"Shazam! 2: Fury of the Gods": Two Crucial Changes to the Upcoming DC Blockbuster

As we previously reported, those responsible for "Shazam 2" recently posted a first teaser, in which you can marvel at the revamped outfit of the eponymous superhero. Now director David F. Sandberg added an image of the most important characters. Since Monday, you get to see the total of six superheroes in full costume on Twitter. Hence, it is also clear: not only does lead actor Billy Batson get a visually redesigned look as a superhero, but so do his companions. Overall, the outfit looks simpler, less padded and just trendier - this is especially evident in a direct comparison. Further news is Michelle Borth's planned role as Mary, as she will be replaced by fellow actress Grace Fulton, unlike Freddy, Darla, Eugene, Pedro and Billy. Director Sandberg also affirmed this on Twitter, where it was also revealed that she will embody both the human Mary as well as her counterpart as a superhero. Unfortunately, we will have to wait a little longer for the great battle between the teenagers and the three daughters of the titan Atlas, because "Shazam! Fury of the Gods" is not expected to be released before June 2, 2023.
