Zane Holtz

  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 Superman Meets 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 Zane Holtz (TV’s From Dusk To Dawn), wrestler John Cena, The Hulk’s son Lou Ferrigno Jr, Jake McDorman, Billy Magnussen, Brandon Molale, Joshua Sasse (Galavant), Derek Theler (nearly Captain America in 2010), Parker Young (Alex Davies in Arrow).  Plus Seinfeld’s Puddy, Patrick Warburton – but that was in 2001 when he was another superfunny, The Tick… and Shazam! had just started development.
