Hide your eyes! It’s not safe out there anymore. Spoilers are everywhere. They are even in official marketing these days. A recently released Shazam! Fury of the Gods TV spot trailer went ahead and dropped a huge spoiler for the movie, revealing a major DC character cameo from the film. If you want to remain in the realm of the blessedly unaware, then look away now. Otherwise, check out the surprise cameo in Shazam‘s upcoming sequel below.
“Oh my god.” That’s how we feel. Although rumors of Wonder Woman appearing in Shazam! Fury of the Gods have circulated for a while, this TV spot trailer inclusion still feels egregious. After all, most likely, a majority of the audience wouldn’t have heard these kinds of whispers. And even if they had, an element of surprise would still remain in play. Simply placing the Wonder Woman cameo so overtly in a Shazam! trailer seems to take away a great deal of the fun.
Director David F. Sandberg didn’t seem thrilled with the reveal either. He tweeted, “Well, there’s some big Shazam spoilers out there now. If you want to go in fresh, maybe don’t be online or watch tv with ads… Pretty good advice in general, actually.”
Good advice for life, but a bit hard to achieve. Happily, although we now know Wonder Woman will definitely cameo in Shazam! Fury of the Gods, the trailer didn’t disclose too much about the how or the why of her visit. Neither Shazam nor Wonder Woman’s future in the new DCU under James Gunn and Peter Safran is exactly clear to us. So this movie may prove important for both of these characters, at least as far as these specific iterations of them go.
Shazam, Wonder Woman, and the rest return to our screens on March 17 when Shazam! Fury of the Gods releases in theaters.
