DC’s Shazam! director David F. Sandberg talks about his character’s place in the DCEU as rumors of next year’s JL line-up continue to swirl.

Sandberg’s first venture into the DC Extended Universe tied for last year’s top spot at the global box office, earning a total of $652 million over its course of three weeks in theaters: domestically, it finished fifth; globally, it was fourth on the list.

The superhero team-up actioner featured Henry Cavill and Ben Affleck reprising their roles as Superman and Batman respectively after they had already appeared in Dawn of Justice (2016) and Suicide Squad (2016).

A rumor has been circulating for several weeks about the potential future of the Justice League in the DC Extended Universe.

The current line-up, as established in Zack Snyder’s Justice League, comprises Superman (Henry Cavill), Batman (Ben Affleck), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), The Flash (Ezra Miller), and Cyborg (Ray Fisher).

This team is expected to return beyond 2022’s The Flash, while the other three members are uncertain about their continued involvement.

Sandberg posted on Twitter stating that he has no idea Shazam might be part of the next Justice League and clarified in his tweet stating that he has not “watched/read the script” of The Flash.

Sandberg may know when he’s going to be filming Black Adam, but what he doesn’t know is whether Shazam will play a role in The Flash or not. Another commenter has also pointed out that since Sandberg does not actually work for Warner Bros., there’s no way a casting announcement about his character would have leaked his involvement with any upcoming DC Comics film.
