SHAZAM! ALMOST FEATURED A FRANKENSTEIN CARTOON

Posted on: May 30th, 2019

David F. Sandberg (Lights Out, Annabelle: Creation) got his start in horror, and he certainly offered a few fun nods to the genre in his comedic superhero movie Shazam! But on his Instagram this week, the director revealed that the film almost featured a Frankenstein cartoon, voiced by Sandberg himself.

“For a deleted scene in Shazam, there was supposed to be a bad cartoon playing on a tv in the background,” Sandberg wrote. “I of course saw it as a chance to animate and do dumb voices myself. This is how far I got before we decided to cut the scene. Animated in Moho. “

The incomplete cartoon sees a young Frankenstein’s monster lamenting to his father, Victor Frankenstein, that he can’t go to prom because of the way he looks.

“It was an alternate ending to be used if a certain faceless cameo didn’t work out,” Sandberg responded when a fan asked why the scene was cut. “It should be among the deleted scenes on the Blu-ray.”
