It’s Shazam! Week at The Nerds of Color. And so far, we’ve been incredibly lucky to have been able to chat with stars Zachary Levi, Asher Angel, and Jack Dylan Grazer about their new film Shazam! Fury of the Gods. And it has been a true honor for us because the first Shazam! film was an absolute delight. However, with Fury of the Gods coming to theaters this Friday, the question becomes — will lightning strike twice? Let’s break down the answer for this right now!
Fuse’s standout original series Made From Scratch invites viewers into the kitchens of their favorite celebrities, like comedian Atsuko Okatsuka, as they cook their favorite dishes while sharing their most cherished memories with loved ones.
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!

Well folks, today is March 10, or Mar10 for short. Which, for those unfamiliar, is the feast of Mario, patron saint of the Mushroom Kingdom, who defeated the evil King Koopa to save the princess and all the little toadstools from tyranny. It is a religious holiday for many, and to commemorate this, Nintendo and Illumination have released the final trailer for the highly anticipated The Super Mario Bros. Movie!
When Disney+’s Chang Can Dunk was first announced, many questioned the idea of an Asian person centering their story on basketball and — from the look of the photos released at the time — his style of dress, which could be construed as appropriating Black culture to benefit another race’s story.

In 2020, Executive Producers (and geniuses) Robert Downey Jr. and Susan Downey unveiled a gritty HBO Max reboot of the iconic legal hero, Perry Mason, to the world.
