New images of ‘Shazam! The fury of the gods’

While a new DC Extended Universe is being prepared, Warner Bros. Discovery projects that were already scheduled continue to be presented or bring news. As part of the buildup to Shazam! The fury of the gods, there are unpublished images related to the sequel to the production released in 2019.

Shazam! The Fury of the Gods will be the direct sequel to Shazam!, released four years ago. This production left a good feeling, beyond the fact that the DC Extended Universe has been going through turbulence for a few years. This project is headed by the actor Zachary Levi, who plays the protagonist.

In Shazam! The fury of the gods, Levi will have more than just company: his character’s journey will lead him to face beings that go beyond logic. One of those figures is Anthea, one of the daughters of Atlas —a titan from Greek mythology—, who will be played by Rachel Zegler. Regarding her presence in the film, the actress was encouraged to share some issues.

Shazam! The Fury of the Gods: New Images

Via his profile on Twitter, Rachel Zegler shared a couple of images related to the project and her role. In one she can be seen smiling in front of what could be her dressing room and in another she is on the recording set.

In the tweet, Rachel Zegler says the following in relation to Shazam! The fury of the gods and its role:

“I’ve had a great week: meeting with the press, discussing my next film, sitting in the Dior couture fashion show, the launch of the Shazam trailer, among other things (we’ll talk soon). I’m pinching myself for ‘Baby Rachel’ and for the Rachel who, in 2021, was so insecure about her future. I’m here for them.”

During the trailer for Shazam! The fury of the gods, Rachel Zegler can be seen moments before showing part of her powers. She, through the role of Anthea, will be one of the adversaries that the protagonist of the story will have to face to try to save the earth.

The daughters of Atlas, to the attack

One of the main threats that will appear in Shazam! The fury of the gods are the daughters of Atlas, according to what the production trailer suggests. This film adaptation, inspired by references from Greek mythology, will represent the following characters:

  • Kalypso, who is played by Lucy Liu.
  • Anthea, played by Rachel Zegler.
  • Hespera, role of Helen Mirren.

What is the goal of these mythical figures? Take back some of the power they’ve extracted from Atlas, from their point of view. To do this, he will face Shazam and his family. The conflict promises to generate enough damage and further strain the relationship between divinity and human beings.

The trailer Shazam! The fury of the gods anticipates that, between conflicts, different relationships will also be woven. Both personal, in the protagonist’s environment, and with the apparent threat. In that sense, Anthea could have a key role: she is the youngest of the sisters and her attitude may not be so confrontational.

This could open a gap to solve the conflict of power that Shazam! The fury of the gods. This story, in the short career of Rachel Zegler, is the most relevant. The interpreter’s career began in 2021, being part of West Side Story, one of the celebrated films of that year. Her performance as Anthea is a leap into pop culture and into a franchise, the DC Extended Universe, that is undergoing transformation. Shazam! The Fury of the Gods will be released on March 17.
