‘James Gunn’s wife is the new Shazam’: Nepotism Debate in DCU Rages on as Gunn Casts Wife Jennifer Holland in the Most Unnecessary Shazam 2 Appearance

'James Gunn's wife is the new Shazam': Nepotism Debate in DCU Rages on as Gunn Casts Wife Jennifer Holland in the Most Unnecessary Shazam 2 Appearance

James Gunn has been facing a lot of hate for the decisions that are being made in the DC Universe. He has already let go of Henry Cavill, and things are pretty dicey with Gal Gadot and Dwayne Johnson. He has recently been on the wrong side of the gun for his actions supporting nepotism. Especially considering how he has been pitching for his wife to cameo in future DCU projects.

Celebrities have been embracing and taking advantage of nepotism for years now. This has often led to other people missing out on opportunities because of what influence famous people might already have established. Something similar is being done by Gunn as he tries to put the spotlight on his wife who has nothing to do with the franchise in itself.

James Gunn Adds Jennifer Holland’s Cameo In Shazam! Fury of the Gods

James Gunn has reportedly added his wife Jennifer Holland for a cameo in Zachary Levi’s Shazam! Fury of the Gods. The response that the audience gave has been absolutely opposite of what the CEO of DC Films would have liked. While it is still unclear as to what exactly her role would be in the movie, fans are not happy with her being a part of the franchise at all.

Fans have been speculating about why her role is being made such a prominent part of the DCU. It is highly argued whether or not it is the right decision to bring Holland for a cameo as it promotes nepotism. Nepotism is something the audience has been trying to fight against for a while now, so to see Gunn work towards it has not given him the kindest response.

Jennifer Holland is being heavily mocked for her upcoming cameo in Shazam! Fury of the Gods and fans have been deeming her role to be something huge or absolutely unimportant. They have even wondered whether her character from The Suicide Squad and Peacemaker is necessarily as important as Gunn is making it out to be.

Fans are standing against nepotism and how it affects cinema in itself but while doing so, they are trolling Holland and Gunn for following in its path. The audience has been saying that she could even play the next Shazam if given the opportunity by her husband.

Shazam! Fury of the Gods will be available to watch in theatres from 17th March 2023.
