Shazam! Fury of the Gods director David F. Sandberg explains the film's new temporary logo. Released in 2019, the first Shazam! starred Zachary Levi as the titular superhero and alter ego of teenage orphan Billy Batson (Asher Angel). With the help of his foster brother Freddy Freeman (Jack Dylan Grazer), Billy must discover his new superpowers to defeat the evil Dr. Sivana (Mark Strong) and the Seven Deadly Sins, who gave Sivana his powers. Directed by David F. Sandberg, Shazam! was a surprise success following a pattern of box office failures for the DCEU, particularly for its blend of humor and heart.

Shazam!'s final battle showed Billy's foster siblings transforming into adult superheroes, establishing them as the Shazam family, and setting the film up for a sequel. The Shazam! sequel has faced multiple delays due to the coronavirus pandemic. Initially scheduled to be released in April 2022, it has since been pushed to November 2022 and now finally has an official release of June 2, 2023. While plot details for Shazam! Fury of the Gods have been kept largely under wraps, it's been said that the film will further explore the family's new superhero personas. The sequel will see Levi and Angel return as the adult and teenage Billy, respectively, as well as the rest of the core cast returning to their roles as Billy's foster brothers and sisters. Sandberg will also be returning as director. It was announced earlier this year that Helen Mirren and Lucy Liu have joined the cast as the film's villains. Filming on the sequel began earlier this month, with the cast and director giving updates on production.

Sandberg took to Twitter Friday to clarify that the new logo for Shazam! Fury of the Gods is just temporary. When a fan asked Sandberg to explain the movie logo that had been seen online, Sandberg explained that it was just a logo used for production, and that unlike the previous film, a code name was not being used for this movie. See Sandberg's tweet in the space below:

While there is very little that the director or cast has been able to talk about for this movie, they are certainly being less secretive than they were when filming the first movie, for which a code name had to be used. While Sandberg was at first declining to reveal who exactly the 'Gods' are that are referenced in the title, it has since been revealed that Liu will play Kalypso, daughter of the Greek god Atlas and sister to Mirren’s Hespera. The two are expected to join forces as the sequel's main villains.

Sandberg has declined to comment on many other details surrounding the film, including other casting rumors. While the film still has some time to go before its release, fans are eager for the sequel to come out, especially considering recent films in the DCEU have not been quite as well-received. Hopefully fans will get to see the real logo for Shazam! Fury of the Gods soon.
