After spending the higher a part of a decade in improvement, the Shazam movie is lastly rushing in direction of manufacturing. Since final October, we have been hit with quite a few casting announcement, which kicked off when Zachary Levi was recruited to play the World’s Mightiest Mortal. Very similar to lots of the upcoming DC Prolonged Universe films, Shazam might be a standalone story, displaying why the eponymous hero is particular with out having to share the limelight with anybody else. Nevertheless, that does not essentially imply we could not see one other DC superhero pop up in Shazam or a possible sequel, and Levi is very to see Billy Batson work together with Marvel Lady on the large display screen. The actor defined:
Marvel Lady, as a result of she’s superior. I believe getting a cameo from anyone can be tremendous cool, however I simply assume Gal Gadot is so effervescent. She has such a appeal. And she or he looks like a extremely cool broad. Like, she was within the Israeli military. She’s a mother. And I am like, ‘You appear to be you are grounded and funky, and also you’re Marvel Lady, and also you rock.’ And I believe it will be actually humorous to have the 14-year-old Billy Batson inside Shazam that is actually awkward round this lovely Amazonian. I simply assume that may be actually superior.
Whereas there’s been no phrase but on every other superhero displaying up in Shazam, with manufacturing starting subsequent month, it is completely attainable that director David F. Sandberg might discover a method to match a Marvel Lady cameo into the story. However even when that does not occur, the type of scene Zachary Levi laid out whereas talking with Collider sounds intriguing. Marvel Lady and Shazam have been longtime allies within the comics, and whereas we would not count on these two to spend almost as a lot time with each other on this cinematic world, it will nonetheless be nice to see an interplay between them someplace within the DCEU, particularly now that Marvel Lady has publicly debuted as a superhero following Justice League. Billy Batson’s adolescent awkwardness combined with Diana’s regality would make for an amusing encounter.
It stays to be seen whether or not or not Zachary Levi’s want might be granted and Marvel Lady and Shazam will meet within the DCEU, however at the least the longer term’s trying brilliant for Marvel Lady. Gal Gadot is already lined as much as star in Wonder Woman 2 (which is rumored to be one other prequel), and she or he’s additionally reportedly showing in Flashpoint. As for Shazam, whereas no particular plot particulars have been revealed but, the film will present how the younger Billy Batson obtained the power to change into a mighty grownup superhero by simply saying the magic phrase.
Shazam will work its magic in theaters sometime in 2019, so keep tuned to CinemaBlend for extra updates on the way it’s growing.
