Shazam!: Fury of the Gods is a big blockbuster superhero film. You will get two of the additional scenes to the movie once the credits start. In this, you will get the first containing some major hints that provide the future of the character Zachary Levi. This time end-credits scene teases big things if DC were to go forward with a third Shazam movie.
The controversies about wonder woman have ended as we have seen Billy has been saved by Wonder Woman. At the extreme moments of the film, the mid-credits sequence teases where Shazam might be heading in the larger DC cinematic universe. Shazam has done some lightning target practice; he’s approached by Peacemaker Emilia Harcourt and John Economos on behalf of Amanda Waller with an invite to the Justice Society.
“That before became the boss. It was actually supposed to be different characters, but then we had to change it last minute after we had already built the set,” Fury of the Gods director David Sandberg told. He also added, “We had the time and everything and we still wanted to do the scene, so Peter Safran, who produces Peacemaker, made some calls and thankfully, Jen Holland and Steve Agee were able to come down and do that scene. We still got to use that set and everything.”
For Shazam himself, he is beyond stoked at the possibility of Shazam joining a larger group of heroes–even though no formal announcements about a Justice Society team-up have been made under Gunn’s leadership.
“My hopes and dreams are the same that I’ve had since the beginning which was, I would love to be in a team,” Zachary Levi told GameSpot at the Fury of the Gods press junket. “The really fun thing is that within our own franchise, we have a team superhero movie, so I already get a little bit, but then to also work with other superheroes and another team, whatever team that is going to be, sign me up! I want to be a part of that.”
After Shazam himself getting fits in with Gunn’s vision for the next phase of DC movies, what will happen with the rest of the Shazamily is more unclear. There are the characters made by former DC chief Geoff Johns. Still, the end credits scene of Fury of the Gods teased what might be in store for the Shazamily if a third film is green-lit. Mr. Mind, a literal diabolical talking worm returns to the scene, visiting Dr. Siivana in prison.
“At first we were like, we’ll continue Mr. Mind and Sivana. They’re the ones who bring the Gods to this world,” the director explained. “Mr. Mind had this big plan, but it was just too much story to tell. Even without it, the movie is two hours and 10 minutes…I’m glad we got to do a little fun thing at the end because I know people are going to be like, ‘Wait, what happened with the worm?’ So he’s still working on something. It’s just going to take some time.”
Part of the decision to push the Mr. Mind showdown was also to maintain the charm of the first movie without turning Shazam into a full-on fantasy film.
“Later comics do go into all of these types of worlds, with the doors, and it becomes very sort of fantasy. We did go down the path and we talked about, ‘Oh, they go to animal land. That’s how we can bring in Tawky Tawny and things like that,’ but it didn’t feel right. What’s so good about the first one is that it’s sort of a fantastic thing happening in a pretty grounded world.
If you have something fantastical happening in a fantastic place, then it all becomes a sort of fantasy. I’m not a big fan of that. That’s when we scrapped it and started over with this idea of, ‘Well, his power is from the gods, maybe they’re coming to get the powers back.’
