Zachary Levi quashes 'Shazam' replacement claim amid DC reshuffle
Actor Zachary Levi known for his portrayal of DC Extended Universe's Shazam cleared up the rumors of him being recast as the superhero. This comes after an angry fan took to Twitter regarding the probable replacement of the actor amid the reshuffling of DC management. The reshuffling is taking place after James Gunn and Peter Safran became the new honchos of DC Studios.
Why does this story matter?
- DC Studios is one of the most famous production companies that have produced some amazing films. It has a mass following because of its wide range of superheroes, although DC Extended Universe has not been supremely successful.
- This new shuffle in structure is extremely important for its massive fan base and some decisions have not gone well with the fans.
