For fans who loved the first Shazam! Movie, get ready for even more in the sequel Shazam! Fury of the Gods. It is shaping up to be quite the film, and DC is banking on this and Black Adam to get them out of their funk when it comes to cinema.
The trailer made its debut at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, along with a sneak peek of Black Adam. In Fury of the Gods, Billy and his foster siblings are called on again by the wizard, who first gave Billy his powers to stop the Daughters of Atlas. The sisters are hellbent on getting revenge on Billy and his family for supposedly “stealing the power of all the gods.” Helen Mirren and Lucy Liu portray the Goddesses Kalypso and Hespera, known as the “Daughters of Atlas.”
Fans can look forward to more magic and hilarity according to the pretty in-depth trailer set to a killer track, “Business” by Eminem. Billy will also be struggling with the fact he doesn’t feel worthy enough to have these powers, and we see him comparing himself to The Flash, Aquaman, and Batman.
The DCU has been struggling for a while with trying to compete with MCU along with its internal issues with actors. Even though Marvel just announced a massive slate of content coming at their SDCC panel, WB is banking on these following two projects to reboot the DCU possibly.
Will it work? Only time will tell. Shazam! Fury of the Gods hits theaters this Christmas.
