the conceit of shazam is ‘little kid in a superhero’s body’. i thought they were  pushing it in the first one where shazam!billy acted like a five year old on a sugar high at disneyland while teen!billy was far more muted and angsty, but i think the dissonance will feel worse when teen!billy looks far older. it just won’t make sense for him to act so childish anymore. and him acting childish is the whole appeal of these movies

I am surprised people don't get this. The whole idea behind Shazam..even in his Captian Marvel days..was a superhero with the mind of a kid. Take that away and you just have a ripoff of Superman.

They been casting 30 year olds to play high school kids since time immemorial. It'll be fine

Yes, to play high schoolers in this senior year. Playing the age of Billy in Shazam is another story...
