During the Warner Bros. panel at Comic-Con’s Hall H, Zachary Levi along with director David F. Sandberg, and members of the cast: Lucy Liu, Asher Angel and Jack Dylan Grazer was there to discuss Shazam! Fury of the Gods and to unveil the first trailer.
The trailer begins with Shazam in what seems to be a therapy session; he discusses how there are other heroes in the world and how he “doesn’t deserve these powers” (Source: Warner Bros.) This is followed up by scenes of the Shazam Family along with Atlas’ daughters. Hespera and Kalypso are after Shazam; Shazam must focus on saving his family and the world. We also see some of the Shazam Family using their powers.
The sequel will be set a few years after Shazam! and will introduce the Shazam Family as established heroes in the DCEU. The film will center its focus on the Shazam Family. Of course, it will bring back Levi’s character as the main hero for a battle against the villainous daughters of the god Atlas, Hespera and Kalypso.
The core cast and filmmaking team from the original Shazam! will be returning for the sequel. It is set to release December 21, 2022.
