By October 20202, the release date of Shazam 2 was pushed back once again to June 2, 2023. However, the film's premiere date was moved to December 16, 2022, before finally settling on December 21, 2022, as the final release date to avoid clashing with the premiere of another movie, Avatar 2. Then, by August 24, 2022, Warner Bros. once again announced changes on its calendar, moving around major movie release dates, including Aquaman, The Flash, and Black Adam.

Mark Strong as Dr. Sivana

There are still no confirmed details about the plot of Shazam 2: Fury of the Gods. However, since the film belongs to one franchise, we can assume that the second movie will pick up where the first film ended.

From there, we may meet new villains like the humanoid evil space worm called Mister Mind, who will work with Dr. Sivana to conquer the universe.

The recent casting announcements may also clue us into the other possible plots of the movie. Based on Greek mythology, Hespera and Kalypso are the daughters of the titan Atlas. Hespera and Kalypso are not featured in the comic books, but Atlas has appeared in the DC universe from time to time, often shifting sides between good and bad. This ambiguity is carried on by his daughters, who seem to be presented as having the potential to be heroes or to be villains.
