Shazam! Shazam! Fury of the Gods seems to have confused many viewers with the surprise of Gal Gadot’s return to the role of Wonder Woman.

The character appears towards the end of the film, as Wonder Woman tries to resurrect Shazam, since he is the only person left with godlike powers. But observing the scene, many said that Gadot’s face was “worn” on the body of another actor using deepfake technology, but the director of the film claimed the exact opposite.

“A certain scene in ‘Shazam! Wrath of the Gods’ was supposed to be shot in England but I couldn’t go due to a visa issue so I directed remotely,” the film’s director David F. Sandberg wrote on Twitter. , while sharing a video of himself remotely directing Gadot’s scene. “It was not a deepfake as some believe.”

Gadot is clearly seen on one of Sandberg’s computer screens as she directs the film, ending any speculation that she was edited into the film using deepfake technology. The rumor was fueled by the “Shazam 2” photos featuring Taylor Cahill as Wonder Woman. The images led many to believe that it was Cahill who acted in the “Shazam 2” scene and not Gadot.

“We shot the scene with Taylor to figure out what coverage we needed next with Gal since she couldn’t come to Atlanta,” Sandberg tweeted. “There is absolutely no deepfaking. When you see Gal it’s 100% her.”
