The G.A. won't know the other name of Shazam back in the day was Captain Marvel, so there won't be any confusion as I doubt they care about his past in the comics (just like they didn't care about the comic history for Ant-Man or Doctor Strange).

Yeah, he isn't called Captain Marvel anymore, just Shazam.

DC's Shazam! casts Guardians actor Djimon Hounsou as the Wizard

DCís Shazam! movie has found its 3,000-year-old Wizard.

Djimon Hounsou was quietly cast to play the sorcerer who gives young Billy Batson his powers in DCís Shazam! film coming next year, EW has exclusively learned.

Previously, This Is Us actor Ron Cephas Jones was widely reported as likely getting the Shazam! role, but that didnít end up happening due to a scheduling conflict.

Filming on Shazam! has actually wrapped, but this bit of casting remained under the radar until now. (Comic fans will bemusedly note that Hounsouís upcoming Captain Marvel was also the original name of the Shazam! comic book before DC changed the name).

Whenever I talk about Hounsou, I usually lead with "Give us us free".

I take it he’s not going to be crushed by a giant stone block, like in the comics.

Kinda ironic that a film for one of the characters Iím least interested is looking like it has the most potential to be fun out of any of the DC films to date.

Obvious Superman clone

No but seriously, this looks great. Just what I want from a Shazam movie.

True, but you can add Zach Levi since he played Fandral.

This being aimed at children more than most superhero movies these days, I hope the toys turn out decent. That could actually make or break the chance of a sequel.
