Judy Scott on turned toward Slager on Thursday and said her faith in God gives her the ability to forgive him for killing her son. Morgan said Tuesday that his analysis of Slager showed a non-impulsive person who was "high in what we call conscientiousness".

The young actor joins the cast which now features Zachary Levi as the titular superhero, Asher Angel as Billy Batson, Grace Fulton, and Mark Strong as Doctor Sivana.

Unlike Billy Batson, Freddy stays a boy when he transforms instead of becoming an adult. In the comic books, Freddy has also assumed the identity of Captain Marvel, Jr., as well as Captain Marvel/Shazam. While fishing with his grandfather Jacob, the Freemans go from innocent bystanders to victims of this battle with Jacob dying in the aftermath.

The film is to be directed by David F. Sandberg from a screenplay by Henry Gayden and Darren Lemke. Production on the project is expected to kick off in February of next year.
