Earlier this week we got a teaser trailer for the DCEU’s youngest superhero in SHAZAM! and at the time of this article another full trailer is expected to drop today. Also today Funko pop released figures for the film and also show members of the Shazam Family.Now it had been known that they would be featured in the upcoming movie, but no one was certain that they’d actually be suiting-up to join Billy Batson (Asher Angel/Zachary Levi) in his fight against Dr. Sivana until now.
Funko has released images of three of the POP! tie-in figures that are set to hit shelves very soon, and they give us some idea of how both Darla Dudley (Faithe C. Herman) and Eugene Choi (Ian Chen) will look when they don their superhero costumes in the film.
When the new trailer arrives there is a possibility we may seem them in action along with the Seven Deadly Sins!
We are getting more casting information for the upcoming DC superhero film Shazam!, which is set to star Zachary Levi as the titular character and Asher Angel as his alter ego. This time it is , Faithe Herman, from the hit NBC show This Is Us. Now currently is not confirmed on who Herman will play in the movie, but it is believed that she will play Darla Dudley, the young African American girl who is of young Billy Batson (Asher Angel) in the group home that they live in.
Now if this is the case this means that we are more than likely getting the “New 52” version of Shazam, where Darla is one of the six kids who are given powers to help Billy/Shazam take on his nemesis, Black Adam. Now it needs to be noted that Dwayne Johnson is set to star in a Black Adam standalone film as well as be the main antagonist for Suicide Squad 2. But it is not known if he will be a bad guy for Shazam just yet. However Mark Strong has been cast as Dr. Sivana for sure . Check that story out HERE
Herman joins five other young actors: Asher Angel as Billy Batson; Jack Grazer as Freddy Freeman; Ian Chen as Eugene Choi; Jovan Armand as Pedro Peña; and Grace Fulton who is possibly playing Mary Marvel. This ensemble presumably fits the six slots of the Shazam Family. So it will be very exciting as we get further into the production to see what direction this film goes in.
