“These So Call Fans Complain Like…” – DC Fandom Split in Two Over Zack Levi’s Line in Shazam With Some Bringing Robert Downey Jr Into Discussion

Recently, the DC Extended Universe has been going through significant changes. With James Gunn and veteran executive Peter Safran taking over as the new co-CEOs of DC, the franchise seems to be heading towards a new direction. And recently, at the San Diego Comic-Con, the fans witnessed some exciting updates, including the trailer of DC’s much-anticipated project, Shazam 2.

As we all know, the sequel to Shazam has been coming along for a long time. The anticipation of Shazam! Fury Of Gods had been on and off continuously as the movie went through a series of delays. And now, the sequel is just a couple of months away from its premiere. Recently,  the trailer of Shazam! Fury Of Gods was first released during the San Diego Comic-Con 2022. While most of the trailer is entertaining with the usual humor and family-friendly vibe, the DC fandom split in two over a single line by Zachary Levi.

What line from the Shazam 2 trailer divides the DC fandom?

Recently at the San Diego Comic-Con, DC released the first trailer of Shazam! The Fury Of Gods. What was supposed to be a big update for the DC fandom instead upset them. A line by Zachary Levi in the trailer left some fans upset that they criticised the director David F. Sandberg so severely that he decided to remove the line from the movie. Towards the end of the trailer, Zachary threw a truck at the dragon and stated, “I just threw a truck at a dragon. I love my life.” What was supposed to be the familiar trope of stating the obvious for comedic effect instead upset some fans.

Furthermore, the fans went on to call it a cringe line and even a cringe movie. On the other hand, some fans came to its defence. A handful of people defended the line stating the character Billy is just a kid and the line ideally suited him. Interestingly, the age-old debate between DC and MCU sparked again with fans bringing Robert Downey Jr. into the discussion.
