After James Gunn Kicked Him Out of DC, Zachary Levi’s $565M Franchise Reboot Slammed as “Terrible”

Zachary Levi’s Shazam! Fury of the Gods was a massively underwhelming box office bomb. Having little to no excitement about the movie around its release, the movie’s success died down very quickly and it only managed to secure a score of 49% on Rotten Tomatoes. Levi has been very vocal about his opinions on this subject and has found many reasons to blame its performance.

His performance in the movie may have been the reason why Levi seems to not have any role in James Gunn’s plan for his first phase of the DCEU, Gods and Monsters. This, however, did not stop Levi from looking to other horizons with his upcoming reboot of a cult classic movie.
