"No Casting List" Yet for "Shazam!"



"Shazam!" writer John August has debunked reports about filmmakers' plan to pick up Jake Gyllenhaal as Captain Marvel in the project.

In response to the buzz surrounding "Shazam!" filmmakers' intention to have Jake Gyllenhaal played the role of Captain Marvel, the flick's scribe John August has posted a statement on his official blog denying such reports while stressing that what matters for now is just the film script.

"But the thing is, he's not considering," so he claimed of Gyllenhaal. "I can pretty much assure you he's never heard of the project. And we've never discussed him. We've never seriously discussed anyone."

Furthermore, August remarked that casting for the project "has come up exactly zero times" and it "currently has no start date, no release date, no movie whatsoever."

August was previously announced to be the one who would pen for the New Line Cinema's adaptation of the DC Comics series earlier this month and is said to have sat down with DC Comics writer Geoff Johns to make sure the filmmakers' approach to Captain Marvel was consistent with what fans love about him.
