With three DC Extended Universe now in production including Andy Muschietti’s The Flash and Jaume Collet-Serra’s Black Adam, it’s certainly an exciting time to be a fan. Are you excited to see Zachary Levi reprise his titular role in Shazam!: Fury of the Gods? Sound off in the comments below.
Shazam!: Fury of the Gods is once again directed by David F. Sandberg and will feature the return of much of the original film’s cast and will introduce Helen Mirren as Hespera, Lucy Liu as Kalypso and West Side Story (2021) actress Rachel Zegler to the DCEU. Shazam!: Fury of the Gods will soar into theaters on June 2, 2023.
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 now available on Digital HD, 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, and DVD. Be sure to subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more original video content!
