WATCH: Did Shazam! director David F Sandberg tease Batman for the movie?

Oh, isn’t this interesting?

Shazam! director David F Sandberg has shared a clip from Batman/Superman: Publin Enemies on his Instagram page (bottom), featuring Batman meeting young Billy Batson and his later-ego, Shazam!

The full scene in the movie has Batman and Superman fighting Shazam! and Hawkman:

(Continues after clip)

But Sandberg just shared the part of Batman thinking Billy was hurt before meeting Shazam!

And, needless to say, this has the internet pondering what it could mean.

Does this mean Affleck’s Batman will feature in the Shazam! movie? Honestly, we don’t really think so, we just think Sandberg wanted to share a cool Shazam! clip.


Since we know from Batman V Superman, Suicide Squad and Justice League that Batman and Wonder Woman are actively trying to build a superhero team, it’s not impossible that Batman WILL seek out Shazam! in the movie…

Anyway, the clip is cool. Batman is cool. Shazam! is cool and Sandberg is cool. And here they all are together.

Job done.

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….
