Shazam! Fury of the Gods was a disappointment for followers, critics, and Warner Bros. alike. Nevertheless, the movie’s star, Zachary Levi, has spoken out concerning the detrimental opinions, calling them “perplexingly low.”
The primary Shazam! film was a sleeper success for Warner Bros. and DC, main many to suspect Fury of the Gods could be one other quiet success. Nevertheless, following PR nightmares with Black Adam, inflating budgets and poor opinions, the movie grew to become a field workplace bomb. Regardless of this, Shazam! star Zachary Levi says he loved the venture, regardless of not understanding the scores being so low:
“But listen, as an experience, I really enjoyed making that movie and I really enjoyed playing that part,” Levi instructed The FilmUp podcast. “I don’t know what the future holds for it all because, unfortunately, the second movie was not as well-received. I mean, the audience score is still quite good, but the critic score was, I don’t know, very oddly and perplexingly low and people were insanely unkind.”
It’s no secret that followers and critics alike are a lot tougher on superhero movies than they was, with virtually each huge seasonal blockbuster coming from Marvel Studios or the DC Universe. Nevertheless, given how badly Shazam! Fury of the Gods underperformed given its inflated price range, it’s probably unkind opinions aren’t completely guilty.
The one factor Zachary Levi is correct about, nevertheless, is that his future as Shazam stays not sure as DC goes into its latest rebrand with James Gunn and Peter Safran. The mushy reboot has left the destiny of lots of DC’s “old guard” up within the air.
