Zachary Levi Suggests There Are No Plans To Recast Shazam In The New DC Universe

James Gunn has indicated that DC’s future won’t be made totally clear until January, but that hasn’t stopped fans from speculating about the future of their favorites in the wake of a near-constant onslaught of rumors and trade reporting on the studio. Earlier this month, word got out that Patty Jenkins’ “Wonder Woman 3” would not be moving forward. Meanwhile, Henry Cavill announced his return as Superman back in October and left Netflix’s “The Witcher” in November, before sharing the news last week that he’s officially out as the Man of Steel in accordance with Gunn and Safran’s vision for the studio.

Zachary Levi’s post also came in the wake of yet another bombshell bit of news, as Dwayne Johnson posted a message to Twitter this afternoon indicating that Black Adam will also be absent from the upcoming slate of DC projects, at least for the time being. Pretty much nothing feels like a guarantee in the world of DC films right now, but Levi’s sunglass emoji seems to indicate that he’s not worried about the future of Shazam.

It’s unclear as of publication time whether Levi’s optimistic statement means that his version of Shazam will officially survive the clean slate maneuver the new heads of DC seem to be employing, but it certainly seems to imply as much. We’ll keep you posted as we learn more.¬†

“Shazam! Fury of the Gods” hits theaters on March 17, 2023.
