It has been announced that the upcoming Shazam! movie will be set in the same cinematic universe as Man of Steel, Batman Vs. Superman, Justice League, etc. That and the fact that The Rock will be playing Black Adam are all we know about the movie thus far. I really want to find out who DC has in mind to portray Captain Marvel - and more importantly Billy Batson. That's the tougher role to fill - the producers clearly would like several movie appearances out of Shazam if they are incorporating him into their shared universe, and that means finding someone young enough to play the part of Billy for a decade or more. You don't want a 22 year old kid transforming into an adult, It doesn't really work that way.
Cap and Thor have clashed once before, way back in STF #120.
