Could Billy Batson and Diana Prince share the screen together in the new SHAZAM film? If it was up to Zach Levi you bet your ass they would.
While speaking to ET online, Levi explained why he’d want Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman for a cameo:
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,’” Levi said. “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.”
Levi then went to say Superman would be a great cameo also, but because of the tone of the film.
“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!” Levi said. “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,” Levi said. “It’s not glum, and like, ‘Oh, I have to save the world again.’ So I think it’s all really gravy.”
Shazam! has an April 2019 release date and stars Zachary Levi as the title character, Asher Angel as Billy Batson, Jack Dylan Grazer as Freddy Freeman, Ian Chen as Eugene, Jovan Armand as Pedro, with Cooper Andrews, and Mark Strong is rumored as the villain.
