It’s become apparent that the new era of the DCU, that’s being spearheaded by James Gunn and Peter Safran, is going to endure a major clearing of the deck before it properly gets going, with many figures being removed from the board. That definitely includes Henry Cavill’s Superman, and likely Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman and Jason Momoa’s Aquaman, too (although he’ll be sticking around as another character).
In fact, a rumor doing the rounds states that only the surviving cast members of The Suicide Squad will live through the purge. Although Gunn has spoken out in an attempt to dispel the talk that he’s rebooting everything, that still hasn’t done much to allay fears that everyone is being shuffled out the door. That would therefore consequently include Zachary Levi’s Billy Batson, something that’d be a major blow to Shazam lovers. Not to mention a surprise, too, considering Levi and Gunn’s real-life friendship.
