One of the biggest unknowns in the world of mainstream cinema this year is How will audiences respond to superhero movies? after the vaunted superhero fatigue. More specifically, how will he respond to a movie like ‘Shazam! The fury of the gods’, which he has only encountered setbacks on his way to success but he tries to come back with a new trailer in which he appears much more epic and serious than in his previous installment.
For the glory of the gods
In its 2019 premiere, ‘Shazam!’ grossed enough to greenlight a sequel, but at the same time it was a flop considering the rest of the DC universe movies. Now that James Gunn has announced that his days are numbered, is there really a future for this second part considering that its spin-off, ‘Black Adam’, did not meet expectations at the box office?
for now, the trailer seems to stray too far in intentions from the original filmwhich exuded a sense of humor and family cinema, and focuses on the confrontation of the group of superheroes with Calipso and a full-fledged dragon. If the public of the DC universe wants epicity or in these moments of final limping he just wants to have a good time, it remains to be seen.
Doubts will be dispelled March 17just one month after ‘Ant-man and the Wasp: Quantumania’ is in charge of starting the superheroic year of truth, in which We’ll see if Kevin Feige is right and these movies will never die or are we past their prime. The bets are on the table.
