SHAZAM! Adds GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY And CAPTAIN MARVEL Actor Djimon Hounsou As The Wizard

Shazam! actually wrapped production a while ago but we're just now finding out which actor has been cast as the 3,000-year-old Wizard that gives Billy Batson his powers, and it's GOTG's Djimon Hounsou...

We finally know who'll be playing The Wizard in Warner Bros. and New Line's upcoming Shazam! Movie!

As previously reported, This Is Us actor Ron Cephas Jones was in line for the role and was believed to have landed it, but according to EW, Djimon Hounsou was quietly cast to play the sorcerer who gives young Billy Batson his powers when Cephas was forced to step away due to a scheduling conflict.

Academy Award-winner Hounsou also plays a supporting role on The MCU as Kree mercenary Korath the Pursuer, who debuted in Guardians of the Galaxy and will return for Captain Marvel.

Shazam! is set to hit theaters on April 5, 2019 and also stars Angel Asher as Billy Batson and Zachary Levi as his titular super-powered alter-ego.
