Shazam 2 director David F. Sandberg unveils the first official look at the entire Shazam family’s new costumes. Following the success of 2019’s Shazam, Warner Bros. greenlit a sequel with Sandberg back at the helm. The first movie followed the origins of young hero Billy Batson (Asher Angel), who is granted the ability to turn into an adult superhero (Zachary Levi) whenever he says the word “Shazam.” Shazam 2 is currently slated to arrive in theaters in 2023. However, despite that date still being two years away, production on the film has already begun.

With plot details still being kept under lock and key, most of the news surrounding Shazam 2 has been about new cast members and updated costumes. When it comes to the former, the DCEU sequel will have a pair of very impressive villains going up against the heroes: Helen Mirren (as Hespera) and Lucy Liu (as Kalypso). West Side Story breakout Rachel Zegler has also joined the cast. Additionally, Shazam 2 will include the returns of Billy and his foster siblings, all of whom are getting new costumes.
