Watch the film Shazam! Fury of the Gods – Billy Batson and his adoptive brothers, who transform into superheroes by saying “Shazam!”, are forced to return to action and fight the Daughters of Atlas, who they must stop from using a weapon that can destroy the world. “Shazam! Fury of the Gods” comes with two strikes against it as it’s not only a studio-produced sequel but also a superhero film being made in 2023. One should expect a certain level of creative committee-mandated, Mad Libs-y monotony, regardless of how one feels about “Shazam!” which is very good. The creators of the 2019 franchise’s fairly decent upstart, including director David F.

Billy’s anxiety speaks loudest for the “Marvel Family”, as comic fans know them, a group of friendly teenagers who, after shouting the magic word “Shazam”, were granted godlike superpowers. But even residents of Philadelphia, where most of the “Shazam! Fury of the Gods” happens, apparently not knowing who these kids are
