What about the ‘Shazam 2’ trailer?
For its part, the trailer for ‘Shazam! Fury of the Gods’, directed by David F. Sandberg, shows us some fragments of the sequel to ‘Shazam!’ of 2019. Billy, played by Zachary Levi, is on a date with Wonder Woman (not played by Gal Gadot) in Paris. As he prepares to kiss her, he realizes that Wonder Woman is now the old man who gave him her powers in the first installment. All was a dream.
Later, he is with the character of Helen Mirren, who will be the new villain alongside Lucy Liu. Billy tells him that he has seen all the ‘Fast & Furious’ movies. From them, he has drawn the conclusion that the family is the most important thing when it comes to saving the world, alluding to the character of Vin Diesel in the saga and his commitment to the family. Later, Shazam and his friends battle a blue-eyed dragon (via ComicBook).
