He may have found his family, but things aren’t looking up for Billy Watson based on the new trailer for this Spring’s Shazam! Fury of the Gods.
As with the first movie, Shazam! Fury of the Gods is directed by David F. Sandberg, from a screenplay by Henry Gayden — who wrote the first installment — with The Fast & The Furious franchise screenwriter Chris Morgan also signing on for this new chapter.
Asher Angel and Zachary Levi return for the dual role of Billy Batson/Shazam in the new movie, alongside the Shazamily — Jack Dylan Grazer, Adam Brody, Grace Fulton, Ross Butler, Ian Chen, DJ Cotrona, Jovan Armand, Meagan Good, and Faith Herman — and Dijon Hounsou as the Wizard Shazam. (Michelle Borth, who played the superhero Mary in the first movie has been replaced by Fulton, playing both the regular and powered Mary.) The villains of the piece include Helen Mirren, Lucy Liu, and Rachel Ziegler, each playing relatives of Atlas, one of the gods from whom Shazam gains his powers… although they’re not too happy about that last part.
Ahead of today’s trailer debut, the movie also released a new poster this week:
One of the final movies from the current incarnation of the DC movie continuity, Shazam! Fury of the Gods is set for release March 17. If you’re wanting to keep track of all the superhero movies out this year, we can help with that.
Revisit the first trailer for the movie, as debuted at last year’s Comic-Con international at San Diego.
