SHAZAM Casting Call Reveals Supporting Characters And Ties To The New 52 Iteration Of The Hero

A casting call for Shazam has gone out which sheds some light on the supporting characters we can expect in the movie and it's now clear that it will take inspiration from the hero's New 52 adventures.

A recent audition tape for Shazam revealed that we can expect to see Freddy Freeman in the movie but now a new casting call teases the inclusion of the rest of the Marvel Family. These characters were introduced in DC's post-Flashpoint timeline and that could be an indication that the version of Billy Batson we're getting will be based on the version of the iconic hero from The New 52 continuity. 

The descriptions come courtesy of That Hashtag Show and you can find all of those down below.


[DANIEL]11, Korean. Daniel is a smart kid, into video games and reading non-fiction. SUPPORTING
 
[CARLOS]15, Hispanic, overweight, with asthma. Carlos is very shy and sweet. SUPPORTING
 
[SUZY]8-10, African American. A sweet, bubbly girl with glasses and pigtails. SUPPORTING
 
The characters referenced here fit Eugene Choi, Pedro Pena and Darla Dudley, friends of both Billy and Freddy. Unfortunately, there's currently no word on whether or not Warner Bros. is casting Mary, Billy's twin sister and a hero better known as Mary Marvel. Shazam starts shooting next February and is set to be released in 2019. We still don't know who will play the titular hero but that should change soon.
