«Shazam 2» shows the hero on a date with Wonder Woman — with a surprising twist

Warner Bros.

CinemaCon, the big trade fair for North American cinema operators, is currently taking place in Las Vegas, at which all Hollywood studios will present their upcoming portfolio over a period of one week. This is a particularly big event this year, as the common goal is to get people to return to the cinemas in a big way after the Corona doldrums — and because that can be done with a film like » Spider Man: No Way Home » has already worked so bombastic, comic book adaptations play a major role.

Warner’s presentation was also very much in the spirit of the studio’s upcoming DC adventures. In addition to various previews of » Aquaman 2 «, » Black Adam » and » DC League Of Super-Pets «, there was a long trailer for » The Flash «, which we are already reporting on here , and above all a preview of «Shazam 2» .

Shazam joked about ‘Fast & Furious’

According to reports from the US press present, the short preview of the superhero sequel by David F. Sandberg surprises with the entry. Shazam ( Zachary Levi ) is in Paris on a date with Wonder Woman — or so it seems. He flirts heavily with the superheroine. But we only see them from behind. When she turns around, we then learn that no Gal Gadot cameo was revealed here. In reality, it’s the powerful wizard ( Djimon Hounsou ) who broke into Billy Batson’s ( Asher Angel ) dreams to warn him. The daughters of the mighty Atlas (the titan to whom Shazam owes part of his powers) are after him.

The CinemaCon presentation also confirmed that Helen Mirren and Lucy Liu , as previously reported antagonists Hespera and Kalypso, are the same daughters, and then made a joke in connection with the «Fast & Furious» series. In a confrontation between Shazam and Helen Mirren’s adversary, the hero declares that he has seen all the «Fast & Furious» films. It’s about family.

When he repeats the word «family» a second time because nothing happens at first, his comrades-in-arms, introduced at the end of the first part, appear — Billy’s «brothers» and «sisters», who are now known to have superpowers. Of course, the inside gag is meant to allude to the fact that Helen Mirren, who was confronted by Shazam about his knowledge of Fast & Furious, is herself part of the auto-action franchise.

» Shazam! 2 ” is scheduled to hit theaters on December 15, 2022. It is not yet known when a longer trailer with scenes will appear online. So far there is only a teaser:
