Last month, Jack Dylan Grazer joined the DC animated universe as Jonathan Kent, the son of Clark Kent and Lois Lane and heir to Superman’s powers. Long before that, however, Grazer had entered the DC Universe as Freddy Freeman, Billy Batson’s best friend and eventual sidekick, who masters Shazam’s power. So, who would he want to play Jon Kent in live action? Well, he has a few ideas, but ultimately wonders if there’s a way to get away with it. Likewise, he says he would love to play Freddy in animation, giving him a chance to bounce on himself in a conversation between Superboy and Freddy in the animation booth.
Neither is likely to happen, but it could be a lot of fun – especially for Grazer, who loves both characters. Still, he doesn’t feel territorial and would like to see them realized on screen.
When asked which character he would like to face Jonathan Kent in the DC animated universe, Grazer replied, “Captain Marvel Jr. That would be trippy. I’d have to make a little voice adjustment if they did both voices.”
As for who Jon would play live, he said, “I’d probably cast Jacob Tremblay or something, I don’t know,” adding, “Can I say it? Can I say I want to do it?”
It is, after all, a multiverse. If someone is too similar, you can just say “um, it’s a doppelgänger.”
You can get Batman and Superman: Battle of the Supersons now on DVD, Blu-ray, 4K and digital.
Grazer’s next scheduled appearance in the DC Universe is coming up Shazam: Anger of the Godswhich is set to hit theaters in March 2023.
In Shazam! Anger of the godswhen Billy Batson and his foster siblings, who turn into superheroes by shouting “Shazam!” must travel to make peace with the gods because Billy takes their powers for granted.
