Today, we asked Shazam! director David F. Sandberg if he would be interested in directing a Plastic Man movie. Surprisingly, he replied saying he would if Ben Schwartz would star in the film.
If you’re not familiar with Ben’s work, he will voice Sonic The Hedgehog in the upcoming movie, and has been involved with many other franchises such as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, The Lego Movie, Parks & Recreation, and Star Wars.

With Sandberg on board and Schwartz wanting the role, it all comes down to Warner Brothers’ plans and decisions. Anything could happen.
Directed by David F. Sandberg, Shazam! stars Zachary Levi, Asher Angel as Billy Batson, Grace Fulton as Mary Marvel, Jack Dylan Grazer as Freddy Freedman, Cooper Andrews and Marta Milans as Victor and Rosa Vasquez, Faithe Herman as Darla, Ian Chen as Eugene, Jovan Armand as Pedro, and Mark Strong as Doctor Sivana. Check out the synopsis below:
“We all have a superhero inside us, it just takes a bit of magic to bring it out. In Billy Batson’s (Angel) case, by shouting out one word—SHAZAM!—this streetwise 14-year-old foster kid can turn into the adult Super Hero Shazam (Levi), courtesy of an ancient wizard. Still a kid at heart—inside a ripped, godlike body—Shazam revels in this adult version of himself by doing what any teen would do with superpowers: have fun with them! Can he fly? Does he have X-ray vision? Can he shoot lightning out of his hands? Can he skip his social studies test? Shazam sets out to test the limits of his abilities with the joyful recklessness of a child. But he’ll need to master these powers quickly in order to fight the deadly forces of evil controlled by Dr. Thaddeus Sivana (Strong).“
Shazam! hits theaters on April 5th.
