Hands down, my favorite movie in the DCEU, and probably the biggest surprise of 2019, was Shazam! Directed by David F. Sandberg, and starring the brilliant Zachary Levi and Asher Angel, along with the charismatic Jack Dylan Grazer, the film really brought a wonderfully charming superhero-spin on Big, while remaining completely faithful to the New 52 run of the characters. It was funny, different, and most of all, unexpectedly full of heart. Today at the DC FanDome, the cast was reunited once more to
talk about not talk about insights for the upcoming sequel!
The MC of the event was Shazam himself, Zachary Levi! Levi then called in Angel, Grazer, Sandberg, the adorable Faithe Herman, and the always welcome Meagan Good and Adam Brody (and for some reason comedian, Sinbad — who may or may not be in the sequel?). But hilariously, the whole bit about the panel was that no one could say anything or give any information about the movie.
The whole 10-minute segment was fun and entertaining, but rather slim on any sort of insights, apart from one major news break–the title of the sequel.
Coming soon, look out for Shazam: Fury of the Gods!
