Brandon Molale

  1. Zachary Levi, Shazam! 2018.   A month after Brie Larson’s Captain Marvelopened in 2019, Levi arrived as… Captain Marvel.  (He sold more comics thanm Superman in the 40s). The fact that DC and Marvel had superheroes with the same name was solved in 2011 when DC rebranded him… Shazam! He’s really a kid of 14, given superpowers (and body) by the wizard called, er, Shazam. When Billy Batson yells Shazam, he becomes, er, Shazam. Think Superboy in Superbloke’s body. With Robert Downey/Ryan Reynolds insouciance, Levi won what he calls SupermanMeets Big (his favourite films as a tot), so he’s surely the sole actor in DC, Disney and Marvel movies. “That leaves only Harry Potterand Star Wars…” Other contenders were wrestler John Cena, The Hulk’sLou Ferrigno Jr, Zane Holtz (TV’s From Dusk To Dawn), Jake McDorman, Billy Magnussen, Brandon Molale, Joshua Sasse (Galavant), Derek Theler (nearly Captain Americain 2010), Parker Young (Alex Davies in Arrow). Plus Patrick Warburton aka Seinfeld’s Puddy – but that was in 2001 when he was another superfunny, TheTick… and Shazam! had just started development.
