When Shazam! Fury of the Gods blasts off in a couple of years, it will feature a new villain and more scenes of the Shazam Family according to David Sandberg. Sandberg spoke at DC FanDome over the weekend (per ComicBook.com) about the sequel to last year’s Shazam! and while played coy about some things, he did tease a few bits of news.

“I can’t really talk about villains or villain, but I think a lot of people will be surprised,” Sandberg said. “It’s gonna be a little unexpected.”

That could mean that Mister Mind, who appeared in the post-credit scene of the first, won’t be a major role or will only be one of several. Sandberg also said that we’ll see more of the Shazam family, who came into their powers at the end of the first film.

“Now they’re all superheroes, they’re all a family with superpowers,” he said. “And now we finally get to see that. We only got a glimpse of that in the first movie, so that’s something to look forward to.”

Shazam! Fury of the Gods will be directed and written by Sandberg and sees Zachary Levi return in the titular role. It’s currently set for release on November 4th, 2022.
