Zachary Levi, who plays Shazam, recently said that the approach to the adaptation was like "Big meets Superman" which sounds absolutely delightful.

The film will be scripted by Henry Gayden and Darren Lemke. When Billy speaks the wizard's name, he's struck by a magical thunderbolt and transformed into an adult superhero with the abilities of six legendary immortals. Levi said. "I get to do my version of Big, basically". "It's not glum, and like, 'Oh, I have to save the world again'". Interestingly enough that date is not Easter weekend, a time frame that WB took advantage of when they launched Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice to $166M.
