Shazam! Fury of the Gods director David F. Sandberg has officially unveiled the new costumes worn by the heroes in the DC Comics sequel.
Taking to Twitter on Monday, Sandberg opted to get ahead of any potential leakers by offering fans a first look at the Shazam Family’s new suits. The photo spotlights Zachary Levi’s titular hero, together with Adam Brody’s Freddy Freeman, Meagan Good’s Darla Dudley, Ross Butler’s Eugene Choi, Michelle Borth’s Mary Bromfield, and D.J. Cotrona’s Pedro Peña.

The latest reveal comes shortly after Sandberg shared a teaser of Levi’s Shazam costume in a video he posted on social media. As glimpsed in the brief clip, the outfit features more gold accents and a sleeker look, particularly around the boots and wrists, with the rest of the suits also appearing more refined. The Shazam Family’s lightning bolt chest logo is also slightly altered to match the overall ensemble.

The Shazam sequel, officially titled Shazam! Fury of the Gods, will once again follow the adventures of teenager Billy Baston who is able to transform into Shazam by saying his name. While plot specifics are scarce, the title suggests we’ll be learning much more about the six gods who bestowed their powers upon the youngster.
The post-credits scene for the first Shazam movie saw the villain Doctor Sivana meet an alien named Master Mind, but it’s currently unknown whether this plotline will play into Fury of the Gods. Regardless of what happens with that, Helen Mirren and Lucy Liu have joined the cast as two new villains alongside Rachel Zegler who “may or may not be of ill intent,” according to The Hollywood Reporter.
No doubt we’ll find out more about their intentions when Fury of the Gods hits theaters in 2023. Before that, however, there’ll be plenty of other DC films to temporarily distract us. We have James Gunn’s Suicide Squad coming up on HBO Max this summer as part of the company’s 2021 day-and-date plan, as well as The Batman, Black Adam, The Flash, and Aquaman 2 all in 2022.
