Shazam sequel director took to Twitter and posted the below image, noting that he was releasing the photo to get ahead of any potential set images being leaked online. This is always the case and risk on any superhero films, specially ones that need to film outdoors. “Don’t know how long we can keep the new suits from leaking so here’s a pic I took the other day,” Sandberg tweeted.


In the picture shows Shazam (Zachary Levi) together with the adult superhero forms of Freddy Freeman (Adam Brody), Darla Dudley (Meagan Good), Eugene Choi (Ross Butler), Mary Bromfield (Grace Fulton), and Pedro Peña (D.J. Cotrona).

Shazam’s costume looks a bit more evolved than the somewhat puffy-looking 2019 version, as fans have noticed. The character’s signature chest lightning bolt glow effect is presumably added during active shooting or in postproduction.

Adding to the returning casts include Jack Dylan Grazer who plays the young Freddy Freeman, the sequel has added Lucy Liu as Kalypso and Helen Mirren as Hespera, both were daughters of Atlas.

The sequel, Shazam! Fury of the Gods, is scheduled for release on June 2nd 2023. Still a long time, but I believe it will be worth a wait.
