Check out the new trailer for Shazam 2:
In the film’s never-before-seen scenes, we see teenager Billy Batson and his family once again in trouble. Now, the boy who, by saying “Shazam”, becomes the powerful and clumsy hero, needs to stop the threats of new dangerous villains, called Daughters of Atlas, who intend to steal the powers of Billy and his brothers and sisters, who also acquired skills.
In the new trailer, the highlight is the fight scenes against a dragon that is controlled by Lucy Liu’s character. The humorous tone of the film even leaves room for a reference to Game of Thrones, also from Warner, when the hero calls the villain Khaleesi. Will the antagonist be as memorable as Daenerys Targaryen?
Shazam 2 cast and details
The trio of bad girls from Shazam 2 is formed by actresses Helen Mirren, Lucy Liu and Rachel Zegler, who interpret the goddesses Hespera, Calypso and Antaeus, respectively. Remembering that none of them were present in the first film of the DC character.
In addition to them, the main cast of Shazam! Gods Fury features Zachary Levi, who brings the titular hero to life, Grace Caroline Currey, Adam Brody, Meagan Good, Jack Dylan Grazer, Diedrich Bader, Djimon Hounsou, Ross Butler, Asher Angel, among others.
As revealed at Comic-Con 2022, Shazam 2 will have a small time jump and show the young heroes a little older. However, in addition to fighting villains, they still have to learn to balance their dual lives. After all, it’s not easy being a hero and, at the same time, a young man who needs to study, work and find his place in the world.

Fortunately, Shazam 2 was one of the films that was maintained by the duo Peter Safran and James Gunn, who took over the head of DC studios. However, the hero’s future is still uncertain, as well as that of everyone else in the brand since they appeared on big screens and small screens. Everything will depend on the planning of the executives, who are still finding ways to rebuild the DC Cinematic Universe (DCU).
Do we have one Shazam 3? Until then, we look forward to the release of Gods Furyin March!
