Los Angeles: Actor Grace Fulton is in negotiations to star in DC's superhero movie Shazam!.

Actor Zachary Levi was earlier cast as the lead in the film, which follows a boy named Billy Batson who can transform into an adult superhero by uttering the magic word Shazam!.

The Annabelle: Creation star will portray the role of one of the close friends of Batson in the film to be directed by David F Sandberg, reported Variety.

Shazam! is an acronym of the ancient world gods and historical figures Solomon, Hercules, Atlas, Zeus, Achilles and Mercury, from which the big Batson derives his heroic attributes when in adult form.

The film is being developed concurrently with a film focusing on Shazam villain Black Adam featuring Dwayne Johnson.
