Shazam! Star Zachary Levi breaks silence on ‘DC Drama’ amid James Gunn’s recast and changes

There’s been no shortage of speculation about the future of the DC Universe, with James Gunn and Peter Safran teasing elements of their new plans as co-executives of DC Studios. The duo’s new era of novelization based on the publisher’s characters already includes a major recast, with plans to reboot Superman with a new, younger actor moving forward, and wondering what other existing characters might be recast in the process. Shazam! Co-star Zachary Levi is the latest to weigh in on the speculation, assuring fans that while he’s not quite sure what the future holds, he has faith in Gunn and Safran’s overall plans. This comes after Levi previously responded to tweets from fans suggesting he be recast, with the actor replying “Woah, I’m really not going to believe everything you see on the internet…we’re all Gucci.”

“I’m not the boss, I have no idea what happens in the end, but I can tell you without a doubt that…” Levy said, in part, during an Instagram Live. “Listen, I loved Walter Hamada. I loved him as a president, I love him as a human being, and I hope to work with him wherever he goes. But I couldn’t have chosen two better people to be the people who are now helping steer the direction of the DC Universe.”

Levy continued, “At this point now, I’m still that character. I haven’t had any outgoing conversations with the bosses. We have a movie that’s actually coming out in March.” “…I have no idea what will happen to me in the end. I think I’m in a pretty good position…”
