chuck and a small role in Marvel's Thor films, has just been cast as Shazam.

The movie will be a big career leap for Zachary Levi who is yet to make his mark as a solo hero. In 1972, DC licensed the Marvel Family characters from Fawcett and returned them to publication. Other actors who were earlier rumored to be considered for a role in Shazam includes John Cena, Billy Magnussen, Zane Holtz, Derek Theler, and Jake McDorman. It has earned $303 million worldwide since it's opening in August.
