Earlier today, Shazam! director David F. Sandberg answered fans frustrated with the fact that there hasn't been a new trailer for the movie yet. When one fan pointed that Aquaman had multiple trailers by this time in its release schedule, Aquaman director James Wan stepped in and came to Sandberg's defense.
Wan recalled that, before Aquaman became the biggest DC movie ever, people were also making similar comments about the film. Wan pointed out that when Warner Bros. waited until Comic-Con International in San Diego to release the trailer, "people freaked out." He also brought up the negative response when Aquaman's release date was moved from October to December.
(When the trailers/extended one finally arrived, everyone was like, “Oh, now you’re showing too much...We’ve seen the whole movie.” lol)@ponysmasher Best thing you can do is ignore all the noise and distraction, and focus on your project and do your best. That’s all you can do.— James Wan (@creepypuppet) February 20, 2019
Wan made it clear that this is a no-win situation because Aquaman was accused of "showing too much," while Shazam! is accused of not showing enough. "Best thing you can do is ignore all the noise and distraction, and focus on your project and do your best," Wan finished. "That’s all you can do."
