Shazam! Fury of the Gods Director Shows Screen X Version of the Film
David F. Sandberg teases the upcoming Shazam! sequel, arriving in theaters on Mar. 17.
The premiere of Shazam! Fury of the Gods is only days away, and its director David F. Sandberg weighs in on the latest details. Announced in 2019, shortly after the successful premiere of the first entry, this new film will follow the adventures of Asher Angel’s Billy Batson and his super-powered alter ego, who will now have the help of his heroic family to fight against evil.
After defeating the ambitious and evil Doctor Sivana, the film will confront the protagonists with a gigantic threat. The daughters of Atlas, Hespera, Kalypso, and Anthea will come to reclaim the power that was taken from them and destroy everything and everyone who stands in their way.
Helen Mirren, Lucy Liu, and Rachel Zegler will be in charge of giving life to the villains, being the great additions to the franchise for this long-awaited sequel, which will also feature the returns of Jack Dylan Grazer and Adam Brody as Freddy; Faithe Herman and Meagan Good as Darla; Ian Chen and Ross Butler as Eugene; Grace Caroline Currey as Maria; Jovan Arman and D.J. Chair like Pedro; Marta Milans and Cooper Andrews.
Fury of the Gods will be the first of four films that DC Comics and Warner Discovery will bring to theaters in 2023, along with The Flash, Blue Beetle, and Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom. Considering that it could be the last adventure of The World’s Mightiest Mortal because of James Gunn’s new strategy and with the Ezra Miller’s starring film working as a reboot, Sandberg wants the sequel to be a truly epic and unforgettable adventure.
