TV's Chuck To Play Shazam

Probably doesn't bode well for Zachary Levi's Fandral in Thor: Ragnarok.

The search for Shazam! is finally at an end, with Zachary Levi the lucky Golden Ticket winner. Levi, best known as TV's Chuck, beat out a long list of actors including John Cena, Derek Theler, Zane Holtz, Billy Magnussen, and Jake McDorman.

Levi is no stranger to superhero movies, appearing as Fandral in Thor: The Dark World and Thor: Ragnarok, which is presumably his final Marvel apperance. Dwayne Johnson will portray Shazam!'s big bad Black Adam in a solo movie before facing off with each other.

Shazam!, directed by David F. Sandberg, is set to release April 2019.
