In 2019, Warner Bros. and New Line Films introduced causal comic book movie fans Shazam!, “the most powerful mortal in the world”. The young Billy Batson (Asher Angel) was blessed by the magician Shazam (Djimon Hounsou) and endowed with great powers from seven ancient deities. Now when Billy shouts the word “Shazam!” He transforms into his older self, as portrayed by Zachary Levi. And unlike Shazam’s previous champion Black Adam, Billy realized that his power wasn’t meant for one person. It should be shared.
During the climax battle of the previous film, Billy’s foster brothers and sisters gained power from Shazam and were given older selves as well. That really cemented their bond as a family and created an impressive group of heroes. But with DC FanDome, the sizzling role for the sequel, Shazam! Anger of the gods, offered a glimpse into the villains who can rival Billy’s newly found superfamily.
Shazam’s infinite stamina and endurance come from the legendary Titan Atlas. Perhaps Atlas’s daughters, Hespera (Helen Mirren) and Kalypso (Lucy Liu), have targeted the Shazam family. Remember, Hespera and Calypso are literal goddesses. The kids may be superheroes, but they just can’t match those powers.
Rachel Zegler also plays one of Atlas’ daughters in the film, but it’s unclear whether she will side with her sisters or go against them and help the Shazam family in their struggle. The sizzling roll also featured some of the locations that will be featured in the film, including stops in Athens and even on Mount Olympus. Some very familiar looking monsters also appear.
Grace Fulton’s Mary Bromfield is unique among Billy’s foster siblings in that her adult incarnation is also portrayed by Bromfield. This may be because Mary is actually an adult now, unlike her brothers and sisters. Jack Dylan Grazer is also back as Frederick “Freddy” Freeman, with Adam Brody as his older self.
Faithe Herman will repeat her role as Darla Dudley, with Meagan Good as the older Darla; alongside Ian Chen as Eugene Choi and Jovan Armand as Pedro Peña. Ross Butler and DJ Cotrona portray the adult versions of Eugene and Jovan, respectively.
David F. Sandberg returned as a director Shazam! Anger of the gods, based on a script by Henry Gayden. It will hit theaters on June 2, 2023.
