Shazam director David F. Sandberg, went on to the DC Cinematic Reddit forum to comment on a thread on the type of humor the movie will have. Sandberg went on to clarify that the humor in the movie will come from the situation than quippy one-liners.
He goes on to say that it’s important for him to mix funny serious and dramatic moments.
I think it’s very funny but the humor comes more from the situations rather than quippy one-liners (for people who read too much into things, that’s not intended as a dig at Marvel or anyone in particular. Quippy one-liners can be great).
The important thing for me is to mix the funny with a threat that’s serious and to also have dramatic moments. All funny all the time takes the weight out of it.
Shazam to start filming sometime next month and is set to open on April 5, 2019.
