A video leak from the set of Shazam 2 shows Rachel Zegler in her superhero costume, apparently confirming that her mysterious character is a daughter of Atlas.
Shazam 2 The filming video reveals Rachel Zegler’s superhero costume. 2019 Shazam! finally brought comic book superhero Billy Batson to the DCEU after a very long wait. Fans were clearly thrilled with the results, as the film grossed $ 366 million worldwide.
Given these huge box office returns for Shazam! it’s no surprise that a sequel is currently in the works (after a long delay imposed by COVID). Zachary Levi returns for Shazam! The fury of the gods as the (physically) adult superhero version of Batson, as does director David S. Sandberg, who, when not actually working on the film, is busy promoting the film on Twitter (and sometimes to troll the fans). New additions to The fury of the gods the cast includes Helen Mirren and Lucy Liu as DC villains Hespera and Kalypso, daughters of the god Atlas. In February, it was announced that Zegler had also joined the cast in a mystery role.
Shazam! Fans were recently treated to leaked set photos offering a first look at the new Levi’s Shazam 2 suit. Now, a leaked video of the shoot gives everyone a first glimpse of Zegler in his own costume. As an added bonus, the video shows Levi in his Shazam clothes again, holding a small fan to cool off (it’s hot in these costumes). The action is shot in a parking lot, and other costumed actors can be seen walking around. See the clip in the space below (via jachel_updates / Instagram):
The video doesn’t give a good look at Zegler, but it apparently confirms that she is playing a superhero character in the film. Official details of Zegler’s character have not been revealed, but it is believed that she plays the sister of Mirren and Liu’s characters, which would also make her a daughter of the Greek god Atlas. There have been other rumors that Zegler’s character will at some point claim to be an ally of Billy Batson and his brother Freddy Freeman in order to gain their trust. This storyline hints that Zegler’s character might start off as a villain but end up doing well, although that’s only speculation at this point.
What is not speculation is that Zegler’s star is rapidly rising in Hollywood. The actress of course had her chance when she was chosen from among thousands of applicants for the role of Maria in Steven Spielberg’s remake of the classic musical. West Side Story. Zegler has yet to release a movie, but she has plenty of popular YouTube videos, including a cover of “Shallow” by A star is born which has over three million views.
Considering she is set to star in both a Spielberg movie and a big superhero franchise movie, it’s fair to say that Zegler is about to become a big deal in Hollywood. Shazam! Of course, that will remain a big deal in the DCEU, as the character’s classic opponent, Black Adam, is set to release his own movie with Dwayne Johnson in the lead. The future looks definitely bright for Shazam as a big chunk of DC movie plans, even beyond Shazam 2. It’s clear that the light approach can work for DC, just like the dark approach sometimes did.
