Following a breakout performance in New Line's box office record-breaker It, Jack Dylan Grazer has been added to the cast of the studio's DC Comic film, Shazam!.

It looks like Shazam! has just found its newest cast member. He'll join Zachary Levi (Thor films, Chuck, Tangled), who will play "world's mightiest mortal", and and Asher Angel, who will play Billy Batson in DC adaptation. Per the report, Freddy will be the only other person who knows that Shazam's alter ego is actually his young friend. In the comics, Freddy eventually becomes a hero in his own right and adopts the identity of Captain Marvel Jr.

In addition to It, Grazer's past credits include Me, Myself & I, Tales of Halloween, Comedy Bang!

The young actor joins the cast which now features Zachary Levi as the titular superhero, Asher Angel as Billy Batson, Grace Fulton, and Mark Strong as Doctor Sivana. The film is set to begin production in Vancouver next year. One potential replacement villain could be Doctor Sivana, who made his debut with the hero in Whiz Comics #2 in 1940.

Shazam! is expected to hit theaters in April 2019.
