DCEU’s fictional female superhero Zatanna is going to be turned into a movie. This is great news for all DC fans who just cannot wait any longer to watch their favorite character come to life. With the DCEU expanding, it’s only natural that one of the most powerful sorceresses will soon appear in live action.
However, the fans may have to hold their smiles because it has been reported that someone who is not, particularly an actor is being considered to play the lead role.
Zatanna’s Movie Adaptation In DCEU
In March of 2021, the movie adaptation of Zatanna by DC was confirmed and it was also revealed that the Academy Award Winning Actor and director Emerald Ferrell would be the writer of the project.
Emerald Ferrell confessed that working on this project is “scary and intense.”
“It’s something that we’ve been working on for a while. I’ve been speaking to Bad Robot [Productions], who are amazing. You want to get the first bit right, which is the script before you think of anything else.” She added, “I’m such a genre fan. I’m a fan of witchcraft, magic, and comic books, and this is scary and intense.”
Is DC’s Zatanna Casting Going To Piss Off Fans?
It is very evident that DC fans do not believe in holding back their opinions and taunts when DC makes an unforgivable mistake (*cough* Green Lantern *cough*).
So, it’s going to be very interesting to witness the reactions of fans when they find out that none other than the very well-known pop star, Dua Lipa, is being considered to play the lead role of Zatanna in DC’s upcoming Zatanna Movie.
A lot of fans believe that this casting is absolutely going to ruin the movie since Dua Lipa is not a professional actor, going even as far as stating that “At this point who isn’t being considered for a superhero movie.”
RUMOR✨ Apparently singer Dua Lipa is in talks to star in an upcoming DC film. It is a possibility this is the upcoming ‘Zatanna’ solo film.

Fans’ disappointment regarding the casting of Zatanna is very evident on social media.
“Did They Forget Alexandra Daddario?” DC Fans Dislike The Consideration Of Dua Lipa As Zatanna Lead
It is no news that the fans of DCEU have been really considering the casting of Alexandra Daddario to play the lead female superhero in Zatanna.
Having been verbal about this request of theirs on multiple occasions, it really rubbed the fans of DCEU wrong that someone else is even chosen to play the role; especially a non-actor like Dua Lipa who has absolutely no experience with such complicated acting projects.
Of course, DC is currently facing a backlash what with this disappointing news circling the media.
