shazam actor

Superheroes often have to balance alter egos — the face they show to the public, and the facade they fight evil with in order to protect their loved ones. It’s a fascinating Jekyll and Hyde dynamic that goes on almost every superhero — except for the majority of the Avengers, who fight with their identities out in broad daylight.

But what if a superhero literally had two personas, split between their public identity and their heroic one?

Sandberg, the director of Shazam!, which will be the next DC Films movie to start filming, has doubled down on that mentality, describing his upcoming movie as “fun” and “lighthearted”.

Even Wonder Woman, which was far more upbeat than the dark and dour Man of SteelBatman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and Suicide Squad, had real some heavy moments in it, so Shazam sounds like it might be the biggest variation we’ve seen in the DCEU yet.
