Shazam 2 Director Teases New Creatures & More Action In DCEU Sequel

Shazam! Fury of the Gods director David F. Sandberg teases an actionpacked sequel with mythical creatures which he is excited to show the fans.

Shazam! Fury of the Gods director David F. Sandberg teases a bigger more actionpacked sequel with numerous mythical creatures. Sandbergs first Shazam! movie came out in 2019 chronicling the story of teenage orphan Billy Batson Asher Angel as he developed the ability to transform into an adult superhero Zachary Levi. In the movie Billy fights and defeats the evil Dr. Thaddeus Sivana and the Seven Deadly Sins while at the same time helping his foster siblings secure super powers of their own. Owing to its positive reception and decent boxoffice performance WB and DC greenlit a sequel to Shazam! only days after its release. Initially the movie was slated to hit theatres in 2023 but due to some recent scheduleshuffling the Shazam 2 release date is now set for December of this year.

From the getgo Sandberg has been hyping up Shazam! Fury of the Gods as a bigger sequel with both more action and fantastical imagery than the original. As the director points out the film has some great villains Kalypso and Hespera respectively played by Lucy Liu and Helen Mirren and the set pieces which include new locations like Athens and the Realm of Gods are also quite grand. During last years DC FanDome Sandberg also revealed the concept art for some of the mythical creatures that would appear in the film and he is now excited to show them to his fans.

In a new tweet Sandberg expresses his excitement for Shazam 2. He calls the sequel a much bigger movie and says hes most stoked about the new creatures and action scenes which he is sure will please superhero movie aficionados. Somewhat surprisingly he doesnt want WB and DC to hold back from showing a lot of stuff in the Shazam! Fury of the Gods trailer as he cannot wait for fans to see what he has done with the Shazam! universe. Take a look at his tweet below

Fans first got the idea about the sequel being a levelup from the original when Sandberg revealed Shazam 2s new costumes for all the superheroes. The costume upgrades signify bigger roles for the supporting cast as well as more superhero action both of which have been guaranteed by Sandberg. Additionally since Shazam! Fury of the Gods takes place two years after the original movie it has been specified that Billy and his siblings are now more in control of their superpowers meaning that they will be taking the new threats posed by Mirren and Liu headon. Fans can also expect the action in Shazam 2 to be more serious than playful as previous images of Levis damaged suit point to an aggressive encounter between Shazam and the new villains.

Talking specifically about the new mythical creatures in Shazam 2 the dragons harpies manticores and cyclopes its hard to tell how they will fit into the story. The most likely possibility is that they are sidekicks to the main antagonists who will cause trouble for Shazam and his siblings. Although there is also the chance that while some monsters would side with the villains others could aid the heroes in battle instead. More details about the action and creatures in Shazam! Fury of the Gods will become clear once the trailer for the movie comes out which if the rumors are to be believed could be soon.
