Rachel Zegler confirms her Shazam 2 character

Rachel Zegler confirms her role in Shazam! The rage of the gods; as previously speculated, she plays a sister to the goddesses of Helen Mirren and Lucy Liu.

Rachel Zegler has confirmed her role in Shazam! The wrath of the gods. Directed by David F. Sandberg, the first Shazam! the film was released in 2019 and became an instant hit with fans for its light-hearted tone and sense of fun and acting decent at the box office with a total worldwide gross of $ 366 million against an $ 80-100 million budget. The film depicts the story of the troubled orphan, Billy Batson (Asher Angel), who, after a confluence with an old wizard’s staff, develops the ability to transform into an adult superhero (Zachary Levi). Billy subsequently passes on his superpowers to his foster siblings, and together they fight to defeat the cunning Dr. Thaddeus Sivana (Mark Strong) and The Seven Deadly Sins. WB had added a sequel Shazam! under development shortly after the film’s release, but due to production delays caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the film takes some time to arrive.


Currently scheduled for premiere on June 3, 2023, Shazam! 2 will follow up on the lives of Billy and his siblings after an interval of two years. After practicing their abilities in fighting criminals over the years, the super-powerful foster family will now meet new, threatening old villains in the sequel. Legendary actresses, Helen Mirren and Lucy Liu, play the main antagonists, Hespera and Kalypso, daughters of the Greek god Atlas. former, West Side Story breakout, Rachel Zegler, was also confirmed to star in the film, though details of her character were kept hidden. Now, however, Zegler has updated fans about his role in Shazam! 2.

In a recent interview with Variety, Zegler confirmed that she plays another goddess in Shazam! 2, who happens to be the younger sister of Mirren and Lius’ characters. Zegler refrained from quoting a name, but she confirmed that she and the goddesses together will shake the dynamics of Shazam Family. Read what Zegler said below:

“There are 3 goddesses. I’m the youngest of 3 goddesses, there are 3 sisters. We come and shake up Shazamily a bit. It’s such a fun movie … I’m very excited to see the finished product.”

Zegler and the rest of Shazam! 2s cast and cast have been decidedly boring around her role in the film from the beginning. When the actress was cast, set footage revealed that she was wearing a golden armored costume, indicating that she would possess some sort of superpowers in the film. Shazam! 2‘s BTS trailer, which was unveiled at the DC FanDome 2021, however, established her more as a romantic interest in Jack Dylan Grazers Freddy, leading to some confusion about her character. In fact, the actress herself gave funny remarks to questions about her role, and at one point even said that no one has been able to guess it right yet.

With words coming from the horse’s mouth, it is now quite clear that Zegler’s character will certainly not be straightforward. There are various complexities attached to her role, where the main question is whether she is good or evil in the film. Right now, there seem to be two possibilities, either she’s not like her reluctant sisters, which means she might leave them to the Shazam family’s side during the film’s climax, or she’s the main point of the conflict, as’ I want to lure Freddy as part of her plan to create strife among his siblings and ultimately break Shazamily’s united strength. Of course, these scenarios are only speculation at the moment, and as time goes on, fans will learn more about Zegler’s character through new trailers and teasers. One thing is for sure though: Zegler has become a giant star in a very short time and DCEU would definitely benefit from continuing his dealings with the actress after Shazam! 2.
