Shazam! Fury of the Gods (starring Zachary Levi, Helen Mirren, and Rachel Zegler) hits theaters this weekend. Director David F. Sandberg returns to the show to discuss some behind-the-scenes moments from making the film. We chat about Henry Cavill’s planned cameo in the first film, how his horror movie roots can influence even a big-budget superhero movie, the casting of Rachel Zegler, and more.

Also this week, we have to talk about the Oscars ceremony, one of the absolute best in recent memory. And, of course, we also have to announce this year’s Oscar Wager winner.
