No word yet as to when we might now expect Flashpoint, although it is expected to have survived Warner's DC Films reshuffle and remains a priority for the studio.
Jack Dylan Grazer will play Freddy Freeman, Billy's friend who ultimately controls the powers of the Rock of Eternity and becomes a different Captain Marvel. The film has also reportedly cast Mark Strong (The Kingsman franchise) as its as-yet-unidentified villain and has David F. Samberg (Lights Out) as director. In the comics, Batson is a young orphan who is turned into Earth's mightiest hero (also known as Captain Marvel) after a mysterious wizard named Shazam chooses him to be a champion of good. Billy's long lost sister will be played by Grace Fulton.
That being said, they seem to have a charming take on the material, and with Shazam! opening in April, it's not like Warner Bros' is banking its summer slate on the movie.

Ian Chen and Jovan Armand also co-star. I get to do my version of Big, basically. "It's not glum, and like, 'Oh, I have to save the world again'". Levi teased a possible Wonder Woman cameo, but even if Diana shows up, you still have a new superhero on the scene.
"Wonder Woman, because she's awesome". Like, she was in the Israeli army. "I just think that would be really awesome".
Shazam! arrives in theaters on April 5, 2019.
