What We Know About Shazam 2 & His DCU Future

Zachary Levi in Shazam Fury of the Gods

Shazam! Fury of the Gods will pick up a few years after its predecessor as Asher Angel’s Billy Batson and his foster family as their lives of being superheroes pits them against the Daughters of Atlas, who are seeking to acquire a weapon that could destroy the world. Levi and Angel are returning to lead the cast alongside fellow DCU vets Jack Dylan Grazer, Adam Brody, Ross Butler, Ian Chen, Faithe Herman, Meagan Good, Djimon Hounsou, Grace Fulton, Jovan Armand, D.J. Cotrona, Marta Milans, Cooper Andrews and Rizwan Manji. Shazam! Fury of the Gods will also see the franchise debuts of Zegler, Liu and Mirren as the Daughters of Atlas, with the former teased as a potential love interest for Grazer’s Freddy Freeman.

Unlike its predecessor, Shazam! Fury of the Gods comes as the DCU finds itself in the middle of a major upheaval, with The Suicide Squad‘s James Gunn and producer Peter Safran now set as DC Studios and scrapping Henry Cavill’s Superman return plans, Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman 3 and Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam future. Levi has remained confident in his DCU future as Shazam, stating that while both Gunn and Safran could ultimately decide to go a different route in their 10-year plan, he believes he’s in a “pretty good position.” Given early plans for the franchise formerly known as the DC Extended Universe was leading up to a showdown between Shazam and Black Adam, Johnson’s exit has closed the door on that path.

While the two Shazam-based characters may no longer come to blows in the future, the first Shazam! movie did tease a conflict between him and Mister Mind, the talking alien caterpillar voiced by Sandberg in the post-credits posing an alliance with Mark Strong’s Dr. Sivana. Sandberg confirmed that Shazam! Fury of the Gods will not include Mister Mind due to concerns of overstuffing the plot, and with he and Sivana going on to be part of the Monster Society of Evil in the comics, it would be interesting to see the two characters come back for a potential third movie. Given Gunn’s proclivity for adapting less popular characters, it seems likely Shazam could have a bright future in the DCU after his return to the screen on March 17.
