The recordings of ‘Shazam! 2: Fury of the Gods continues to be in full swing in Atlanta, and an Insgatram page posted a behind-the-scenes image revealing the return of Mage Shazam, played by Djimon Hounsou.
For those who don’t remember, the character of Hounsou was responsible for granting the powers of Billy Batson (Asher Angel) in the hero’s first film, teaching him to transform by chanting his name.
In the image, Hounsou appears looking a bit different from the original, with hair braided instead of loose.
“He is not dead,” says the legend.
Previously, Angel spoke to Entertainment Tonight and commented a bit on the sequel, promising that the feature will be a lot of fun.
“We’re racing right now, I’m in Atlanta. We run the second. I’ve been here since May so we’re recording everything and it’s going to be awesome. It’s crazy because it’s been a while since we should have started, so it feels good to be back. It’s great to see Zachary Levi and Jack Dylan Grazer again “.
He continues, “We also have a lot of additions to the cast, new people, so it’s good to be back as Billy Batson. It will be really fun. I think the sequel is definitely a good sequel to the first one. “
Recalling that the premiere of the film is scheduled for November 4, 2022 in North American theaters.
Zachary Levi returns as the main character. Adam Brody, Rachel Zegler, Helen Mirren and Lucy Liu complete the cast.
Henry Gayden returns as screenwriter, while David F. Sandberg takes over the director’s chair. Peter Safran joins as a producer.
The original film received critical acclaim (reaching 90% approval on the Rotten Tomatoes website), in addition to grossing over $ 365 million at the global box office.
