New set photos from Shazam! Fury of the Gods united Djimon Hounsou and members of the Marvel family together.

Recently, it was revealed that Academy Award-nominee Djimon Hounsou would be reprising his role as the Wizard in the upcoming DC Extended Universe sequel, Shazam! Fury of the Gods. The actor previously appeared in its 2019 predecessor, in which his Wizard character reluctantly entrusts young Billy Batson (Asher Angel) as the new champion (Zachary Levi) to wield the powers of Shazam when the threat of Doctor Thaddeus Sivana (Mark Strong) became too strong.

Some fans were caught by surprise to see Djimon Hounsou reprise his role in the sequel Shazam! Fury of the Gods, given that the Wizard is shown crumbling into dust after bestowing his powers to Billy. Now, we have an intriguing new look at Djimon Hounsou’s return as the Wizard alongside a few members of the Marvel family. New set photos reveal Grace Fulton, Jovan Armand and Ian Chen alongside the Wizard on horseback.

Here is the official synopsis for the first Shazam! movie:

We all have a superhero inside us, it just takes a bit of magic to bring it out. In Billy Batson’s (Angel) case, by shouting out one word—SHAZAM!—this streetwise 14-year-old foster kid can turn into the adult Super Hero Shazam (Levi), courtesy of an ancient wizard. Still a kid at heart—inside a ripped, godlike body—Shazam revels in this adult version of himself by doing what any teen would do with superpowers: have fun with them! Can he fly? Does he have X-ray vision? Can he shoot lightning out of his hands? Can he skip his social studies test? Shazam sets out to test the limits of his abilities with the joyful recklessness of a child. But he’ll need to master these powers quick.

Directed by David F. Sandberg, Shazam! stars Zachary Levi, Asher Angel, Mark Strong, Jack Dylan Grazer, Grace Fulton, Faithe Herman, Ian Chen, Jovan Armand, Cooper Andrews, Marta Milans, and Djimon Hounsou.

Shazam! is available on Digital HD, 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, and DVD, while Fury of the Gods will hit theaters on June 2, 2023. Keep it locked to Heroic Hollywood for all the latest on the upcoming film and be sure to subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more video content!
