Shazam! Fury of the Gods will be DC’s first 2023 theatrical release, heading into theaters on March 17th, 2023. Director David F. Sandberg, who returned to the franchise following the success of 2019’s Shazam! recently indicated that he’d completed post-production on the film, which filmed from May through August of 2021, and now a new report gives information on just how long the final cut of the film is expected to be.
According to One Take News, Shazam! Fury of the Gods will clock in at 2 hours, 10 minutes and 4 seconds. For reasons unbeknownst to 99% of the population of the known universe, fans have recently developed an unhealthy obsession with runtimes, using them to predetermine the quality of a film. Though it’s unclear where 130 minutes falls on the graph of quality of film vs. minutes of screentime, it is clear that it’s somewhat higher up than if the film were 2 hours and 9 minutes long, but also lower than the 2019 film, which ran for 2 hours and 12 minutes.
Shazam! Fury of the Gods will see Asher Angel return as Billy Batson and Zachary Levi return as Batson’s super-powered avatar. The sequel will see Batson and the Shazam Family take on the Daughters of Atlas played by Rachel Zegler, Lucy Liu and Helen Mirren.
