Superman didn’t expect much from Shazam director

When there is a sudden power outage at home Shazam!Wrath of the Gods Director David F. Sandberg, who believes now is the perfect time for fans to ask him all kinds of questions on Instagram, answers them in a series of Instagram Stories.

Given how Zack Snyder’s most ardent fans reacted to Matt Reeves, director David Sandberg might be wise to avoid high-profile productions like Superman Batman Actor Robert Pattinson replaced Ben Affleck as the Caped Crusader.Dealing with the inevitable online rhetoric surrounding the movie will be a headache as it draws endless comparisons to Snyder man of Steel.

Focusing on less popular characters like Shazam gives Sandberg unlimited freedom in character without angering hornet’s nest fans online. Sadly, though, this potential reaction from these fans makes Sandberg stop wanting to take a crack at Superman. It will be interesting to see the director’s interpretation of Superman.


But fans will have to wait and see Sandberg’s next superhero attempt Shazam!Wrath of the Gods Released on December 16.
