Shazam! writer Henry Gayden reminisced about the day they filmed the Peter Parker dance scene when he was an assistant on Spider-Man 3.
Shazam! is one of the most light-hearted movies to come out of the DC Extended Universe and has a tone very similar to Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy. As it turns out, Shazam! writer Henry Gayden served as an assistant on Spider-Man 3 back in 2007.
Gayden is currently developing a Shazam! sequel, but took the time on Twitter to reminisce about one day in particular when he worked on Spider-Man 3. This all started after Gayden came across old papers from the day they filmed the scene in Spider-Man 3 when Peter Parker dances down the street:
Years ago, I was lucky enough to be an assistant on Spider-man 3 (2007), which means I sometimes come across old papers like this: the exact date and time “Cool” Peter Parker trucked down the sidewalk, fingerguns ablaze https://t.co/YWtQgbrTES pic.twitter.com/pAPQFthTV4

Here is the official synopsis for Shazam!:
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, the film 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.
