While talking about Shazam’s role in the new DCU, the actor shared that he is looking forward to a meeting with the new DC executives and stressed that his upcoming movie will play a huge role in his future in the DCU. He stated,

“There’s definitely little ideas here and there that I brought up in the past, but I’m sure I’m gonna sit down with [DC Studios heads] James [Gunn] and Peter [Safran] soon enough and we’ll talk about what we think the trajectory of all this will be. You know, the success of the second movie will determine a lot.” 

The actor further added,

“It’s just a matter of just trying to figure out what we can do to keep making good material that includes Shazam, staying true to the character and doing right by our fan base and all the people who have supported the comic and the character for coming up on a century. There are all manner of different things that can be done.”

The Shazam actor expressed his love for Mark Waid’s1996 comic, which is a twisted take on the DC universe, where the older generation of DC superheroes find themselves battling their younger incarnation. And it isn’t the first time when someone has teased a live-action adaptation of the iconic storyline, as previously James Gunn also posted about this on his social media handles. Levi stated,

“Kingdom Come would be something so amazing to do, even if it means me sacrificing my own life. I think it’s something that fans would fucking devour.” 

Fans have also agreed with Levi and shared their desire to witness the Kingdom Come storyline being adapted to big screens. As many fans believe, it might be the perfect material to mark the return of Henry Cavill’s Superman in the DC universe.
