First Full Trailer for DC Superhero Sequel 'Shazam! Fury of the Gods'
"Your world will not survive this!" Warner Bros unveiled in Comic-Con's Saturday Hall H the official trailer for Shazam! Fury of the Gods, the superhero sequel arriving in theaters this December. It was moved up from a 2023 release to land in theaters during the holiday season, which might be the best bet for this one. From New Line Cinema comes Shazam! Fury of the Gods, which continues the story of teenage Billy Batson who, upon reciting the magic word "SHAZAM!," is transformed into his adult Super Hero alter ego, Shazam, played again by Zachary Levi. In this next one he will confront Hespera & Kalypso, daughters of the Greek god Atlas, while introducing us to an entire Shazam! family of (young) heroes. In addition to Levi, the new cast features Helen Mirren as Hespera, Lucy Liu as Kalypso, Rachel Zegler, Meagan Good, Grace Fulton, and Marta Milans; along with Djimon Hounsou, Asher Angel, and Jack Dylan Grazer returning from the first one. So far so good, this is a solid trailer with some good bits from Levi as he figures out his place in the world of superheroes. And the big bad creature is a dragon? Cool let's see how this goes.
