With just two months to go before its global premiere in March 2023, Shazam! Fury of the Gods just got a new trailer! But while the trailer offers new footage from the promising sequel, the DCEU fandom believes the trailer included heavy spoilers and thus gave away the entire movie in the under-three-minute trailer.
The new trailer features a more detailed version of the threat the daughters of Atlas pose, not only to Billy Batson and his new family but to the entire world. Zachary Levi and Asher Angel are back to play the lead, and so is Djimon Hounsou, who was killed in the last film.
A few details are still in the shadows, but the trailer does give away a massive chunk of the film. Watch the second Shazam! Fury of the Gods trailer as tagged below:
The trailer reveals the new fantasy creatures the film will include, as it also features how the upcoming movie will heavily rely on magic and dragons as they will on gods and superpowers. The trailer packed action, suspense, and even teased a few close-call sacrifices, and it really did feel like a shortened version of the film.
Fans took to social media, primarily Twitter, to show their disappointment with Warner Bros. Discovery on their part of sharing the entire movie’s plot in the new trailer. Many fans even went so far as to say they don’t feel the need to watch the film, given how everything was revealed in the recent trailer. We’ve tagged a few of these reactions below:
The trailer showed how far the daughters of Atlas will go to take their father’s powers from Batson and his family.
They reveal that Anthea chooses her sisters’ side, Freddy is used as the bargaining chip, and Billy wants to give his powers up and even suffers significant damage to his suit, which is only the tip of the iceberg.
The trailer makes the film look standalone, with nothing before and nothing after. The fandom believes this is WB’s way to sign off the Snyderverse and the old DCU with it, and we agree with the fans that this was not the way to do it.
Despite revealing the entire movie and the plot about how Billy Batson will go to insane lengths, like taking on dragons by himself, March 17, 2023, will bring the promising film to theaters. Will you be going in to watch the last sequel in the Shazam! series?
