IT Star Jack Dylan Grazer Joins Shazam!

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

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

It might be worth watching Andy Muschietti's smash-hit horror movie again if only for the performances of the film's excellent young cast members.

DCEU fans will get to see a familiar face in Shazam! as IT star Jack Dylan joins the cast.

DC's Shazam is continuing to gain momentum on the road to filming, as a major casting has been announced. Grazer will portray Freddy, Billy Batson's best friend.

Aztec High School shooting over, authorities say
Sheriff's officials say they're responding to a shooting at Aztec High School in Aztec, New Mexico, reports CBS affiliate KRQE . Kyle Lincoln from the San Juan County Sheriff Department are clearing the building and actively searching the school.

In the DC comic books, a character named Freddy Freeman was introduced in Whiz Comics #25 (December 1941) as a crippled newsboy who Shazam (called Captain Marvel in the comics) rescues from the evil Captain Nazi. No further details were available.

'Shazam!' will focus on Billy, a boy who can transform into an adult superhero by uttering the magic word "Shazam". Levi is playing the Captain Marvel version of Billy, and Angel is playing the non-Captain Marvel Billy. While fishing with his grandfather Jacob, the Freemans go from innocent bystanders to victims of this battle with Jacob dying in the aftermath. It could even lead to a future team-up for Freddy and Billy if all goes well... David F. Sandberg is directing the film from a script by Henry Gayden and Darren Lemke.
