Director David F. Sandberg, best known for horror movies Lights Out and Annabelle: Creation, is promising that his Shazam! movie will be one of the more light-hearted DCEU movies.

"The big attraction for me with that character is the fact that every kid dreams of being Superman, right? I mean I certainly did, and (Billy Batson) is a kid that gets that chance," Sandberg tells the Sun. "He gets to become the superhero. So it'll be big with superpowers in a way. In terms of what people can expect, I think this will be one of the more fun or lighthearted movies so far in the DC universe. It certainly will be a departure."

Moving from horror to superheroes shouldn't be too big of a jump for Sandberg, as DC superhero movies still see people dying gruesome deaths.

Shazam! is set to release in 2019.
