Shazam! star Zachary Levi is excited about the possibility of joining the Justice League.
Zachary Levi is no stranger to geek culture, so of course he’s excited about all of the possibilities that can happen during his tenure as Shazam. He recently sat down with Entertainment Tonight and discussed how he’s “one hundred percent” looking forward to possibly joining the Justice League.
“I’m looking at these posters going, ‘If this all goes well, and I get this job, and we go make this movie, and it does well, and this does well then I’ll be, theoretically, I’ll be on that next billboard with all those characters, so I haven’t just been thinking about it since I’ve been the character, I’ve been thinking about well before I got the job!”
The Shazam! star went on to discuss the possible dynamics between his character and other Justice League members:
“I’m a 14-year-old and we’ve got Wonder Woman there and just having a total crush… Like, how do you act cool when you’re crushing on the most beautiful woman in the world who also happens to be a goddess? And trying to act cool around Superman and Batman and all that stuff? I mean, my brain was just immediately going to all those possibilities cause I think it would be a whole lot of fun.”
When it comes to The Flash, Levi thinks the age range between his character and Ezra Millers Flash could ensue a lot of fun:
“We’d literally be racing each other [all the time], I think I’d be trying to arm wrestle Superman all the time. We’d just be goofing off. Oh God, I want it to happen so bad!”

Shazam! stars Zachary Levi, Asher Angel, Grace Fulton, Jack Dylan Grazer, Cooper Andrews, Marta Milans, Faithe Herman, Ian Chen, Jovan Armand, Djimon Honsou and Mark Strong as Doctor Sivana. Here’s the official synopsis:
“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).”
Shazam! hits theaters on April 5, 2019.
