Understandably, everyone has an opinion about Zachary Levi's Shazam! costume. While it's definitely faithful to the comic books, it also sticks out like a sore thumb in the DC Films Universe and the fact it's clearly padded to bulk up the actor wearing it has given the suit something of a comical appearance.
It probably doesn't help that we've only seen set photos as opposed to an official image but the response has been mostly positive and fans are excited to check out the DC Comics adaptation.
However, during a recent live Q&A on Instagram, Levi was asked why he's wearing a "CRAP SUIT" in the upcoming DC Comics adaptation and he then took aim at negative fans bashing his superhero duds.
"'Why the crap suit?' WOW! Okay, well I don't think it's a crap suit. I think my suit is f---in' bomb, to be perfectly honest. I know that there hasn't been an officially released photo yet, but there have been incredibly high quality photos that have been released. And I think any of you people out there who are still hung up on what the suit looks like are just wanting to be angry for angry's sake. I think you're very insecure, you probably are dealing with some stuff in your own life, and you feel a little powerless, and I'm sorry that you do. Wherever you're at and whatever you're going through, I'm sorry that you're going through that.
"But, I do think you should probably take a second and reflect on why you're as negative as you are about maybe anything in life, and then re-look at the suit and go, 'Actually hey, you know what? They're trying really hard to make something that's awesome and that pleases a lot of different people,' because Captain Marvel's been around for a really long time and has had a whole bunch of different iterations of suits. So, you can't win 'em all, but you can at least hope that people will give you a fair shake. For any of you out there that still don't think you've been given a fair shake, and don't wanna give us a fair shake, well then, sucks to your assmar, I don't know what to tell you."
Ouch. Honestly, Levi probably hasn't helped matters with these remarks as they're bound to just make those bashing Shazam! even more enthusiastic to get under the actor's skin! It also seems a little silly to get so defensive about the suit, especially as opinions about it aren't ultimately going to hurt the movie in any way. What do you guys think?
