Zachary Levi is currently preparing for his role as Shazam! in the upcoming DC movie Shazam!. While promoting the second season of Tangled: The Series, Levi spoke about his excitement for the role.
"So, it's all very humbling, and the script is great and the cast is great and I love our director, David F. Sandberg."
He's also excited for the upbeat nature of the film, something unheard of in the DC Cinematic Universe
"I can't tell you much, as you can probably imagine, but what I can say is I am just out of my mind excited! I get to do my version of Big, basically. It's like Superman meets Big, and that's just so fun. 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."
And if Levi had his choice of which superhero could cameo in his film? Easy answer for him, 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. Like, she was in the Israeli army. She's a mom. And I'm like, 'You seem like you're grounded and cool, and you're Wonder Woman, and you rock.' 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."
Shazam!, directed by David F. Sandberg, stars Levi and Asher Angel, and is set to release April 5th, 2019.
