The superhero ‘Shazam!’ will be played by two actors. Digital de-ageing has become one of the big Hollywood special effects, with Iron Man’s younger self appearing in ‘Captain America: Civil War’ thanks to the technology. Beginning with the de-ageing of Jeff Bridges in ‘Tron: Legacy’, it’s become Hollywood’s latest impressive visual effect… but while ‘Shazam!’ will feature a young boy with the power to turn into a fully-grown superhero, it looks as though two actors will portray the iconic comic book hero and his younger alter-ego.
Contrary to reports, Warner Bros. and DC Films’ “Justice League” has not undergone massive reshoots, multiple people with knowledge of the film tell TheWrap. “There has been no additional photography to date on ‘Justice League,’ we have planned and will shoot additional pickups early summer,” says one studio insider. “Additional photography has always been planned like most pictures in general but certainly for a tentpole of ‘Justice League’s’ size and scope,” the source continued.
