Shazam! star Asher Angel has not been able to enjoy any peace this week as every interview he’s actually trying to keep on topic quickly becomes derailed by the elephant in the room: James Gunn and Peter Safran’s new control of DC Studios. Although Angel, who stars as Billy Batson in the Shazam! franchise, was excited for his audience to finally see Shazam!: Fury of the Gods, that excitement has since diminished due to constantly shifting nature of the movie business right now.
Darby is Angel’s next project, and it’s coming out on Hulu this Friday. After that, you’ll be able to see him in all his DC glory on the big screen.
“Man, I feel really good with Peter and James coming on board,” Angel said the following “They’re obviously super talented and super passionate and I love how they’re creating this ten year plan. I think the DC Universe, there’s a lot of special movies to come, and I’m ready for Shazam to be integrated with some other superhero movies. We’re not here to talk about Shazam, but I’m excited.”
As you can see in the video below,
In Shazam! Fury of the Gods, when Billy Batson and his foster siblings are forced to get back into action and fight the Daughters of Asal, they have to stop them from using a weapon that could destroy the world. During their journey, they must make peace with the Gods because of Billy’s attitude towards their powers.
The upcoming DC film will star Asher Angel as Billy Batson / Shazam!, Grace Fulton as Mary Bromfield, Adam Brody as Super Hero Freddy, Faithe Herman as Darla Dudley, Meagan Good as Super Hero Darla, Ian Chen as Eugene Choi, Ross Butler as Super Hero Eugene, Jovan Armand as Pedro Pena, D.J. Cotrona as Super Hero Pedro, Marta Milans as Rosa Vasquez, and Cooper Andrews as Victor Vasquez. New cast members include Rachel Zegler in a yet-to-be-revealed role, Helen Mirren who will play Hespera, and Lucy Liu who’ll appear in the role of Kalypso.
Directed by David F. Sandberg, Shazam! Fury of the Gods lands in theaters on March 17th, 2023.
