"Chuck" star Zachary Levi has said the magic word and will star as "Shazam" in the DC Extended Universe movie.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, David F. Sandberg is directing "Shazam" for New Line, with the story following young Billy Batson, who can who can transform into an adult superhero by saying the magic word "Shazam!" Billy Batson has also gone by the name Captain Marvel, which probably won't happen in this movie since the Marvel Cinematic Universe has its own Captain Marvel in Brie Larson, and she has her own film coming out in 2019, too.

So just Shazam will be fine.

Fans are feeling just fine about the casting news:
