After James Wan’s Aquaman, Warner Bros. and DC Films’ next superhero comic book film in line for release is director David F. Sandberg’s Shazam!. Well, with Aquaman already in theatres and Shazam! inching closer to its April 2019 release date, some fans are looking forward to seeing the sequels of the films with the same directors on board. But, unfortunately, neither Wan nor Sandberg has confirmed that they would be back for the sequel of their films.
Recently a fan took to Twitter to express his disappointment over the fact that both Wan and Sandberg have said they’d like to take a break from comic book movies. Sandberg replied back explaining why he is a bit reluctant to return with a sequel.
He compared making comic book movies to running a marathon. He said just like a marathon runner needs some rest after finishing the first marathon and before running another one, the same way a director needs some time to rest after making a big film before taking up another project.
“It’s just that it takes a crazy amount of work to do a movie like this. It’s like asking a runner at the end of a marathon if they feel like doing another one. You need some time to rest and forget how difficult it was,” Sandberg noted on Twitter. You can check out the post below.
Sandberg has been quite active on social media sharing a lot of stuff from Shazam! set. Earlier this month when a fan, who missed CCXP 2018 asked the Shazam! director to share the exclusive clip screened at the event, he shared a clip of himself doing some flying stunts.
When another fan asked Sandberg which will be the first movie he will watch after Shazam! comes out to relax, he replied Avengers: Endgame. He noted that he can’t relax until he learns how Ant-Man escaped the quantum realm.
Shazam! is set to debut in theatres on April 5, 2019.
