For both DC and Marvel, 2022 has been a terrific year for superhero material, but it's never too early to anticipate the thrilling comic book movies coming out in 2023. Shazam! Fury of the Gods will be one of the sequels that we see next year. At San Diego Comic-Con in July, the movie's teaser gave us our first actual look at it. DC fans can now get the first poster for the much-anticipated superhero comedy sequel.

The actor who plays Shazam, Zachary Levi, put the picture on all of his social media accounts. It features the hero wearing an updated superhero outfit. The hooded cape and big muscle suit from the first movie are no longer present. This time, the crimson and gold colour scheme is much more subdued, and the suit is a much sleeker creation fit for a god. Shazam's modernised look doesn't mean he's lost his sense of wonder, though, as the comic book character is comically depicted hanging loose on a hoverboard scooter in the ad. It closely resembles the initial posters for the movie, which showed Shazam wearing a superhero suit and going about his daily business.

In the post, Levi jokes that he's modest in comparison to his other superhero contemporaries and labels the sequel wiser, stronger, faster, funnier, and overall cooler. He also makes mention of Breakin' 2: Electric Boogaloo, one of the most ridiculous sequel names ever. When Shazam! debuted in theatres in 2019, it was a delightful, humorous, exciting, and touching surprise that was fantastic for the whole family. Levi, who portrayed the adult version of Billy Batson, a.k.a. Shazam, was at the core of it. His comedic timing is unbeatable, and he did a great job of capturing the charm of the innocent hero.

According to the first trailer for Fury of the Gods, the sequel will focus more on the Shazam family while ratcheting up everything that worked in the original movie. One of the best things about the original was how amazing the ending was when Billy's family got their powers. Because of this, it will be fascinating to watch this superhero family function as a unit for an entire movie. They will be fighting against the goddesses Hespera and Kalypso, who are played by Helen Mirren and Lucy Liu, so they will need all of their skills.

On March 17, 2023, The Shazam Family will make a comeback in theatres. Levi, Mirren, and Liu are joined in the sequel by Asher Angel, Rachel Zegler, Adam Brody, Meagan Good, Ross Butler, Caroline Currey, and Jack Dylan Grazer.
