‘It’s not true’: Shazam! Fury of the Gods Director David F. Sandberg Claims Movie Delay is Not Because They are ‘Retooling’ the Sequel

Shazam! Fury of the Gods Movie Delay is Not Because They are 'Retooling' the Sequel

Shazam! The Fury Of Gods movie’s release date had been moved from December 2022 to March 2023 which confused the fans about the reason for doing it. Adding to that, the rumor-mongers spread out the rumors that it was done to add more scenes that have been rejected fully by the director of the movie, David F. Sandberg himself. He took to Instagram and cleared the air in a Q&A session. What caused the delay then?

Shazam! was released in 2019 and got a lot of attention and appreciation because of the story and the characters it had. The main lead, Zachary Levi, who plays the role of an abandoned boy, living in a foster home and still looking for his mother, does a really good job as he can do the role of ‘an adult but a kid at heart and mind’ since that is what his role is required to do.

David F. Sandberg held a Q&A session on Labour Day and one of the fans, who was too curious to know “all about it” asked him about the delay by saying that whether they are retooling the movie. Sandberg agreed to him also seeing these rumors about the movie being ‘retooled’ and said that the movie has been locked for quite some time, meaning that no changes have been made since then and it has been delayed because the studio thought the previous release date for Aquaman and The Lost Kingdom would be suitable for the movie.

The director also added that everyone is happy with the story and work for the movie and all that is left to do is the final mix, color settings, and the VFX, which the studio is working on as we speak. Here is the Q&A session question posed by a fan to which Sandberg replied:

Sandberg himself declared that there is no more shooting going on for Shazam! Fury Of The Gods. He also testified that all these rumors are wrong as claimed by the gossipy people. The movie is complete and is about to release on the 17th of March, 2023.

The supervillains of Shazam! Fury of The Gods will include Lucy Liu’s Kalypso, the daughters of Atlas and Helen Mirren’s Hespera, and the Shazam Team to stop the spread of evil, keeping the peace of their world. The duo personality of Billy Batson is going to amaze the fans with his and his team’s thundering performance!
