Alan Ritchson Shazam in the DC Extended Universe?

Alan Ritchson who has played the role of Aquaman on the television series Smallville and has been fan cast  in the role of Shazam by fans, as well on our Top 10 Actors Who Could Play Shazam, list, apparently answered a fan’s question about whether he’s playing Shazam, in which the actor replied with a simple “Yup”.

It’s hard to tell if he’s playing with the fan or if he’s being serious on the casting of the role. It’s also worth noting he has tweeted Stephen Amell who plays Green Arrow on Arrow, on Twitter and Instagram, showing a connection between them, so it’s possible if he is Shazam, maybe it’s the television version of the character. Until confirmed by Warner Bros., take with a grain of salt.

My name is Eric and I am loving this current comic book boom, I was around for the first one with Superman: The Movie, Supergirl(being the first female and crossover film) and Batman and have been enjoying the resurgence since Blade. Can't express how much I cannot wait for WB & DC to take back the film universe but until than I love the TV shows we have gotten. I only started reading comics about 10 years ago but am connected more to DC over Marvel or any other major company. If you wanna chat feel free to contact me
