James Gunn och Peter Safran har på kort tid lyckats röra om rejält i grytan hos DC och får på många håll nu utstå svidande kritik. Inte minst för att ha gett internets egen älskling Cavill kicken som Stålmannen. Men alla är inte emot dom två nya herrarna på täppan och nu kommer Shazam-stjärnan Zachary Levi till deras försvar.
"You have no idea the reasonings behind any of the decisions that are going on. The amount of conjecture and rumor mill and drama and nonsense that keeps getting spun around out there on Instagram and Twitter is laughable. It is unbelievably laughable. So I would just say be patient and give them some space and some time to try and really make something special. And I think something that DC deserves to have and something that [Zack] Snyder tried to do, and it just didn't ultimately materialize, guys."
Gunn behövde själv gå ut och öppet förklara att sparkandet av Cavill inte berodde på några av hans personliga åsikter om stjärnan. Något Levi också poängterade och utvecklade kring.
"not just making decisions because they like someone or don't like someone. They're making decisions based on what is best for Warner Bros., DC, that entire studio and entity and trying to make as many fans, as much of an audience, happy as they can."
Levi fortsatte även sedan genom att runda av på följande vis.
"If you're out there and really like what happened before, you can do that. That's fine. But realize that there's a lot of people who didn't like those things, and we should always be trying to tap into as much audience as possible, make as many people happy as possible. That's what we're in entertainment for, and that's what I think Peter and James are trying to do. And it's not an easy position. They got handed all these things that were already in a lot of conflict. So guys, just fucking give 'em a break. Take it easy. Take a breath. It's the holidays, for god's sake. Just go enjoy what the holidays are, give them some time to enjoy the holidays, and let's see what happens on the other side of this."
Tycker du Levi har en poäng i vad han säger, har Gunn och Safran fått allt för mycket skit för att dom gjort rent hus?
