Shazam! Fury of the Gods director David F. Sandberg has revealed a promo image that teases Grace Fulton’s Mary Marvel.
2019’s Shazam! was a hit for DC Films, proving to the studio that audiences would show up for lesser-known characters in the franchise. While most superhero films tend to be appropriate for kids, Shazam! managed to carve out a special niche for itself as the go-to family-friendly film. The project touched upon themes such as the importance of family and friends, as well as how adopted families are just as powerful and legitimate as biological ones. On a less sentimental level, the DC film also introduced the Shazam! family, which consisted of Billy Batson’s adopted family. One key introduction in the Shazam! family was Grace Fulton’s Mary Marvel.
In the first film, Mary Marvel was played by Michelle Borth, but seeing as Grace Fulton is already a young adult, Shazam! Fury of the Gods opted to just cast her as the superpowered Mary. In an Instagram post, director David F. Sandberg shared a promo image that teases Fulton’s superhero. The image is a clear play on the WWII poster “We Can Do It!”.

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 Asher Angel and be sure to subscribe to HH’s YouTube channel for more video content.
