SHAZAM Star Zachary Levi Talks Excitement and Hope for a Wonder Woman Cameo

We’re only a few weeks away from the start of production on Shazam, the next installment of the DC Films Universe. Zachary Levi and Asher Angel star as Billy Batson and Shazam, respectively. Levi has particularly been vocal about his enthusiasm for the film, and in a new interview, he rehashes that.

Speaking with Entertainment Tonight, Levi talks about his excitement, praising the crew and comparing the tone to Superman meets Big. He also says that Shazam will genuinely enjoy being a superhero, unlike some other big screen superheroes in recent years. “I get to be a superhero that’s excited about being a superhero, and I think that’s refreshing. It’s not glum, and like, ‘Oh, I have to save the world again.’ So I think it’s all really gravy.”

As for which DC hero he would want to see cameo in Shazam, Levi quickly names Wonder Woman. “I think getting a cameo from anybody would be super cool, but I just think Gal Gadot is so effervescent. She has such a charm. And she seems like a really cool broad. … And I think it would be really funny to have the 14-year-old Billy Batson inside of Shazam that’s really awkward around this beautiful Amazonian. I just think that would be really awesome.”

Even if Wonder Woman isn’t in Shazam, we’ll be seeing plenty more of her. Following the huge success of her movie last year, a sequel will be released in 2019. Also, she is expected to appear in Flashpoint, while there is always the chance of a Justice League sequel happening one day…maybe…hopefully.

Shazam will begin production next month for an April 2019 release.
