“Shazam! 2: Fury of the Gods didn’t hit theaters around the world until 2023, but the details of the sequel are coming to life by the day.

“I want it to be released before June 2023. There are a lot of positive changes and I want to hear the public reaction right away. Even the kids are more mature, they’ve grown up, man. Now they understand a little more what their elders think, so there is a much bigger connection.

“This movie has twice the action and comedy, the chemistry between us is on another level. And now we have the villains Helen Mirren and Lucy Liu, they look fantastic. I take great pride in the work. that we have accomplished.
