Set to star in the upcoming movie “Shazam! Fury of the Gods,” Rachel Zegler has revealed in a new interview that she actually read for the role of Supergirl for “The Flash”.

In an interview with SlashFilm.com, the actress revealed that before she was cast to play Anthea, the daughter of Atlas for the upcoming “Shazam!” sequel, she had read for the role of Supergirl, but wasn’t right for the part.

“I read for Rich [Delia], who was our casting director, and he originally had come to me with Supergirl for Flash, and I was not right for it,” said Zegler. “He was like, ‘You know what, I’ve got a character in mind for you for Shazam. They’re looking at X, Y, Z. We would love it if you came in and read.'”

As we know, Sasha Calle won the role of Supergirl, and will appear in “The Flash,” which is set to premiere on June 16, 2023. While “Shazam! Fury of the Gods” will premiere March 17, 2023.
