DC Comics brought Shazam! into their movie universe on March 25, 2019. Zachary Levi starred as the titular hero; he played an adult version of 14-year-old Billy Batson. Whenever Billy said “Shazam,” he turned into that adult superhero with super speed, strength, and myriad other talents. In the first film, Billy faced and defeated Dr. Sivana. And then each of his siblings received powers, so we hope to see lots of adorable Shazam! family antics in the sequel.
Here’s everything we know about Shazam! Fury of the Gods so far.
Shazam 2 is officially called Shazam! Fury of the Gods.
