Shazam! is being directed by Lights Out and Annabelle: Creation director David F. Sandberg and Zachary Levi is set to play the title character. I like what Sandberg has done with his previous films and I'm curious to see how he ends up handling the big screen adaptation of this classic DC comics character.
When talking about the film with EW, New Line president Toby Emmerich said the movie has "a tone unto itself" and added:
"It’s a DC comic, but it’s not a Justice League character, and it’s not a Marvel comic. The tone and the feeling of the movie will be different from the other range of comic book movies.
