Right now, the DC Extended Universe is at a bit of a crossroads. Do they keep going as planned, or can we expect a reboot of sorts in the near future?

Regardless of what route they take, there will likely still be room for Shazam (which is being developed by the Warner Bros. subsidiary, New Line Cinema), when all said and done. Why? Well, he sort of operates in his own world, despite being of the same world. Speaking at Heroes and Villains Fan Fest in San Jose, actor Zachary Levi geeked out of Shazam, and the potential he saw in the property for DC and Warner Bros.

Here’s what he had to say:

“James Gunn and the gang killed it. It brought so much heart and humor and yeah, I think it was kind of like this dark horse that took everybody by storm and I think Shazam kind of has the possibility to do that because Shazam’s not, for all intents and purposes, not Supes it’s not Batman, it’s not Wonder Woman, it’s not what people [expect.]. If you look at most of the Justice League montages or Justice League posters, Shazam is not necessarily one of the characters you put on there — except he is in the Justice League.”

What do you think of Levi’s statement? Do you think Shazam has a possibility of becoming the unexpected Guardians of the Galaxy of DC? Let us know your thoughts down below!
