Created in the late 1930s, Shazam follows the tale of a young boy named Billy Batson who gains the ability to turn into an adult superhero, Earth’s Mightiest Mortal, when he utters the word “Shazam”.

Levi can currently be seen in Thor: Ragnarok as Fandral of the Warriors Three, his last Marvel film. In July, Geoff Johns confirmed that Dwayne Johnson is still on board to star in Black Adam, however, he won’t appear as the supervillain in the first Shazam film.
