Shazam director David F. Sandberg includes a confusing reaction to a fan edit of his movie that’s going viral on social media marketing. Sandberg introduced the type of Billy Batson (Asher Angel) to the DCEU this past year with Shazam, a humorous and fun film that was a long way off from previous DCEU installments. In Shazam, a historical wizard (Djimon Hounsou) gives young Billy special abilities that may turn him into a grown-up superhero (played by Zachary Levi). While Billy uses his newfound powers for silly initially, childish purposes, he soon finds himself in the center of an extremely real battle contrary to the power-hungry Dr. Sivana (Mark Strong).

While Shazam takes place within the DCEU, it largely operates as its adventure. Billy’s foster brother Freddy (Jack Dylan Grazer) is really a big fan of superheroes like Batman and Aquaman, so it is acknowledged they exist in this world. Additionally, the final scene of the movie sees Billy (in his adult form) bringing Superman in to the school cafeteria to possess lunch with Freddy. However, Superman’s face is never seen, which disappointed some fans who wanted a genuine cameo from Henry Cavill. Actually, a lot of people reached out to Sandberg concerning this he edited Cavill in himself to hilarious (and disturbing) effect.
Recently, a fan’s upcoming edit of Shazam has gained attention on social media marketing. Essentially, this new cut will seek to include a darker tone to the lighter Shazam, while removing a few of the humor also. Additionally, it’ll connect to Suicide Squad, complete Cavill’s cameo, and add additional music and scenes. In short, it will likely be Shazam as though Zack Snyder managed to get. The creator of the cut, referred to as Ronnie OG, announced on social media marketing that it’ll be on July 20. In response, Sandberg posted a GIF of a female driving a car who, when adjusting the trunk view mirror, discovers an other woman sitting in her backseat. It could be seen by you in the area below.
Obviously, it is a confusing response rather. Is Sandberg indicating he’s been caught off-guard by this new fan cut? Or is he simply suggesting he’s watching the progress of the cut from afar? Fan edits of movies aren’t anything new, though this Shazam edit has gotten significant attention due to its need to fit the film in with all of those other DCEU. The first DCEU installments developed by Snyder were darker and grittier, and Shazam, while containing some very emotional moments, is quite different.
Many is going to be curious to see if Sandberg comments any more about this Shazam fan edit, once it becomes designed for visitors to watch especially. Sandberg might not have much fascination with it, since he’s already made his movie and he’s pleased with it. He’ll go back to direct Shazam 2, that is currently slated for release in November 2022. Shazam 2 will probably have exactly the same humorous vibe because the first installment, making sense when one remembers the primary character is really a teenager. Still, some may be curious to see just what a darker Shazam appears like; they’ll have to monitor the fan edit.
