Zachary Levi Teases Awesome Shazam! Fury of the wicked gods
Production is officially over on the sequel to DCEU Shazam! The fury of the gods, and director David F. Sandberg has plenty of time to polish the film in post-production, with Zachary Levi’s return as the main hero not set to hit theaters until June 2, 2023.
The first installment has been one of the nicest superhero surprises in years, shedding the shackles of the comic book franchise’s dark, drab aesthetic to deliver a light, airy, and fun caper that was a cross between a show based on standard effects and a coming-of-age comedy body-swap.
Shazam! remains the highest grossing entry in DCEU history after making $ 366 million at the box office on a budget well under $ 100 million, while it also garnered some of Warner’s strongest reviews Bros. ‘ the universe has never seen. The pressure is therefore strong for the next chapter, but the new additions to the distribution are more than capable of delivering the goods.
Helen Mirren and Lucy Liu will play Hespera and Kalypso respectively, two daughters of Atlas with an ax to beat against Billy Batson’s alter ego. In a new interview, Levi could barely contain his excitement about getting down to business with the Shazam! new arrivals.
“Now we have these awesome villains in Helen Mirren and Lucy Liu, who by the way are so badass let me tell you. I can die as a happy man, I was able to do one-on-one scenes with Helen Mirren. It was so crazy! Well unfortunately Lucy and I don’t want to spoil anything but, we are enemies who surround us a lot but don’t have a lot of face to face time. But we have some, we’ll see how it goes.
You know they’re talented because you can see what they’ve done in the past and their work, but you don’t necessarily know if they’ll just be groovy people who are just like rolling their sleeves up, and be creative. , Have fun. And she was, and Helen was, and Rachel Zegler, who was also a new addition to the movie, everyone coming back already, we already had such a beautiful thing, and then these new additions made it even more. groovy.

Shazam! The fury of the gods lost the element of surprise its predecessor had, so the stakes were raised for Sandberg and his team to ensure they meet the dramatically increased expectations. Looking at how the first game went, there’s no reason to bet against them, especially when several screen heavyweights were drafted for the second outing.
