DC’s most lovable superhero returned to San Diego Comic-Con to present his sequel. Zachary Levi was very well accompanied at the ‘Shazam! Fury of the Gods’ by director David F. Sandberg, who also directed the first installment, and by actors Jack Dylan Grazer and Asher Angel, who return as Freddy Freeman and Billy Watson, as well as Lucy Liu, a great addition like Kalypso. All of them were in charge of revealing the trailer of the film:
In ‘Shazam! The fury of the gods ‘will see Billy with a certain inferiority complex because he does not consider himself as cool as the other superheroes. But soon he will have to face a series of gods, such as Hespera, Helen Mirren’s character, who connected to the panel via Zoom and applauded a greater presence of female characters in the film with a great “pussy power!”. Rachel Zegler, who is shooting the prequel to ‘The Hunger Games’, also connected via Zoom.

Billy Batson will not be alone this time, as will have his “Shazamilia” by his side, which were introduced at the end of the first film. The film, they explained at the panel, will focus on the fact that Billy is afraid of not fitting in with them and losing them along the way. We finally see in the trailer the comment on ‘Fast & Furious’ that the protagonist makes to the character of Helen Mirren, an actress who is part of the action saga.
Black Adam? Henry Cavill? ‘Shazam! 3’?
In the question and answer section of the panel, poor Zachary Levi had to dodge the main doubts of the fans: will Shazam ever face Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam? Will there be a cameo of Henry Cavill’s Superman? Will there be a third part? The actor could not answer any of them, but about another possible sequel he sent a message to the public: “If you go to see it, surely the bosses will want to do another“. ‘Shazam!’ It gave the surprise in 2019 raising more than 360 million dollars at the world box office, which served to receive a larger budget, which the director assures that “they have spent everything”.
‘Shazam! The fury of the gods’ will premiere in theaters December 21.
