It’s been more than three years since Zachary Levi first flew into theaters and took the box office by storm with DCs Shazam!—and finally we finally have our first trailer for the sequel, Shazam! wrath of the gods. The stars of the show? Hollywood powerhouses Helen Mirren and Lucy Liu play legendary villains Hespera and Calypso, Daughters of Atlas.
Asher Angel returns wrath of the gods as Billy Batson, an orphan who calls “Shazam!” to activate his adult superhero alter ego. (That would be Levi, who also returns alongside original director David F. Sandberg.) Returning cast members for wrath of the gods includes Jack Dylan Grazer and Djimon Hounsou, and the sequel also adds Adam Brody, Meagan Good, Michelle Borth, Ross Butler and DJ Cotrona to the cast.
This new installment sees Zachary Levi’s superhero alter-ego in the throes of an existential crisis. The other superheroes he knows (all DC heroes – Batman, Aquaman, The Flash…wait, the Flash?) are so impressive. “I don’t even deserve all these powers, if I’m being honest,” he says in the film’s first full trailer, which premiered at San Diego Comic-Con on Saturday. “Like, what am I contributing anyway?”
Hopefully Billy will find out his intentions quickly, as the Daughters of Atlas are upset when they see that he and so many other mortals have been bestowed with god-like powers. (We sense a common thematic lawn with Marvel’s recently released Thor: Love and Thunder?) Alongside the lady and former Charlie’s Angels, Rachel Zegler Shazam! Rolle has now been confirmed as another Atlas daughter. That’s a trifecta you don’t want to mess with.
