Shazam! director shares page from new script draft… and it features another DC hero!

August 7th, 2017 by Marc Comments

Man, we all know the Shazam! movie is set to be a light-hearted affair but nothing like this!

Director David F Sandberg has shared what he says is a page from the latest Shazam! script draft (let’s just say we doubt he’s serious) and it’s, well, it’s interesting…

While Billy Batson, the kid who utters the magic word “Shazam!” and becomes the world’s most powerful mortal, isn’t as well known as Clark Kent or Bruce Wayne, he certainly has an awesome back story that, if handled well, could be a big event in the DC Extended Universe.

And the ‘new’ script certainly starts off well featuring Superman.. but quickly descends into, well, we’ll let you read it below.

Let us know what you all think…

One of the most powerful anti-heroes on the planet is coming. And he is coming in hot. Brace yourself for BLACK ADAM! It’s a new dawn.

Had a very cool and strategic meeting with the heads of DC about their entire universe. As a hard core DC fan, to get a real sense of the tonal shifts and developments coming in these future movies has me fired up. Something we, as DC fans have all been waiting for for a very long time. Hope, optimism & FUN. Even when talking about the the most ruthless villain/anti-hero of all time finally coming to life. Prepare yourselves DC Universe.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
