Everything we know about SHAZAM! THE FURY OF THE GODS
DC Comics brought Shazam! in their cinematic universe on March 25, 2019. Zachary Levi played the role of the titular hero; he played an adult version of 14-year-old Billy Batson. Every time Billy said “Shazam,” he became that grown-up superhero with speed, strength, and a myriad of other talents. In the first movie, Billy faced and defeated Dr. Sivana. And then each of his siblings received powers, so we hope to see a lot of adorable Shazam! family antics in the suite. This is all we know Shazam! Fury of the gods until now.
What is it about?
We don’t know much about Shazam! Fury of the gods. When Levi and other cast members appeared on DC FanDome in August 2020, they didn’t reveal anything outside of the title. Since Mister Mind, as in the evil worm from the comics, appeared in Shazam!credits, it doesn’t seem unreasonable that he is the enemy. And since Shazam’s family now have special abilities, we’ll surely see them in action. We hope.
Who’s behind the scenes?
David F. Sandberg, who made the first Shazam!, will come back for more. Writer Henry Gayden also returns to the world of Shazam for Fury of the gods.
Who is part of the cast?
Let’s talk about the return of the casting first. Surprisingly, Zachary Levi will be back as Shazam. Asher Angel (Billy Batson), Jack Dylan Grazer (Freddy Freeman), Meagan Good (Super Hero Darla), Faithe Herman (Darla Dudley) and Adam Brody (Super Hero Freddy) will join him. Just like Grace Fulton and Michelle Borth as Mary Bromfield; Ian Chen and Ross Butler as Eugene Choi; Jovan Armand and DJ Cotrona as Pedro Peña. Marta Milans will return as Rosa Vasquez with Cooper Andrews as Victor Vasquez.
Although Warner Bros. has not officially confirmed it, Lucy Liu would apparently join the Shazam! Fury of the gods cast as Kalypso. She’s a villain, just like Helen Mirren. The actor will play Hespera. Mirren shared a statement about the role with Entertainment tonight in March 2021, so we at least know that she is in the movie although we are not sure what the nature of her role is.
When is this going to happen?
Shazam! Fury of the gods is currently scheduled for June 2, 2023. Given how much the pandemic has affected release dates, that could very well change. We will note any changes here.
