Sequel trailer shows Shazam pondering where he fits in


Warner Bros. Pictures released the first trailer for Shazam! Fury of the Gods on Saturday.

The 2 1/2-minute preview, which had about 250,000 views on YouTube by midday, shows Zachary Levi as the titular superhero struggling to figure out where he fits in with the other superheroes in the universe, such as Aquaman and The Flash.

Shazam, released in 2019, followed middle school student Billy Batson (Asher Angel) who turns into an adult (Levi) with extraordinary, but difficult to manage abilities, thanks to a spell from a powerful wizard (Djimon Hounsou).

The sequel co-stars Jack Dylan Grazer, Adam Brody, Ross Butler, Meagan Good, D.J. Cotrona, Grace Caroline Currey, Faithe Herman, Ian Chen, Jovan Armand, Marta Milans, Cooper Andrews, Rachel Zegler, Lucy Liu and Helen Mirren.

David F. Sandberg, who directed Shazam! and Annabelle: Creation, helmed Fury of the Gods.

The haunted doll from Annabelle is seen in the trailer as Shazam tries to discuss his insecurities with his pediatrician.

The movie is set for release on Dec. 21.

The 'Shazam! Fury Of The Gods' Trailer Has A 'Game Of Thrones' Reference And Lucy Liu And Helen Mirren As Evil Sisters

After the missed opportunity that was Black Adam, the DC Extended Universe could really use a win. Shazam! Fury of the Gods could be that win. The sequel to 2019's unexpectedly terrific Shazam! has Zachary Levi returning as Billy Batson / Shazam, along with Adam Brody, Rachel Zegler, Djimon Hounsou, Lucy Liu, and Helen Mirren as evil sisters. No one is having more fun in franchise films than Helen Mirren.

You can watch the Shazam! Fury of the Gods trailer above. Listen for a well-timed Game of Thrones reference (Warner Bros. Discovery synergy!).

"It's sort of an extension of the first movie," director David F. Sandberg told Entertainment Weekly about the sequel. "He finally found a family in that movie. But now, we see him struggling a bit now that they're growing up. He's holding on very tightly to his family because he doesn't want everyone to just scatter and go do their own thing. He just found his family, and he wants to have them all together." Sandberg also revealed what Mirren said during her first day on set: "Yeah! We need more p*ssy power on set! We're here now." You hear that, Vin?

Shazam! Fury of the Gods opens on March 17.
