    He looks more like Captain Marvel than Cavill does Superman, imo. And a billion times more than their Barry Allen and Arthur Curry do their respective characters. So it's all relative.

    Personally, I still think The Rock should play every role: Black Adam, Captain Marvel, Shazam, Billy Batson, the voices of Talky Tawny and Mr. Mind. Just make the whole think like Nutty Professor style. Would guarantee the tone stayed light and not sink into the typical DCEU mire.

    I think you'd have to keep yourself in good humor when taking up a project like this. His cheekiness aside... his comment is pretty spot on to what'll likely happen when the costume is revealed depending on which costume they choose to take inspiration from. Now, of course, those might be a vocal minority in the grand scheme, but it'll still be there.

    Actually Zachary Levi played Fandrall in both Thor: The Dark World and Thor: Ragnarok. Interesting that he's now goimg to be Shazam in this film. Not my first choice, but I can see it working.

    Well he can act like a kid, he did it half the time in Chuck. Now lets see if he can bulk up for the part and how hell look in costume.

    I only saw Levi in Thor 2.

    But if he's going to be comedic in this, I would perhaps call that a good thing, because Capt Marvel is a child in a hero's body and does some funny stuff occasionally.
