Shazam!: Fury of the Gods director David F. Sandberg trolled fans with the last page of the script for the upcoming DC sequel.
With Shazam!: Fury of the Gods heading into production this year, director David F Sandberg had an excellent way of trolling fans on Reddit with a supposed look at the final page of the script. The upcoming sequel has been in the headlines recently after both Helen Mirren and Lucy Liu have joined the cast of the Zachary Levi film. But will it end with a classic line that the internet has joked about for years? Probably not.
The Shazam! video was posted by David F Sandberg on Reddit with an eye-catching title that was sure to grab the attention of DC fans. It shows an unknown person (most likely Sandberg himself) running through the production office of the film and finding the sequel’s script and flipping right to the end. The dialogue suggests the super family end up in the Hall of Justice and find “Batman’s dusty cowl,” before Billy Batson jokes that “the real Justice League was the friends we made along the way.” It’s a good trolling effort from the director, but that line should stay in the film if you ask us.
What do you make of the fake page for Shazam!: Fury of the Gods? Do you think David F Sandberg should keep the line in the film somewhere? Sound-off in the comments below!
Here is the official synopsis for the Shazam! movie:
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 quick.
Directed by David F Sandberg, Shazam! stars Zachary Levi, Asher Angel, Mark Strong, Jack Dylan Grazer, Grace Fulton, Faithe Herman, Ian Chen, Jovan Armand, Cooper Andrews, Marta Milans, and Djimon Hounsou.
Shazam! is now available on Digital HD, 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, and DVD. Stay tuned for all the latest news regarding David F Sandberg and Shazam!: Fury of the Gods, and be sure to subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more original video content!
