Shazam! Fury of the Gods has lastly arrived and presents followers with the thrilling subsequent chapter within the story of Billy Batson and his foster household, who additionally function his superhero cohorts. Whereas the sequel’s major story is comparatively self-contained, it additionally contains some references to the broader DC Prolonged Universe or DCEU – which is now reworking into the DCU. Consequently, followers had been handled to a main DC cameo (that sadly spoiled in an advert). It’s a cool second however, as Mary Bromfield actress Grace Caroline Curry revealed, the forged didn’t really get to work with mentioned actor.
The movie’s third act sees Billy Batson doing battle with the villainous Kalypso, who commandeered the dragon Landon and wreaked havoc upon Philadelphia after planting the highly effective Tree of Life. Uncertain of learn how to greatest the villainous, Billy realizes that the dome (that Hespera encased town in) doesn’t react properly to his lightning. With that, the dying Hespera shrinks it, trapping each Batson and her maniacal sister in it. Whereas within the dome, Billy overloads the Wizard’s employees along with his electrical expenses and manages to defeat Kalypso. Although he sacrifices himself within the course of, he’s later resurrected within the Gods’ realm after Gal Gadot’s Diana Prince a.okay.a. Surprise Lady seems and recharges the employees.
The scene, which additionally sees Prince restoring the Gods’ realm, was absolutely thrilling for followers, and Grace Caroline Curry (who was additionally promoted to the position of superhero Mary) was additionally hyped about it. The star defined to CinemaBlend, nonetheless, that there have been a number of logistics that prevented the celebrities from really filming with Gal Gadot. When requested about whether or not she shot with Gadot, Curry candidly mentioned:

Some had been left upset when the digicam didn’t pan as much as reveal Henry Cavill because the particular person sporting the purple and blue costume. So those that’ve seen Fury of the Gods are positive to be thrilled that Gal Gadot really confirmed up for this cinematic outing. It’s only a bit ironic that whereas followers had been granted their want of a full DCU cameo, the celebrities themselves didn’t really get in on the enjoyable from a BTS standpoint. Nonetheless, Grace Caroline Curry can see a silver lining within the scenario:
This newest look from Surprise Lady will probably be much more particular to followers as a consequence of the truth that the character’s cinematic future is up within the air. The identical can also be true for Billy Batson and his discovered household. Nevertheless, DC Studios co-head James Gunn has debunked rumors of Diana Prince’s demise, whereas Shazam! director David F. Sandberg has appealed to followers in regards to the franchise’s future. Hopefully, followers will get to see extra of those characters ultimately shifting ahead. But when not, I’m glad that we not less than have a scene that entails Billy and (his crush) Diana crossing paths in a candy (and humorous) approach.
