“Shazam Fury of the Gods” is the highly anticipated sequel to the 2019 DC superhero film “Shazam!”. My son and I screened the film before it releases in theaters on March 17th, and I can’t say enough good things about it! This is a must-see film in theaters!! Make sure to stay after the credits roll for two extended scenes.
I was invited as media to attend this event. All opinions are my own.
Shazam Fury of the Gods
Shazam! Fury of the Gods continues the story of teenage Billy Batson who, upon reciting the magic word “SHAZAM!,” is transformed into his adult Super Hero alter ego, Shazam.
Bestowed with the powers of the gods, Billy Batson and his fellow foster kids are still learning how to juggle teenage life with having adult Super Hero alter-egos. But when the Daughters of Atlas, a vengeful trio of ancient gods, arrive on Earth in search of the magic stolen from them long ago, Billy—aka Shazam—and his family are thrust into a battle for their superpowers, their lives, and the fate of their world.

Shazam Fury of the Gods Movie Review
One of the strengths of Shazam! Fury of the Gods is its commitment to the lighthearted and comedic tone that made the first film such a hit. Zachary Levi once again shines as the charismatic and charming Billy/Shazam, delivering plenty of laugh-out-loud moments with his witty one-liners and physical comedy. The film also continues to explore the themes of family and belonging that were at the heart of the first film, with the dynamic between Billy and his foster family remaining a highlight.
Shazam Fury of the Gods is the best DC film yet!
The superhero film is reminiscent of Harry Potter with some Game of Thrones and Percy Jackson thrown in the mix. It keeps you laughing throughout and the special effects are incredible. I’m looking forward to future Shazam films!
Is Shazam Fury of the Gods for young kids?
It’s important to note that the movie is rated PG-13. And that’s a strong PG-13. There is violence and language. At one point, a child says “mother….”, but the scene quickly changes before the word is said, yet my 12-year-old quickly caught on that a curse word was implied. I would recommend this film for ages 12 and up.
