DC's 'Shazam!' Adds 'IT' Star Jack Dylan Grazer

“It” Breakout Star Jack Dylan Grazer to Play Billy Batson's Best Friend in “Shazam!”

'It' Star Jack Dylan Grazer Joins DC Superhero Film 'Shazam!'

Jack Dylan Grazer has joined New Line Cinema's Shazam! as Freddy Freeman (a.k.a. Captain Marvel Jr.), according to The Hollywood Reporter. Without Black Adam, the most well known villain for the hero, there aren't many villains left for Shazam to tussle with.

The young actor joins the cast which now features Zachary Levi as the titular superhero, Asher Angel as Billy Batson, Grace Fulton, and Mark Strong as Doctor Sivana.

Kentucky Clerk Kim Davis Meets Opponent
Ermold also said that his campaign will not only focus on the LGBT rights but will also give prominence to other issues. Davis, who has been married to opposite sex partners four times, has already said she will run for re-election.


There's every chance that Freddy will simply be a childhood pal to Billy and possess no powers, alter egos, or hidden abilities of his own, especially since the audience will likely need an everyman anchor in this story rife with wizards and transformations and incredible superpowers. Levi is playing the Captain Marvel version of Billy, and Angel is playing the non-Captain Marvel Billy. However, it's not likely that the movie would introduce this character right away with the debut title. He'll join Zachary Levi (Thor films, Chuck, Tangled), who will play "world's mightiest mortal", and and Asher Angel, who will play Billy Batson in DC adaptation. It could even lead to a future team-up for Freddy and Billy if all goes well...

Creation filmmaker David F. Sandberg is directing from a script by Darren Lemke (Jack the Giant Slayer) and Henry Gayden (Earth to Echo). Filming is expected to start next year.
