Shades of Henry Cavill returning as Superman in Black Adam!
Warner Bros. has spoiled the Gal Gadot Wonder Woman cameo in Shazam: Fury of the Gods ahead of the movie’s release next week as clear footage of the actress has been released in a new trailer.
Recently saw WB officially release the cast list for the movie where Gal Gadot is not listed as playing Wonder Woman but the official cast lists Taylor Cahill as playing a “Fake Wonder Woman.”
So I along with some other sites ran with it that Gal Gadot is not playing Wonder Woman in the movie, but lo and behold, she does! I still haven’t read the spoilers so I’m not sure where the Fake Wonder Woman comes into play — if that was something maybe meant to throw fans off the scent (then why spoil it?) or if there are two versions of Wonder Woman in the movie (what do I know?).
So following WB officially releasing the cast list with the Fake Wonder Woman, director David F. Sandberg then followed that up by stating he can’t wait for the movie’s release so it can be revealed who is actually in the movie.
Well, WB beat him to the punch and released the Gal Gadot Wonder Woman cameo early. Watch below.
Gal Gadot cameo sounds like Henry Cavill returning as Superman in Black Adam
Regarding comparisons to Henry Cavill returning as Superman in Black Adam, that, too, was spoiled prior to the film’s release, as much like spoiling the Wonder Woman cameo, it was hoped the Cavill post-credit scene in Black Adam would help boost the flick’s box office, which it did not.
So since Shazam: Fury of the Gods is currently predicted to bomb at the box office, we see that’s probably why the Gal Gadot Wonder Woman footage was released ahead of time to try and increase the hype. Funny enough, the footage teases the movie is “full or surprises.”
The first reactions to the movie are praising it so we’ll have to see if the sequel is any good.
Shazam: Fury of the Gods opens March 17 starring Zachary Levi.
