” Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes. Look, if DC involved me as well as claimed, ‘Hey Zach, we would certainly like to be in business with you. Would you like to play any of the characters in our universe?’ My response would undoubtedly be ‘Yes, please, thank you.’ There’s some that I would like to play more, I mean because I assume they’re more vibrant characters. But, I would certainly enjoy playing some dark, brooding [personality],” he responded.

Zachary Levi discusses DC Superheroes

“There’s a reason Batman is among one of the most successful characters. Actually, from a TV and also movie perspective, Batman is much more successful than Superman, right? Superman is an even more prominent personality in the record of background, so why is that? Consider it. Superman– and also, by the way, I love Superman– Superman is the supreme boy scout. Superman is true; he’s going to choose right. I enjoy that because Chuck and Shazam are sort of similar in that regard, I enjoy that regarding Superman. But for the world we reside in, as well as all of the things we type of hold up as well as value and whatever, I imply, Batman’s means sexier. Batman’s like, he’s got concerns [chuckles]”.

Levi added, “Yes, I would certainly enjoy doing every one of that.”.
