Shazam! director David F. Sandberg has been doing his research in preparing to helm the upcoming DC film. And with this clip he shared on his Instagram, we might see a familiar face in the movie.
The clip begins with an animated scene in which Billy Batson is knocked out, and Batman comes to check on him. When Batson comes to, he says “Shazam!” and Batman is blown back. Immediately, Ben Affleck then wakes up from his nightmare, as footage from Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice is edited in. Could this be a hint? Check out for yourself in the video below.

Shazam is a DC Comics character who first debuted in 1939 with the original name of Captain Marvel. Created by C.C. Beck and writer Bill Parker, the character was first published by Fawcett Comics. Shazam himself is the alter-ego of teenager Billy Batson who has the ability to say the word “Shazam,” and transform into an adult superhero with the power of six mythological gods after saying the word.
The film stars Zachary Levi as the titular superhero, Asher Angel as Billy Batson, Grace Fulton, and Mark Strong as Doctor Sivana.
