Shazam! Fury of the Gods won’t be released on December 16, 2022, as originally planned, but the good news is that fans won’t have to wait much longer. Warner Bros. announced today that the film’s new date is December 21, 2022. The delay is just five days, but it will make sure the DC superhero flick doesn’t go directly up against Avatar 2 anymore.
Shazam! Fury of the Gods will feature the return of Asher Angel and Zachary Levi as they reprise their respective roles as Billy Batson and Shazam. Joining them are most of the first film’s main cast, including Jack Dylan Grazer and Adam Brody as Freddy; Faithe Herman and Meagan Good as Darla; Ian Chen and Ross Bulter as Eugene; Grace Fulton as Mary; Jovan Arman and D.J. Cotrona as Pedro; Marta Milans, and Cooper Andrews.
After defeating Sivana and the Seven Deadly Sins in the 2019 film, the sequel will see the Shazam family going up against much more dangerous threats, with the introductions of the daughters of Atlas, Hespera, and Kalypso, who are set to be portrayed by Oscar winner Helen Mirren and Kill Bill actress Lucy Liu. West Side Story star Rachel Zeigler has also been cast for an undisclosed key role.
Shazam! Fury of the Gods is once again being directed by David F. Sandberg (Annabelle: Creation) from a screenplay written by returning scribe Henry Gayden. It will be produced by Peter Safran.
