SDCC 2022: WATCH: Shazam! Fury of the Gods trailer flies in!

July 23rd, 2022 by Marc Comments

Yes! The trailer is here from SDCC 2022 for Shazam! Fury of the Gods and it’s just as delightful as you hoped it would be.

Original director David F Sandberg returns to direct Zachary Levi as the titular hero along with Adam Brody, Meagan Good, Ross Butler, Zachary Levi, Grace Fulton and DJ Cotrona. as the Shazam! family. This time the heroic team go up against Lucy Liu and Helen Mirren as Herspera and Kalypso, respectively.

On the role, Liu said: “To be apart of the DC universe and this world is probably the most exciting thing that’s happened in my career. Being here as a woman of color, I feel like I’m in a place where I’m home.”

Before the panel, Levi, Asher Angel, Jack Dylan Grazer, Lucy Liu, and David F. Sandberg dropped this cracking little video:

During the Panel Levi was asked if Superman would meet Shazam! to which he replied: “I can neither confirm nor deny allegations such as these, these are not questions you’re allowed to ask me on this stage right now. But no?” 

It’s worth noting he winked on saying this… and he also said he didn’t know if Shazam! and Black adam would fight when the two of them are archenemies and pretty much have to, so…

Levi also said there’s a good chance we’ll get a third Shazam! movie if people go to this new one, a nod to Sandberg saying that, as a sequel, they had more money and spent every cent of it.

From New Line Cinema comes “Shazam! Fury of the Gods,” which continues the story of teenage Billy Batson who, upon reciting the magic word “SHAZAM!,” is transformed into his adult Super Hero alter ego, Shazam. “Shazam!

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
