"Batman" helmer eyeing "Shazam!"

"Batman" helmer eyeing "Shazam!"

Director Sandy Collora, who won raves for her short film “Batman : Dead End” is keen on directing superhero flick “Shazam”. The Director tells Superhero Hype, “It’s pretty rare when a script captures my imagination and inspires me so much…Shazam! By William Goldman is just such a script, but it’s something more… A lot more. Captain Marvel is one of my favorite superheroes. I’ve always been drawn to him because Billy Batson was like every fifteen-year-old boy I knew… he was like me. The only difference is Billy Batson was given the power of being the mightiest hero in the world, something every young boy hopes to be in one way or another. But, as so eloquently put in another of my favorite comic book movies; "With great power, comes great responsibility." After the reality of being Captain Marvel has manifested itself in his psyche, Billy is faced with a dilemma that is played out impeccably in this script. Goldman has truly captured the spirit of Billy Batson’s plight, both as Captain Marvel, and as a fifteen-year-old boy trying to figure out his place in the world. I had always hoped that someday, someone would make a Shazam! Movie, now I sincerely hope with every fiber of my being, that someone will be me.” Good Luck Sandy!
