Warner Bros. Pictures and New Line Cinema are set to release 2019’s sequel Shazam! movie and it feels like a major step up from the first movie. Of everything we’ve seen in the trailers For Shazam! fury of the gods, it looks like the “Shazamily” is going to have a hard time taking on the film’s antagonist. Helen Mirren, Lucy Liu, and Rachel Zegler have joined the franchise as the Mean Girls of Atlas, and it’s gonna take whatever Billy Batson/Shazam! must emerge victorious. The plot of the first movie is basically a wizard who gives his powers to a teenager and he then shares those abilities with his foster family to take on the villainous Dr. Sivana. ComicBook.com’s Brandon Davis recently had the chance to speak with Asher Angel and Jack Dylan GrazerWho’s playing Freddy Freeman in both films, where the latter reveals that in the sequel his character takes advantage of his abilities in a unique way.
“He tries to woo women,” Grazer revealed. “He’s trying because, you know, he’s blossomed into adulthood and he’s, I think, richly, he’s kinda clumsy, neurotic, spas. But he’s really trying to love, you know, to rule it because he finds this girl at school whose kind of, oh my god, it’s so special and he wants to hook up. But he uses the superhero thing as leverage, of course. Like I I’d do, I’d be like, ‘oh yeah, I did that movie, Shazam!, anyway I’m an actor. I’m actually an artist first, but do you know what your name is again?’ You know, up front, I think like most boys, they feel like they have to compensate.”
