‘Shazam!’ Director David F. Sandberg Shares His Thoughts On ‘Aquaman’

Aquaman David F Sandberg Shazam DC

Based on the trailer shown at San Diego Comic-Con, coupled with what the director has said since then, David F. Sandberg’s Shazam! film will have Easter eggs galore as far as what’s come before it in the DC Extended Universe, such as the Batarang and the magazine cover describing the Black Zero event in Man of Steel. However, there are also nods to the DC film that will come before it and that’s hitting theaters this weekend — James Wan’s Aquaman. And unlike most of us, Sandberg has had an opportunity to see the film already and recently shared his thoughts.

Taking to his Twitter last night, David F. Sandberg praised James Wan’s DC film, stating “Man, #Aquaman was epic! Some of the most spectacular action and visuals ever!” Here, have a look at Sandberg praising the Aquaman film in the tweet below.

Given how much Sandberg has entertained fans on social media with talk and jokes about Shazam! and mentioning other DC films, and Aquaman’s costume, just to name one, we’ll have to see if there will be direct Aquaman Easter eggs in the Shazam! film and if the events of the Aquaman movie might inform anything in Shazam!, similar to how Suicide Squad references Superman’s death in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, given how both of those were released in the same year and just a few months apart.

But based on Sandberg’s words, does this make you any more excited or interested in the upcoming Aquaman film? And do you hope that there will be any Aquaman-related references or Easter eggs in the Shazam! film? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below and stay tuned for more Shazam! updates.

Aquaman arrives in theaters this Friday. Shazam! will be released in theaters on April 5, 2019.

From Warner Bros. Pictures and director James Wan comes an acition-packed adventure that spans the vast, visually breathtaking underwater world of the seven seas, “Aquaman,” starring Jason Momoa in the title role. The film reveals the origin story of half-human, half-Atlantean Arthur Curry and takes him on the journey of his lifetime—one that will not only force him to face who he really is, but to discover if he is worthy of who he was born to be… a king.

Directed by James Wan, Aquaman stars Jason Momoa as Arthur Curry, Amber Heard as Mera, Willem Dafoe as Vulko, Patrick Wilson as Orm / Ocean Master, Dolph Lundgren as Nereus, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as Black Manta, Nicole Kidman as Atlanna, Ludi Lin as Captain Murk, and Temuera Morrison as Tom Curry.

Aquaman will be released in theaters on December 21, 2018.

Guy mostly into journalism and interested in geek culture. So...why not write about it? Get the best of both worlds that way.

    This sounds great. I won’t be paying for CBS All Access (ridiculous) but I am excited for a new Star Trek and her as a lead & Captain? I’m in.

    What does it mean for her Walking Dead character though? Sign she is going to be killed off?

    • Chris W

      Michelle Yeoh is the captain. Martin-Green will be the 1st officer, or possibly someone of lesser rank as they intend for this show to follow a bit more of the lower ranked officers, as opposed to having the Captain being the main protagonist.

      My impression of what they’re aiming for is kind of like the “lower decks” episode of TNG.

      Yeah that does not sound good for her character…unless she is able to juggle both but that Star Trek role is gonna be a beast. Plus she may have to change up her hairstyle for the Trek role too.

      • Nathan_12thMan

        She could be killed off TWD, they could have different shooting schedules and also she isn’t in that many episodes of TWD anyways.
