Zachary Levi has been on the cusp of stardom for years now and his biggest role to date will come in DC Comics adaptation Shazam next year. The movie isn't expected to start shooting until next month so it's going to be a while before we see anything from it but the Thor: Ragnarok actor has now weighed in his excitement to play the character and makes an interesting comparison when it comes to its tone. 

"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."
 
With New Line in charge of Shazam, it's hard to say how the movie is going to fit into the rest of the DC Films Universe but cameos surely can't be off the cards and the hero meeting Wonder Woman would be cool. Asked for his thoughts on that, Levi replied enthusiastically so here's hoping it happens.
 
"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."

What do you guys think of Levi's remarks? Are you excited to see Shazam in theaters next year?
