Shazam! The fury of the gods Director David F. Sandberg has confirmed the sequel will feature DC Film Justice League introductory animation.
Now that the shoot on Shazam! The fury of the gods is finished, David F. Sandberg is hard at work on the post-production of the film. A production as huge as The fury of the gods is filled with hundreds, if not thousands of plans that need to be crafted and edited in post, meaning we won’t see the Zachary Levi-led sequel until 2023.
Details on the sequel are slim, although it is known that the Shazam! the family will be at the forefront of the film. Lucy Liu, Rachel Zegler and Helen Mirren are also expected to play the Daughters of Atlas who come into direct conflict with Shazam! and his family.
While the first film exists within the confines of the DCEU – Superman is mentioned several times – the action / comedy didn’t feature DC Films’ opening intro which features many members of the Justice League. Speaking to Instagram, director David F. Sandberg showed off DC Films’ iconic opening and revealed that he “forgot” to include the Justice League opening animation for the first film and that she would appear in the sequel to come.
Justice League animated intro was first used in 2017 Wonder woman, before Justice Leaguethe Liberation. It’s great that David F. Sandberg can find some humor in the original Shazam! lacks the intro from DC Films, which seems to be more of a creative choice than a mistake.
Here is the official synopsis of the first Zachary Levi Shazam! movie:
