CBMB: Walking Dead Star Joins Shazam!

By Muuka Muyumba

The Kingdom’s faithful sergeant-at-arms, Jerry (Cooper Andrews) on The Walking Dead is joining David F. Sandberg’s Shazam! film for New Line. The role is said to be that of a foster parent to Billy Batson (Asher Angel) who is an orphan blessed with the powers of the gods to transform into the superhero Shazam (Zachary Levi).

The latest photo from David Sandberg’s Instagram shows the growing cast.

The film is still casting, but has already lined up Jack Dylan Grazer, Grace Fulton, Ian Chen and Jovan Armand as some of Billy’s friends to co-star. The main villain, Dr. Sivana, will likely be played by Mark Strong, but no confirmation has been announced of this hiring.

Shazam! will be an off-shoot of the current DC Films universe, but is not likely to have a direct connection to any current storyline within that universe. However, rumors suggest that Superman (Henry Cavill) may have a role in the film as Batson is known to worship the Man of Steel in the comics.

Shazam! comes out in theaters on April 5, 2019.
