After the massive success of Aquaman, DC fans now have their eyes set on the next in line release Shazam!. With just a few months remaining for the release, Shazam! is currently going through final post-production work and director David F. Sandberg took to Instagram to share a glimpse of the behind-the-scenes work.
Sandberg, who recently visited a foley recording stage, shared a video of the artists at work. The video clip shows two artists trying to create some sounds using different props.
“It’s my third movie but the first one where I’ve actually had a chance to visit the foley recording stage,” Sandberg noted in the caption. You can check out the video clip below.
The Shazam! director also shared clips of Asher Angel (Billy Batson) and Grace Fulton (Mary Bromfield) recording ADR voice-over work in his recent Instagram Story. You can check out screenshots from the Instagram Story below.
The filmmakers have released a pair of new official stills from Shazam!. The pictures come via the magazine Total Film which has chosen the upcoming DCEU film for its cover story. The first one shows Zachary Levi’s transformed Billy Batson meeting his best friend Freddie Freeman, while the other one shows the hero facing off the film’s central antagonist Doctor Sivana. The magazine has also released its cover page featuring the teenaged superhero.
“The goal is to make Shazam! feel like, in some ways, that fun ’80s movie, like John Hughes or Back to the Future,” Sandberg told the magazine. “It’s just one of those movies that hopefully you’ll want to see over and over again. And also, it takes place at Christmas. It’s one of those where you go, ‘Oh, let’s watch this every Christmas!’ Hopefully.”
When asked if fans can expect Shazam! crossover with other DC superheroes in future, actor Zachary Levi said a crossover would be amazing.
“That would be amazing!” Levi said. “Shazam would fit. The person he’d be closest to is The Flash because of their youth and humor. And we’ve gotta have Shazam and Superman interactions. They’re, like, the same, but totally different…”
Shazam! debuts in theaters on April 5, 2019.
