Back in 2019, DC fans got a fun superhero flick in the form of Shazam!, introducing us to the live-action take on the young Billy Batson and his adult super alter-ego. At the end of the film, viewers were also able to meet the Shazam Family– Billy’s adoptive siblings who have also harnessed his power.
In a photo Tweeted by director David Sandberg, he has revealed the new costumes that the superhero family will be donning in the sequel, Shazam! Fury of The Gods. Check it out below:

Besides the new costumes, Sandberg also revealed a change in casting as Michelle Borth will no longer play Mary Marvel. Instead, Grace Fulton who played Mary Marvel’s human counterpart, Mary Bromfield, will also play the superhero. Meanwhile, Zachary Levi, Meagan Good, Ross Butler, Adam Brody, and D.J. Cotrona will be reprising their superhero roles.
Yes, Grace now plays both parts. But her hair and makeup is slightly different when she’s super so nobody will ever recognize her. Hey, it works for Wonder Woman! https://t.co/suaG3vaEZw— David F. Sandberg (@ponysmasher) June 21, 2021
Shazam! follows the young boy Billy Batson who meets an aging wizard that grants him the power of Shazam. By shouting “Shazam,” Billy transforms into the adult superhero who has the powers of flight, inhuman strength, electricity, and more. In the end of the film, Billy was able to give his siblings similar powers turning them into the Shazam Family. While the sequel’s plot details are still under wraps, it is rumored that Lucy Liu and Helen Mirren will be playing the villains Kalypso and Hespera.
Also returning in Fury of the Gods are the young stars Asher Angel, Jack Dylan Grazer, Faithe Herman, Ian Chen, and Jovan Armand. The film is set for release in 2023.
