In an interview with Screen ranting During San Diego Comic-Con 2022, Asher Angel revealed why he thinks “Shazam! Fury of the Gods will be better than the first film. “It seems incredible. People have been waiting for this movie. It’s bigger, it’s better, and it has more action scenes,” he said. “That’s literally everything you want in a superhero movie. It has so much heart and so much fun. It’s such a fun movie, so I think people will really enjoy watching it. Be ready”.
Even without Angel’s assurances, when viewers saw the newest Shazam! trailer, they knew they were expecting a wider scope of action. The sequel starts with the entire Shazam family not only fully charged, but spread out and “doing their own thing,” which sounds like the kids are testing their abilities on their own. Also, hey, there’s a dragon in the mix too.
More importantly, or at least more interesting, the trailer focuses heavily on the theme of family, and combined with Angel’s promise that the film conveys “so much heart” it seems like “Shazam! The fury of the gods” was not forgotten. what made the first movie so interesting. And this is something everyone can look forward to.
