The Plot of Shazam 2: Fury of the Gods
The plot revolves on Billy Batson, a little boy who was abandoned by his mother at a fair and now lives with other children in similar situations. His life changes when he is selected by the ancient wizard Shazam and given incredible abilities.
Billy can turn into an adult superhero with abilities just by shouting “Shazam!” He then explores his talents with his foster brother as evil lurks in the background attempting to take that power.
There has been no official word on the narrative of the film, but there are several theories floating around that seem extremely plausible given the title. The first is at the conclusion of Shazam 1, when Mister Mind approaches Dr. Thaddeus and suggests an alliance.
So we may anticipate Billy to run across Thaddeus again, but this time he will be accompanied by supporters. According to some hints, Shazam’s name is an abbreviation for six legendary figures: Solomon, Hercules, Atlas, Zeus, Achilles, and Mercury. Because the title of the film mentions gods, we could see some of these characters emerge.
Until now, it has been confirmed that Atlas’ daughter would feature in the film.
