David F. Sandberg Claims People Are Confusing SHAZAM And CAPTAIN MARVEL
As improbable as it may sound, it appears some folks are confusing Shazam and Captain Marvel. Director David F. Sandberg shared on Twitter he was recently approached by someone who thought he was involved in the upcoming Marvel feature with Brie Larson (via Comicbook):
That person had to be trolling. I can see someone accidentally mistaking Shazam as the Captain Marvel movie, but not the other way around. For starters, Nick Fury is literally in the trailer for Captain Marvel, so even if you thought the film was some female-led reboot with a complete costume redesign and different powers, there’s literally a MCU character that would make anyone think twice.
Regardless, it will be interesting to see if any moviegoers do get confused when these films premiere in theaters and ask for their money back. Do you think that will happen?
