Part of the charm of the first Shazam! film was watching the sweet coming-of-age friendship between foster brothers Billy Batson and Freddie Freeman develop, as they navigated the superhero business together. Portrayed by Asher Angel and Jack Dylan Grazer, the two actors sparked the characters to life with their chemistry and relatable comedic timing. Now, with Shazam! Fury of the Gods coming out, we get to see both the characters and the actors mature further as the adventures of Freddie and Billy, as well as the rest of the Shazam-ily, continue!
You couldn’t ask to chat with a nicer group of actors than the cast of Shazam! Fury of the Gods. And we were given the fortunate opportunity to sit with Angel and Grazer to celebrate the release of the new film. Thus, as part of our Shazam! week coverage, it is our pleasure to present to you our interview with the two young actors!
Join us as we dive into all the fun of the new film with both of them, discussing mythical creatures, superhero mash-ups, scary villains, and how Billy Batson deserves to find a nice girlfriend:
We will most definitely have more coverage for Shazam! Fury of the Gods coming this week, including our review of the movie tomorrow, and conversations with director David F. Sandberg and writers Chris Morgan and Henry Gayden coming as well.
But if you can’t wait to see more about the movie, don’t forget to check out our interview with the big guy himself, Zachary Levi, to see what he had to say about the film as well.
Shazam! Fury of the Gods hits theaters this Friday, March 17!
