The actor Zachary Levi will keep playing Shazam in the DCUafter the second movie airing in 2023. There were rumors that this would be the last time Levi would dress up as the character because DC Studios is changing, but he has since denied those rumors.
The actor used social media to dispel rumors that, as a result of changes at DC Studios, he would lose his role in the "Shazam!" franchise.
It all began with a tweet that read, "I'm so upset that Zachary Levi won't be Shazam anymore." He was the ideal casting choice, and to rub salt in the wound, James Gunn is a close friend of his some fans have noted.
Future DC Universe projects have been evaluated by Gunn and co-CEO of DC Studios, Peter Safran.
As a result, a few things have changed, such as the cancellation of the third "Wonder Woman" movie and the declaration that Henry Cavill won't be appearing in "Superman" movies.
Another Twitter user responded to the announcement that Levi would no longer be playing Shazam by writing, "I want this not to be real because his Shazam is the one DCEU project I would throw my hands in the air to defend."
In local performances of Grease, The Outsiders, Oliver, The Wizard of Oz, and Big River, among others, Zachary made his acting debut. His performance of Jesus in Ojai's Godspell is what first caught Hollywood's eye.
Levi plays a superhero in his newest movie, "Shazam!" who utilizes his abilities to battle evil. He uses his celebrity to start dialogues about mental health and to de-stigmatize depression off-screen.
Actor Dwayne Johnson recently stated that the crossover between Shazam and his heavenly antihero is "going to happen." But first, they had to accurately establish each superhero's backstory.
On March 17, 2023, Zachary Levi will reprise his role as Shazam! in the sequel. DC's Shazam! was a critical success in 2018, but it only made close to $370 million globally, falling short of expectations. Shazam! has the lowest box office performance among DC superhero films based on that figure.
A few things have changed, such as the cancellation of the third "Wonder Woman" movie and the declaration that Henry Cavill won't be appearing in "Superman" movies.
Barry Allen will next be featured in his very own solo Flash movie, following his cameos in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, Suicide Squad, and Justice League. Unfortunately, a great deal of drama behind the scenes has allowed for a lot of time to pass.
