Anabelle: Creation composer Benjamin Wallfisch has been tapped to score Shazam! making this his third collaboration with director David F. Sandberg.
In addition to having scored Anabelle: Creation, Wallfisch had previously worked with Sandberg on his feature film directorial debut, Lights Out. This should certainly excite fans, as it shows that Warner Bros. and DC are allowing Sandberg to use crew members that he has previously worked with.
Both Lights Out and the Anabelle prequel were received very well critically — especially as horror movies do not tend to receive critical acclaim — so if this is any indication that the crew behind those films will be returning, then this might be the renaissance that the Worlds of DC films have needed for a while.
Are you excited to hear Wallfisch’s score? Sound off with your thoughts and comments below!
Directed by David F. Sandberg, Shazam! stars Zachary Levi, Asher Angel, Grace Fulton, Jack Dylan Grazer, Cooper Andrews, Marta Milans, Faithe Herman, Ian Chen, Jovan Armand and Mark Strong as Doctor Sivana. Here’s the official synopsis:
“We all have a superhero inside us, it just takes a bit of magic to bring it out. In Billy Batson’s (Angel) case, by shouting out one word—SHAZAM!—this streetwise 14-year-old foster kid can turn into the adult Super Hero Shazam (Levi), courtesy of an ancient wizard. Still a kid at heart—inside a ripped, godlike body—Shazam revels in this adult version of himself by doing what any teen would do with superpowers: have fun with them! Can he fly? Does he have X-ray vision? Can he shoot lightning out of his hands? Can he skip his social studies test? Shazam sets out to test the limits of his abilities with the joyful recklessness of a child. But he’ll need to master these powers quickly in order to fight the deadly forces of evil controlled by Dr. Thaddeus Sivana (Strong).”
Shazam! is scheduled to be released in theaters on April 5, 2019.

Thanos may have made half the universe disappear in Avengers: Infinity War, but the film still has nothing on Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy.
