SHAZAM! FURY OF THE GODS Director Responds To Claims The Sequel Is Undergoing A New Round Of Reshoots

Shazam! Fury of the Gods director David F. Sandberg has responded to claims the sequel is being retooled in the wake of a release date delay that's seen the movie pushed into 2023. Read on for details...

Shazam! Fury of the Gods is a movie that's jumped all over the release calendar. After shooting kicked off last May, the sequel was originally set to arrive in theaters on April 1, 2022. It was then pushed back to this November before slipping all the way to June 2, 2023 (not the greatest idea when those kid actors are very quickly growing up). 

Fans were initially pleased when the Shazam! follow-up was brought forward to December 21, later this year, only for the release date to change again when it took Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom's March 17, 2023 slot. 

Inevitably, some fans have questioned whether there may be some issues with Shazam! Fury of the Gods. In fact, there have been rumblings that the new regime at Warner Bros. Discovery has ordered a fresh round of reshoots. That, however, was recently debunked by director David F. Sandberg.

"I've seen reports that Shazam is being 'retooled' but it's not true. The cut has been locked for quite some time and we're doing final mix, color, and VFX right now," the filmmaker confirmed. "Everyone is happy with the film and we're not going to work longer on it just because of the release date shift."

Explaining that change, Sandberg would go on to say, "They figured Aqauaman's previous date was better for us and that's the reason we moved. Definitely not shooting more."

While disappointing for fans, Shazam! Fury of the Gods' move was what was best for business. The movie would have found itself battling Avatar: The Way of Water, likely crushing its chances of being a box office success (especially as that long-awaited sequel would have priority access to IMAX screens, for example).
