News images are unleashed from the Shazam! movie with Zachary Levi offering he wants the titular character in another Justice League movie.
“I hope I get to be part of the Justice League,” Levi told Empire. “At San Diego, Jason Momoa quite literally took me under his wing, put his arm around me and was like, ‘Welcome to the family.’”
No known Justice League movies are currently in the works, and with Warner Bros. moving away from a cinematic shared universe, it could be a while before Zachary Levi's wish comes true. Maybe sometime down the road a new version will be made with a different cast of characters featuring Shazam?
Levi also touched upon his time with Marvel, which saw his MCU character, Fandral, killed off in Thor: Ragnarok.
“I just don’t think those characters were quite utilized to the best of their abilities,” Levi said. “Thor and the Warriors Three could have been a really cool little trilogy of team movies, and we didn’t really have that much impact. Particularly not in Ragnarok – I mean, I didn’t even have a line.”
Shazam! gets released April 5, 2019 directed by David S. Sandberg also starring Jack Dylan Grazer as Billy’s best friend and ultimate superhero enthusiast, Freddy, part of the foster family that includes Mary, played by Grace Fulton; Darla, played by Faithe Herman; Eugene, played by Ian Chen, and Pedro, played by Jovan Armand. Cooper Andrews and Marta Milans play foster parents Victor and Rosa Vasquez, with Oscar nominee Djimon Hounsou as the Wizard.
The movie is described as: 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).
