Zachary Levi took to Instagram on Thursday to put forth his stand on Warner Bros’ future plans for films based on DC Comics. The actor’s sequel movie for DC, Shazam! Fury of the Gods is hitting theaters on March 17, 2023.
Levi wanted to clear out straight “random deceitful banter” running through social media online. He said the fans to “be patient and give them some space and some time to try and really make something special” with the DC Universe.
“Up to this point, there have been quite a few DC films that may have made some fans very happy, but they’re not tapping into the larger audience,” the talented actor said. “Marvel was very successful in doing that — bringing in as many people to the table, as many people that could be satiated and brought joy and all that stuff.”
He continued, “If you’re out there, and you really liked what happened before, you can do that — that’s fine. But recognize there’s a lot of people that didn’t like those things, and we should always be trying to, I think, tap into as much audience as possible, making as many people as happy as possible. That’s what we’re in entertainment for, and I think that’s what Peter and James are really trying to do, and it’s not an easy position. They got handed all of these things that were already in a lot of conflict. So guys, just fucking give them a break. Take it easy. Take a breath.”
