It star Jack Dylan Grazer joins cast of Shazam! as Freddy (Freeman?)

It star Jack Dylan Grazer is graduating to the DC universe.

Shazam! just found Billy Batson a friend. 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.

The film is about Batson, who can transform into an adult superhero by uttering the magic word "Shazam!". In the comics, Freddy is Freddy Freeman who, in the New 52 continuity, is part of the foster family alongside Billy.

In the comics, Freddy is severely injured due to a fight between Shazam and Captain Nazi, causing Billy to transfer some of his powers to the young boy. He has also operated under the name Captain Marvel Jr.
