SHAZAM : Zachary Levi Wants Wonder Woman In The Movie.

Zachary Levi has revealed which Superheroe cameo will be perfect for the upcoming live-action film adaptation of Shazam!. Levi revealed in a recent interview that a cameo by Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) would be "really awesome."

"Wonder Woman, because she’s awesome. 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."

Levi also said that the movie is like a Superman meets Big.

"I can’t tell you much," the actor says, "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."

By the sound it, seems like Shazam! will be some kind of Superheroe-comedy film.

Shazam! live-action film adaptation is set to start production from February through May 2018, in Toronto, Ontario. David F. Sandberg (Lights Out) is directing the film from a script by Henry Gayden and Darren Lemke. The film also stars Grace Fulton as Mary Marvel, Jack Dylan Grazer as Freddy Freedman, Ian Chen as Eugene, Jovan Armand as Pedro, and Mark Strong as Doctor Sivana.

The story follows Billy Batson, a boy who, by speaking the magic word "SHAZAM" (acronym of six "immortal elders": Solomon, Hercules, Atlas, Zeus, Achilles, and Mercury), can transform himself into an adult superhero with the powers of superhuman strength, speed, flight, and other abilities.

Shazam, formally known as Captain Marvel, was created by writer Bill Parker and artist C. C. Beck in 1939. The character made his first appeared in Whiz Comics #2 (cover-dated Feb. 1940), published by Fawcett Comics. DC comics licensed the Marvel Family ( Captain Marvel, Mary Marvel and Captain Marvel Jr.) characters from Fawcett in 1972. By 1991, DC had acquired all rights to the characters. In 2011 DC renamed the character "Shazam" when relaunching its comic book properties due to trademark conflicts over another character named "Captain Marvel" owned by Marvel Comics since 1967.

Dwayne Johnson is set to play Shazam's arch nemesis Black Adam, in a standalone film. “Shazam!” will begin filming ahead of the “Flashpoint,” “Batgirl,” directed by Joss Whedon, and Gavin O’Connor's “Suicide Squad” 2.

SHAZAM is scheduled for release in April, 2019.
