Zachary has previously been depicted on Twitter as the lightning-wielding superhero by user @ComicLoverMari’. I’m furious that Zachary Levi won’t be playing Shazam anymore because he was the ideal fit for the role and because he is good friends with James Gunn, the user added.

In response to the tweet, a different person named “@bellatrixkale23” wrote, “I hope this isn’t true since Shazam is the one DCEU character I would throw my hands up to defend. The idea is @ZacharyLevi. Zachary didn’t reply to this tweet at all.

The recently appointed CEOs of DC Studios, James Gunn and Peter Safran, have lately made significant modifications to the production and presentation of the studio’s film slate, particularly the Superman and Wonder Woman franchises.

According to the US-based entertainment website Variety, the concept for a new Superman movie starring Henry Cavill and directed by Charles Roven was placed on hold when Gunn and Safran took over DC Studios in November. Beginning with a new Superman movie with a plot by Gunn that won’t star Cavill, the two are redesigning the DC Universe. According to a studio insider quoted by Variety, Patty Jenkins, the filmmaker of the Wonder Woman movies, had presented a treatment for Wonder Woman 3 but the senior executives of the studio rejected it since it didn’t fit with the new intentions of the CEO duo.
