“Shazam! Wrath of the Gods” a good movie? The director responds to the critics

When no one praises you, should you praise yourself? Director David F. Sandberg on critics of Shazam, Wrath of the Gods. The DC show was not received as well as the first part, and the creator decided to stand up for himself.

David F. Sandberg is tired of talking about superheroes

It just got the lowest critical rating and highest audience rating on Rotten Tomatoes for the same movieWritten by David F. Sandberg on Twitter, commenting on the row between the press and the public. I didn’t expect a repeat of the success of the first part with critics, but nonetheless I’m a little surprised because I think it’s a good movie. Good.

Right now, the rating for Wrath of the Gods on Rotten Tomatoes is as follows: 53% from critics, 87% from audience. On Filmweb, the discrepancy was slightly smaller and both journalists and viewers had less understanding of Sandberg’s film: the average critics’ rating is 5.0, and the film’s average user rating is 6.2.

Like I’ve been saying for a while now, I’m ready to go back to horror (and try new things). After six years with Shazam, I’m definitely done with superheroesadded the director, whose filmography includes “Lights Out” and “Annabelle: Rise of Evil.”

I couldn’t wait to disconnect from the discussion of superheroes online. So much of it is stressing me out so much that it would be nice not to have to think about it anymoreSandberg concluded. However, the creator added that he does not regret working on two parts of the series “Shazam!” Where he met a number of greats and learned a lot.
