Shazam! Fury of the Gods director reveals the ‘really good’ scene he didn’t want to cut

Shazam! Fury of the Gods‘ director has opened up on the “really good” scene he was disappointed to leave on the cutting room floor.

Speaking exclusively to TechRadar ahead of the DC Extended Universe (DCEU) film’s release, David F. Sandberg explained that a scene starring Mary Bromfield (Grace Caroline Currey) is the one he was most reluctant to remove from the final cut.

The sequence, which sees Mary delivering take-out food orders as her superpowered alter-ego, would have tied into Shazam! 2‘s exploration of teenagers missing out on major life experiences due to other commitments. It’s a key theme we picked up on in our Shazam! Fury of the Gods review, and one that affects Mary and Freddy Freeman (Jack Dylan Grazer) more than most in the movie.

“There’s going to be, like, half an hour’s worth of deleted and alternate scenes on the Blu-Ray,” Sandberg said. “But the main one I kind of missed [not including] was a scene with Mary. She’s like a Postmates driver but she doesn’t drive – she uses her super speed and flying powers to get around.
