A new video from the Atlanta set Shazam: Fury of the Gods teases a surprising romance between two key characters.
Spoilers ahead for Shazam! Fury of the gods.
Details are relatively scant on Zachary Levi’s second outing as the jolly superhero, but a new video from the set could have provoked one of Shazam! Fury of the gods‘subplots. In the new video, Zachary Levi’s Shazam! and Djimon Hounsou’s Wizard are seen watching Rachel Zegler’s character sharing a kiss with Jack Dylan Grazer’s Freddy. It is not clear who exactly Shazam! Newcomer Zegler will be playing, though all signs point to her playing a daughter of Atlas.
Zegler’s character will be a sister to Helen Mirren’s villains and Lucy Liu as Atlas’s daughter. It is unclear when this scene occurs in the movie. Putting on our movie buff hats, it’s easy to imagine this scene leading up to Act 3, where Zegler’s character abandons his evil sisters and joins Shazam. family. Or maybe this happens early in the movie, leading to some hilarious banter between Jack Dylan Grazer and the Asher Angel characters. Regardless of where it takes place, Levi’s shocked face as Zegler flees the scenes is absolutely hilarious and worth watching alone.
The video from the set also provides a solid new look at Zachary Levi’s Shazam! suit, which is much less conspicuous than the one seen in the first movie, thanks to the lack of a bulky lightning bolt.
Here is the official synopsis of the first Shazam! movie:
We all have a superhero inside of us, it just takes a little magic to bring it out. In the case of Billy Batson (Angel), by shouting one word: SHAZAM !, this cunning 14-year-old foster boy can become the adult superhero Shazam (Levi), courtesy of a former wizard. Still a child at heart, inside a ripped and divine body, Shazam revels in this grown-up version of himself by doing what any teenager would do with superpowers: have fun with them! Can fly? Do you have X-ray vision? Can you shoot lightning from your hands? Can you skip your social studies test? Shazam sets out to test the limits of his abilities with the joyous recklessness of a child. But you will need to master these powers quickly.
Directed by David F. Sandberg, Shazam! stars Zachary Levi, Asher Angel, Mark Strong, Jack Dylan Grazer, Grace Fulton, Faithe Herman, Ian Chen, Jovan Armand, Cooper Andrews, Marta Milans, and Djimon Hounsou.
Shazam! is available in Digital HD, 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray and DVD, while Fury of the gods will hit theaters on June 2, 2023. Keep him locked up in Heroic Hollywood for the latest on the upcoming movie and be sure to subscribe to the Heroic Hollywood YouTube channel for more video content.
