DC's Shazam! movie has found its 3,000-year-old Wizard.

DC has tapped Hounsou, who made a splash in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Korath the Pursuer in Guardians of the Galaxy, for an important role its forthcoming film Shazam!

The 2019 spinoff stars boy wonder Billy Batson (Disney Channel star Angel Asher), who one day encounters a unusual and mysterious wizard (Djimon Hounsou) while riding the subway.

EW unveiled the photo on Tuesday and it features Levi as the titular hero, alongside young actor Jack Dylan Grazer, who plays Freddy Freeman.

Taiwan flag emoji crashed iPhones 'to appease China'
After losing mainland China to communist forces in 1949, the Republic of China relocated to Taiwan. Even receiving the Taiwanese flag emoji on a chat conversation caused messaging apps to crash.

Production on the DC Comics adaptation of Shazam may be finished, but that's not stopping us from learning about a new cast member. The role was previously reported to belong to Ron Cephas Jones, but his casting never came together due to a scheduling conflict. There was already bound to be confusion between the Captain Marvel of Shazam! and the Captain Marvel of Captain Marvel, but no one is likely to feel that confusion as thoroughly as Hounsou, who'll now be starring in two movies containing a Captain Marvel across two different comic book franchises from two different studios.

Hounsou rose to fame in major roles in films like Amistad and Gladiator, and was previously in another DC title - playing Papa Midnite in 2005's Constantine. Director David F. Sandberg (Lights Out) took elements from throughout Shazam's history for the costume, including the New 52's hood and lightning bolt, the Golden Age's shortened cape, and the gauntlets from some of the character's animated movie appearances.

This could suggest that Hounsou won't be in Shazam! all that much, only popping up near the beginning when Billy receives his powers and at random moments throughout to offer guidance.

Before audiences get a taste of Levi as Shazam, they'll get another deep sea adventure with Jason Momoa when the James Wan-directed Aquaman dives into theaters on December 21st.
