Before he was cast to play the titular DC Comics superhero in Shazam!, Zachary Levi played two characters in Disney-owned properties. Comic book fans recognize him as Fandral in Thor: The Dark World and Thor: Ragnarok, but many also recognize him for his voice work as Flynn Rider (Eugene Fitzherbert) in the animated film, Tangled.
Naturally, a fan of Levi’s created special fan art that re-imagines Flynn Rider as Shazam. As you expect, Levi loved this piece of fan art:
If you think about it, since hopefully we will see Levi’s Shazam and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s Black Adam battle it out in a DC Extended Universe film in the near future, someone will eventually create some fan art depicting Johnson’s Moana character Maui as Black Adam. That way, we will have both Flynn Rider and Maui battle it out DC Comics style.
Are you excited to see more come out from Shazam!? Sound off in the comments below, and be sure to continue following Heroic Hollywood for all the latest news in the DCEU.
Here’s the synopsis for Shazam!:
“We all have a superhero inside us, it just takes a bit of magic to bring it out. In Billy Batson’s (Angel) case, by shouting out one word—SHAZAM!—this streetwise 14-year-old foster kid can turn into the adult Super Hero Shazam (Levi), courtesy of an ancient wizard. Still a kid at heart—inside a ripped, godlike body—Shazam revels in this adult version of himself by doing what any teen would do with superpowers: have fun with them! Can he fly? Does he have X-ray vision? Can he shoot lightning out of his hands? Can he skip his social studies test? Shazam sets out to test the limits of his abilities with the joyful recklessness of a child. But he’ll need to master these powers quickly in order to fight the deadly forces of evil controlled by Dr. Thaddeus Sivana (Strong).”
Directed by David F. Sandberg, Shazam! stars Zachary Levi, Asher Angel, Grace Fulton, Jack Dylan Grazer, Cooper Andrews, Marta Milans, Faithe Herman, Ian Chen, Jovan Armand, Ron Cephas Jones and Mark Strong as Doctor Sivana.
Shazam! is scheduled to be released in theaters on April 5, 2019.
