As production continues on Shazam! Fury of the Gods in Atlanta, director David F. Sandberg took to Twitter to share a brief teaser for the upcoming DC sequel. The video offers the first footage of Zachary Levi’s return as Shazam in his new upgraded suit, which has been fully revealed in the first Fury of the Gods set photos that had surfaced online yesterday. The highly-anticipated film is set to make its debut on June 2, 2023. Its current release date puts the sequel against no direct competition as it’s only one scheduled for that day.
