    To be fair, he only got to write them for one arc...

    Well, as a counterpoint, I just meant to say he probably would have better developed them and their personalities had he gotten more time to work with them.

    For some reason, I'm thinking this was assumed or loosely confirmed based on planned dates.

    Yeah, it was. I figured something re-confirmed straight from the director was worth noting.

    I never would've thought of him in the role, but I think he actually has the natural charm and the ability to convey that childlike wonder and mannerisms well :).

    Now all he needs to do is bulk-up for the role ;).

    Plus they also now have to cast a kid that believably looks like a younger version of him...

    Though I guess this means we probably won't be seeing Fandral again anytime soon :sweat:.

    Yeah, I don't know how I feel about this. We'll have to see. As mentioned, it's the child that will determine my reaction.

    Yeah, true. In terms of bulking up, they're probably have Cavill as a starting point.

    He'll probably show up in the Avengers movies if he isn't killed off in Ragnarok. So by the time Avengers 4 finishes... that should be enough time for when Shazam starts?

    Unexpected...but I can see it. I've seen him in some interviews, and he's obviously a big comic fan. He gets across that youthful enthusiasm at times.

    I think he's great for a role like this in most ways but I've always seen him as such a slim guy that I can't imagine him with much muscle mass. It will be very interesting to see how this turns out. He never would have crossed my mind but I like Zachary a lot and I think he can work if he's able to look the part.

    Yeah, they could be going for a "Tom Holland".

    I think they'd probably cast young enough so that they have someone who will be young or looks pretty young, both so there's a big distinction between his adult form and because they'll be locking that kid in for several movies.

    Right, that's very possible.
