Shazam! The long-awaited follow-up to the 2019 DCEU movie Shazam! It is called Fury of the Gods. This movie is about foster kid Billy Batson again. When he says the word “Shazam,” he can turn into a superhero. Billy fights crime and learns to love his new family with the help of his foster siblings, who have become superheroes.
The first Shazam! was more fun and lighthearted than the other DCEU movies, so it’s no surprise that Warner Bros. announced in 2019 that they were making a sequel. So, we’ve made a complete, easy-to-read guide to Shazam that tells you everything you need to know.

When is the Shazam Fury of the Gods’ Release Date?
On December 21, 2022, Shazam! Fury of the Gods will be shown in theatres. Initially, the movie was set to come out on April 1, 2022. But because of the COVID-19 pandemic, this sequel won’t come out until November 4, 2022, and then again on June 2, 2023. Warner Bros. moved Shazam! Fury of the Gods up to December 16, 2022, then moved it back to December 21, 2022, so it wouldn’t go up against Avatar: The Way of Water. The latter should not be delayed again, I hope.
Shazam Fury of the Gods’ trailer: Watch the Shazam Fury of the Gods trailer here
The first trailer for Shazam! Fury of the Gods was shown to the public on July 23, 2022, at the San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC). This preview is set to an epic version of Eminem’s “Business,” It has the same silly tone as the first movie. It also shows new threats, one of which is a dragon.
Shazam Fury of the Gods’ Plot: What’s Shazam Fury of the Gods’ About?
As of this writing, Warner Bros. has not given an official summary of what happens in Shazam! So we’ll try to figure out what the movie is about by looking at the first trailer.
At the start of this Trailer, Billy is probably not sure if he is a good enough superhero. Not only that, but his siblings with superpowers are doing their things, and he can’t keep them in line. But the Wizard, played by Djimon Hounsou, tells Billy that the Daughters of Atlas is coming for him. The Wizard gives Billy powers before turning into dust in the first movie.
The sisters think that children stole the powers of gods, so they fix up the Wizard’s power-transferring staff, which Billy broke in the first movie. They will probably use it to take the Shazam Family’s powers back. Right now, that’s all we know, but the film will have more surprises than we saw in the trailers.
Will There Be a Third Shazam! Movie?
There hasn’t been an announcement about a third Shazam! movie yet, but that doesn’t mean we can’t guess where the storyline could go after the second movie.
Black Adam was the Wizard’s previous champion. Dwayne Johnson plays him in a movie that comes out a few months before Shazam! Fury of the Gods. Black Adam is an anti-hero who often fights Shazam in the comics. The director of both Shazam! movies, David F. Sandberg, hinted on Instagram that Black Adam might show up in Shazam! Fury of the Gods, so maybe he’ll show up in a scene after the credits to tease an epic fight between him and Shazam in Shazam! 3?
