This week, Shazam! director David F. Sandberg livened issues up with a viral video hyping up Shazam 2 with some positively actual, by no means hilariously faux Letterboxd evaluations. The video arrives only one week forward of the DC FanDome occasion, which is able to embrace a panel for the already-released Shazam!. Whereas no specifics concerning the panel have been mentioned, it’s very doable we may very well be getting some updates concerning the sequel.
It certain looks as if there’s nothing however the Shazam! sequel on Sandberg’s thoughts with this humorous faux trailer. The director shared the video on Twitter earlier this week, captioning it with this transient explainer: “We haven’t shot Shazam 2 yet but there are already reviews up on Letterboxd. I’m pretty sure that means we’re allowed to start using review quotes for marketing.”
There’s loads of enjoyable stuff packed into the 30-second trailer. Utilizing footage from Shazam!, the faux trailer options “reviews” of the DCEU sequel. This contains the transient however unbelievable evaluation of “I’m fine with this,” from a consumer named Roberto the Particular person and an extended one which reads, “Jack Dylan Grazer, I’m free Thursday night to paint [your] nails and dance in [your] room to Fleetwood Mac,” from consumer Nev. TBH, that is the form of early buzz I’d anticipate for a sequel to the very lighthearted and full of life 2019 DCEU flick starring Grazer and Zachary Levi.
