Does King Ezekiel know?

According to Deadline, Cooper Andrews has joined the upcoming DC Comics movie "Shazam!" Andrews is currently best known as popular Kingdom resident Jerry on "The Walking Dead."

In "Shazam," Zachary Levi plays the adult superhero version of young Billy Batson (Asher Angel). Billy can transform into Shazam by saying the title word. Andrews, Deadline reports, will play the foster parent at the group home where Billy Baston lives. So far, the cast includes Levi, Angel, Andrews, "IT" star Jack Dylan Grazer, Grace Fulton, Ian Chen, and Jovan Armand.

David Sandberg is directing "Shazam!" which is expected to start filming in February in Toronto. So you shouldn't worry that this means anything bad for Jerry on "The Walking Dead." Filming is already over for TWD Season 8, and Season 9 (which is inevitable) will probably keep the usual filming schedule of May to November in Georgia. So there's plenty of time for Andrews to film a costarring role in "Shazam!" between February and May, if it comes to that.

"The Walking Dead" Season 8 returns Sunday, Feb. 25 on AMC. "Shazam!" is reportedly aiming for a spring 2019 release.
