Shazam! star Zachary Levi would like to see his version of Shazam take on Superman and Black Adam in a fight. Although he will face off against the evil Dr. Thaddeus Sivana (Mark Strong) in his first solo outing, the actor would like DC and Warner Bros. to consider the other two for future movies.
In an interview with ComicBook.com, Levi spoke about some characters he would like to see Shazam go up against. Two of those characters are Henry Cavill’s Superman and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s Black Adam.
“I would love for Shazam and Black Adam to go head to head, I would love that. And I would love for like Shazam and Superman to go head to head because in the comic books those have been some iconic fights. You know there’s so many cool things we could with the character, but one movie at a time, I’m just so stoked that we’re here right now. That we made the movie, we got through that winter in Toronto. These talented young fools are just going to continue to take over the world and I’m just going to hang onto their coattails.”
Some DC Comics fans are already disappointed by the lack of Black Adam in the film, so Levi’s comments are right in line with what fans would like to see. One can only hope that DC and Warner Bros. pay attention to these remarks because a Shazam battle with Superman or Black Adam would undoubtedly offer something highly entertaining.
