While appearing at Heroes & Villains Fan Fest in San Jose, Levi briefly discussed the Shazam movie and shared his hope that the character and the franchise can become DC’s version of Guardians of the Galaxy, which obviously became a sensational hit for Marvel Studios and the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The actor also discusses his excitement to join the DC Extended Universe and the Justice League characters but is very aware that Billy Batson will offer a more comedic and fun tone, compared to Ben Affleck’s Batman, Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman, and Henry Cavill’s Superman.

Watch the interview below:

Directed by David Sandberg, Shazam will be the next DC Comics film to enter production after James Wan’s Aquaman movie. The film stars Zachary Levi as the older incarnation of Billy Batson while Asher Angel will portray the younger version of the character.

Shazam is currently scheduled for release on April 5, 2019!
