Casting for the upcoming DCEU film, ‘Shazam!’, is currently underway and has been the interest of many. Reportedly, John Cena and Joshua Sasse were up for the role and we can now add Parker Young to that list. Omega Underground has uncovered Young’s audition tape for the titular role of Shazam.
You can check out the clip below:
Young had a recurring role on ‘Arrow’ as Alex Davis in Season 4 of the CW show. He has yet to make the major jump from TV to film but this could be the opportunity he has been looking for. He definitely has the look for the character and if you watch his audition I bet you’ll think he can take up the mantle of Captain Marvel.
