DCEU fans will get to see a familiar face in Shazam! as IT star Jack Dylan joins the cast.

According to Deadline, Grazer will play a character named Freddy, the best friend of teenager Billy Batson (Asher Angel) and the only person who knows that Batson can transform into the adult superhero Shazam (Zachary Levi) simply by saying his name. Created by C.C. Beck and writer Bill Parker, the character was first published by Fawcett Comics.

CVS, Aetna merger could impact local pharmacies
Large corporate customers of Aetna are taking a wait-and-see attitude regarding the impact on costs, benefits experts have said. The drugstore chain CVS has reached a blockbuster agreement to acquire Aetna , one of the nation's largest health insurers.

There's every chance that Freddy will simply be a childhood pal to Billy and possess no powers, alter egos, or hidden abilities of his own, especially since the audience will likely need an everyman anchor in this story rife with wizards and transformations and incredible superpowers.

Creation filmmaker David F. Sandberg is directing from a script by Darren Lemke (Jack the Giant Slayer) and Henry Gayden (Earth to Echo). He'll be heading to the DC Comics' movie Shazam! in a supporting role.
