While Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania unveiled its new trailer.

a small preview came simultaneously from the DC universe : David F. Sandberg has in fact announced that the second trailer of Shazam! Fury of the Gods is coming later this month.

The director posted a photo from the editing room, on the screen of which the Motion Picture Association of America sign can be seen introducing the video. We can imagine that the trailer will take advantage of the release of the aforementioned Marvel film – in theaters from February 15th – as a driving force for promotion.

This is the first DC cinecomic of 2023, as well as one of the last before the transition to the new “kingdom” of James Gunn and Peter Safran , heads of the newborn DC Studios . We don’t know much about their plans for the future of the DC Universe , but they are sure to change a lot. We’ll see if there will still be room for Asher Angel and Zachary Levi ‘s Billy Batson .

I remind you that the Italian release of Shazam! Fury of the Gods is expected on March 16, 2023 . You can see the photo below.

The announcement

The synopsis of the first film

There is a superhero inside each of us, it just takes a little magic to bring it out. In the case of Billy Batson just say the word “SHAZAM!”. This 14-year-old adopted boy can transform into the adult superhero Shazam, thanks to an ancient sorcerer. Preserving the heart of a child in a handsome, godlike body, Shazam does what any superpowered kid would do: have fun! Can he fly? Does he have x-ray vision? Can he shoot beams from his hands? Can he skip his homework? Shazam decides to test all his powers with the light-heartedness typical of children. But he must learn to control them to counter the evil forces controlled by Dr. Thaddeus Sivana.

As for the actors, Zachary Levi plays the superhero, while Asher Angel lends the face of his alter ego, the little Billy Batson . Mark Strong was the villain Doctor Sivana in the first film, while Grace Caroline Currey plays Mary Bromfield . Also starring Jack Dylan Grazer ( Freddy Freeman ), Cooper Andrews , Marta Milans , Ross Butler , DJ Cotrona , Meagan Good , Adam Brody , Djimon Hounsou andJohn Glover .

The most powerful mortal in the world

Shazam , initially called Captain Marvel , was created by CC Beck and Bill Parker in 1939, but first appeared in Whiz Comics n° 2 (February 1940), a book by Fawcett Comics , a publishing house later acquired by DC .

The superhero is the alter ego of William “Billy” Batson , a 15-year-old orphan who can summon the powers of the wizard Shazam and transform himself into the character of the same name, an adult and gifted with great abilities: in fact, he possesses the wisdom of Solomon , the strength of Heracles , the endurance of Atlas , the power of Zeus , the courage of Achilles and the speed of Mercury .
