The following month another big name was confirmed to be joining the cast as Lucy Liu was announced to be playing Hespera’s sister, KalypsoDjimon Hounsou was confirmed to be returning to the franchise as The Wizard in May 2021. 

In a massive reshuffle of the DC slate in March 2022, and unlike other projects, Shazam: Fury of the Gods saw its release date moved up from June 2023 to December 2022. The following month the movie’s premiere was once again moved up, even if this time around it was only a few days, to December 21.
