Today, during San Diego Comic-Con 2022, Warner Bros. presented the official trailer for the new chapter of the Shazam saga, in which Zachary Levi will once again play the role of the titular hero.
Shazam: Wrath of the Gods will be set several years after the events of the first film, and today the Shazam family is a popular superhero group in the DCEU.
Sequel to Shazam! was officially confirmed shortly after the original film’s release in April 2019, the title and the rest of the cast were announced in August 2020, and Rachel Zegler, Helen Mirren, and Lucy Liu were confirmed as villains in early 2021. Filming began in May of that year in Atlanta, Georgia and wrapped up in August. Originally scheduled for December 16, 2022, Shazam! Wrath of the Gods will release in the US on December 21, 2022. The release date was changed in the process to avoid box office competition with Avatar: The Way of Water, scheduled for December 16 in the US.
