Shazam! Sequel Is Funnier and Gets Away With a Lot More Than First Movie

According to cast member Jack Dylan Grazer, the upcoming movie ‘Shazam! Fury of the Gods’ is more hilarious than the first film and has a different costume.

AceShowbiz -“Shazam! Fury of the Gods” “gets away with a lot more” than the first movie, according to its star Jack Dylan Grazer.

The 17-year-old actor – who will reprise his role as Freddy Freeman in the upcoming DC Comics sequel – has heaped praise on both Henry Gayden‘s script and the cast assembled for the follow-up.

“It’s a great cast. We got Helen Mirren, we got Lucy Liu, we got the new up-and-coming star Rachel Zegler from Steven Spielberg‘s West Side Story,” he told Collider.

“The script is hilarious. It’s funnier than the first one, I’d have to say. We’re getting away with a lot more this time. It’s action-packed and it’s got twists and turns and it’s super-duper fun.”

“The costume is different, no hood. And the shoes kind of look like Iron Man‘s shoes. Oh, wait, no. Iron Man doesn’t exist. Who’s Iron Man?”

Grazer revealed his instant reaction to reading the script although he stopped short of teasing any details as he poked fun at Spider-Man actor Tom Holland‘s knack for nearly giving spoilers away.

“It was like, ‘Oh, wow!’ Totally… I better not (expand much more). I don’t want to pull a Tom Holland,” he quipped.

In April (21), it was revealed Liu had joined the movie as wicked demigod Kalypso, the sibling to Mirren’s character Hespera – the daughters of the god Atlas – and the pair are set to cause havoc for Billy Batson (Asher Angel) and his grown-up superhero alter ego Shazam (Zachary Levi).

The sequel will continue the story of teenage Billy who, upon reciting the magic word “Shazam!”, is struck by the Living Lightning of the gods and transformed into Shazam.
