David F. Sandburg reveals the first new-look photo of the Shazam family from Shazam: Fury Of The Gods…before someone else leaks it!
Director David F. Sandburg has pulled the rug out from all those people unscrupulous enough to leak photos from the upcoming DC Sequel ‘Shazam: Fury Of The Gods’. We already got a look at Zachary Levi in his new suit as the title character. Now, thanks to Sandburg, we have been afforded the first look at the Shazam family that we will see in the 2023 film:
WISE WORDS FROM THE DIRECTOR!
Sandburg decided to release the photo online as, by his own admission, he didn’t know how long he could keep them under wraps for before someone else leaked them to the world:
“Don’t know how long we can keep the new suits from leaking so here’s a pic I took the other day”
THE CAST RETURN AGAIN…BUT…
The cast from the original film is returning for this second adventure with Shazam but without Michelle Borth this time around. If you look at the photo above, you can see that actress Grace Fulton is playing the adult version of her character, Mary, as well as appearing as the younger version of her. No reason has been given for Michelle Borth’s departure even though the actress has said that she signed a five-picture deal with Warner Bros and DC films. The rest of the cast though is returning once more alongside Zachary Levi.

Asher Angel once again appears as the younger Billy Batson. Jack Dylan Grazer returns as Frederick ‘Freddie’ Freeman with Adam Brody playing the adult version of the character. Faithe Herman as Darla Dudley with Meagan Good as her adult version. Ian Chen as Eugene Choi with Ross Butler as his adult form. Jovan Armand as Pedro Pena with D.J Cotrona once again becoming his adult version. And of course, Marta Milans and Cooper Andrews as Rosa & Victor Vasquez respectively, the foster parents of the youngsters.
Newcomers to the franchise include Rachel Zegler, Lucy Liu, and Dame Helen Mirren. These three brilliant actresses are playing daughters of Atlas, the titan who was condemned to hold up the heavens and the sky for all eternity. Lucy Liu is playing Kalypso, Helen Mirren is portraying Hespera while Rachel Zegler’s character has yet to be revealed. Henry Gayden has returned to contribute the screenplay while David F. Sandburg once more wields the megaphone as director.
