DC Fandome dropped a pretty cool behind-the-scenes featurette from the set of the upcoming DC Comics sequel, “SHAZAM: FURY OF THE GODS.”
Shazam! Fury of the Gods is an upcoming American superhero film based on DC Comics featuring the character Shazam. Produced by New Line Cinema, DC Films, The Safran Company, and Mad Ghost Productions, and set for distribution by Warner Bros. Pictures, it is intended to be the sequel to Shazam! (2019) and the fourteenth film in the DC Extended Universe (DCEU). It is directed by David F. Sandberg from a screenplay by Henry Gayden, and stars Zachary Levi, Asher Angel, Jack Dylan Grazer, Djimon Hounsou, Rachel Zegler, Helen Mirren, and Lucy Liu.
A sequel to Shazam! began development shortly after that film’s release in April 2019, with Gayden returning as writer. Sandberg and Levi were also set to return by that December. The title and rest of the returning cast were confirmed in August 2020, with Zegler, Mirren, and Liu cast as the daughters of Atlas in early 2021. Filming began that May in Atlanta, Georgia and wrapped in late August 2021.
Shazam! Fury of the Gods is scheduled to be released in the United States on June 2, 2023.
