If you follow Shazam director David F. Sandberg on Instagram you know that he’s deep in the pre-production process right now. With Shazam expected to start shooting early next year, he’ll need to cast his lead actor soon.

Today, Omega Underground came across a Shazam audition video of Arrow actor Parker Young. The video was published by Young a week ago, and shows him acting out several scenes as Shazam with mentions of other heroes in the DC Extended Universe like Batman and Superman.

Check out Young’s audition video above, and let me know if you think he’d be a good choice for Shazam in the comments below. (Update: Unfortunately Young has now password protected the video, but you can check out a clip from a fan account below)
