December 7, 2017 | Posted by Jeremy Thomas

IT star Jack Dylan Grazer has joined the cast of Shazam!. Deadline reports that Grazer, who played Eddie Kaspbrak in the horror film, will play Freddy in the film. Freddy is Billy Batson’s best friend and the only person who knows the truth about Shazam. In the comics, Freddy is Freddy Freeman who, in the New 52 continuity, is part of the foster family alongside Billy.

Grazer joins Zachary Levi and Asher Angel in the DCEU movie. Levi is playing the Captain Marvel version of Billy, and Angel is playing the non-Captain Marvel Billy. David F. Sandberg is directing the film from a script by Henry Gayden and Darren Lemke. The film is set to begin production in Vancouver next year.
