Actor Djimon Hounsou is the latest actor to join the cast of DC`s "Shazam!", which stars Zachary Levi in the title role. The 54-year-old actor joins Asher Angel, Jack Dylan Grazer, Grace Fulton, Adam Brody, and Michelle Borth and Ross Butler in the project. According to a website, Hounsou will play the role of a sorcerer who gives young Billy Batson (Angel) his powers. The part was originally attached to "This is Us" actor Ron Cephas Jones, but he evidently left the project due a scheduling conflict. Hounsou is no stranger to superhero films, having earlier played Korath in the Marvel`s "Guardians of the Galaxy". He will also reprise the role in the upcoming "Captain Marvel". Directed by David F Sandberg, "Shazam!" will release on April 5 next year.
