The Shazam Family Grows Up

Alright, roll call time! Jack Dylan Grazer as Freddy, Ian Chen as Eugene, Faithe Herman as Darla, and Jovan Armand as Pedro will return in their characters’ regular forms. However, when they say the word “Shazam!” they will be played by Adam Brody, Ross Butler, Meagan Good, and D.J. Cortrona, respectively. Grace Fulton will also return as the eldest foster sibling, Mary, and will also play her superhero form this time around.

Joining the franchise is Rachel Zegler, whose Anthea is another Daughter of Atlas, although it’s unclear whether she will be joining her sisters in their path to world domination. Rizwan Manji, who played the memorable janitor Jamil in “Peacemaker,” will also appear in an undisclosed role. Here’s to hoping Jamil becomes a character that just randomly pops up in other DCEU media, as that guy was a delight.

David F. Sandberg has returned to direct “Shazam! Fury of the Gods,” working from a script written by Henry Gayden and Chris Morgan. It will also be the first DC project to be produced by Peter Safran after he took on the role of DC Studios’ co-head alongside James Gunn. 

“Shazam! Fury of the Gods” races into theaters on March 17, 2023.
