Zachary Levi Thinks Shazam Could Beat The Flash In A Fight

While speaking at MegaCon Orlando 2019, Zachary Levi revealed that he thinks Shazam could beat The Flash in a fight.

Shazam! was a breakout hit for actor Zachary Levi. While the actor has had big TV roles, his film appearances have been somewhat limited, with his most notable role being Fandral in Thor: The Dark World and Thor: Ragnarok. However after his turn playing Shazam, Zachary Levi has solidified himself as a superhero.

While answering questions at MegaCon Orlando, Zachary Levi was asked who would win in a fight between Shazam and The Flash. Here’s what the Shazam! actor had to say on the matter

“Shazam, thank you for your question… Tell Grant Gustin I said hi, and Ezra! Tell all the Flashes!”

So it seems the new superhero in town is a bit cocky. As it stands, Shazam and The Flash haven’t appeared on the silver screen together yet but many fans are still hopeful that will hapen. We can expect to see Zachary Levi return as Shazam following the success of his film, with sequel currently being written by Henry Gayden.

However, the fate of the DCEU’s The Flash is still up in the air. The Flash movie starring Justice League actor Ezra Miller was supposed to originally be released in 2018 before Aquaman. However, due to production difficulties, The Flash has been pushed back repeatedly. The project currently has Spider-Man: Homecoming writers Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daily attached to direct, but it’s currently in libo with reports claiming that The Flash star Ezra Miller is unhappy with the script and the tone of the film.

The most recent update on The Flash came two months ago when it was revealed that Ezra Miller and comic book writer Grant Morrison have teamed up to pitch their own version of the movie to Warner Brothers. If the studio doesn’t like their script, Ezra Miller will likely leave the project and the role will be recast.

Do you want to see Ezra Miller return as The Flash? Who would do you think would win in a fight between the Scarlet Speedster and Shazazm? Let us know in the comments!

Here’s the official 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).”

Zachary Levi’s Shazam! is now playing in theaters.

Top Actors To Replace Ben Affleck In Matt Reeves’ ‘The Batman’

Previous1 of 7

Batman Ben Affleck Matt ReevesBen Affleck is officially out as Batman and it's a pretty sad day.

Words cannot describe how sad I am to see Ben Affleck announce that he's no longer Batman. His Batman is why I do what I do. In Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, I fell in love with his comic book-accurate interpretation of the Caped Crusader. It was a breath of fresh air and it felt like we finally had the one true Batman.

Three years have quickly sped by and we're officially going to receive a new Batman for his next movie. Last night, Ben Affleck announced that he will not return as the Dark Knight in Matt Reeves' The Batman and now everyone's attention has moved towards wanting to know who the next Bruce Wayne will be. Matt Reeves is said to want an actor that's around 20 years younger than Affleck while Warner Bros. wants someone older. My guess is that Reeves wants a fresh start while the studio wants an older actor for crossover potential.

In this list, I will discuss the actors I think can replace Ben Affleck as Batman using the parameters that Matt Reeves and Warner Bros. want. Hit Next to see our picks to play the Batman.

Michael Fassbender

Michael Fassbender X-Men

Michael Fassbender is an X-Men alum and no stranger to comic book franchises. The actor has shown multiple levels of range and could definitely handle the Batman/Bruce Wayne personality. If they go with the older range for the next Dark Knight, then Fassbender is probably one of the best choices to take over the role.

Ben Barnes

The Punisher Ben Barnes Billy Russo Jigsaw Marvel

Ben Barnes is out of a job after The Punisher season 2 and he's one of the best actors in that series. The second season tied up Barnes' arc on The Punisher and the actor has already told us that that he'd love to play the Caped Crusader. Barnes definitely has the pretty boy look going on for him and I wonder what his take on Bruce Wayne could be.

Ryan Gosling

Ryan Gosling Blade Runner 2049

I've said this before and I'll say it again: Ryan Gosling needs to star in a superhero movie. I've always thought Gosling would make a great Batman. Every role that he's done has shown us his capability and he could crush it as Bruce Wayne.

Jon Hamm

Jon Hamm Mad Men

Jon Hamm is my top choice for an older Batman. If Warner Bros. wants to cast an older actor for crossover potential, Jon Hamm is the studio's best bet. He has a similar look to Ben Affleck, and c'mon, the guy's look just screams Bruce Wayne.

Armie Hammer

Armie Hammer The Man from U.N.C.L.E.

Armie Hammer is 32 years old and was cast as the Caped Crusader in George Miller's Justice League: Mortal. That film will never see the light of day, but that doesn’t mean that Hammer doesn't deserve a second shot at being the Batman. He's charming, broody and will probably give his all for this role. Armie Hammer is a great option because he's young enough for Matt Reeves and Warner Bros. could work in a way for him to crossover with the rest of the DC Extended Universe.

Richard Madden

Richard Madden Bodyguard

Game of Thrones alum Richard Madden is my top choice to replace Ben Affleck as Batman. The actor is young, has the look and definitely has the acting chops to play the duality of Batman and Bruce Wayne. Madden just won the Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Television series for the BBC drama Bodyguard, so Warner Bros. may want to quickly snatch him up.
