The filmmaker of Shazam! Fury of the Gods, David F. Sandberg, dismissed recent reports that the film's delay was caused by reshoots. Fans were concerned that the highly anticipated sequel to the 2019 DCEU film Shazam! would have to undergo some last-minute changes, but this is not the case.
The delay in Shazam! Fury of the Gods came just a few weeks after Warner Bros. Discovery slammed Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah's Batgirl, scrapped the Supergirl and Wonder Twins movies, and announced a 10-year strategy that would theoretically unify every DC production under a single banner, similar to what Marvel Studios does in the future.
It's easy to see why concerned fans might be speculating that Shazam! Fury of the Gods would have to undergo some cuts to fit Warner Bros. Discovery's new plan. However, Sandberg says the cut has been locked for quite some time and that the studio is still working on the film's final version until the film's director is satisfied.
Billy Batson (Asher Angel for the teenage version, Zachary Levi for the superhero) shared his powers with the whole foster family, becoming a team of heroes who fight evil together. Jack Dylan Grazer/Adam Brody, Ian Chen/Ross Butler, Jovan Armand/D. J. Cotrona, and Darla Dudley/Meagan Good played the superhero in the first film.
Lucy Liu and Helen Mirren will play the Daughters of Atlas, descendants of one of the gods that gives Billy his powers, who are displeased to watch Atlas' stamina being misused by children.
On March 17, 2023, Shazam! Fury of the Gods will be released in theaters. Check out Sandberg's posts and the film's latest trailer below:
