As is the tradition every time a superhero movie is released, regardless of the company it is, the inevitable post-credit scenes end up generating more conversation than the feature film they accompany —or is it the film that accompanies the post-credits?—, and the case of the hilarious ‘Shazam! The fury of the gods’ was not going to be an exception.
The latest adventure of Billy Batson and company closes with two scenes that could predict a promising future for the character and his cinematographic adventures, and if you want to know why, in this article I am going to explain what happens in them and what they are its potential implications for the DC Universe in a state of reconstruction under the yoke of James Gunn.
The first post-credits scene of ‘Shazam! The fury of the gods’ starts with two old acquaintances of the fans of the Distinguished Competition and, more specifically, of those who enjoyed the fantastic series ‘El Pacificador’. These are none other than the agents Emilie Harcourt and John Economoswho are taking a walk while discussing a potential new recruit.
When they arrive at their destination, they find, as expected, the good old Shazam charging bottles with a bolt of lightning, and they ask him if he would be interested in joining a supergroup. following the running gag In the movie, Billy assumes it’s the Justice League and makes the occasional lewd comment about Wonder Woman before Hartcourt and Economos point out that they’re referring to the Justice League. justice society.
As Gunn commented On twitterhad no relation to the filming of the scene, which was shot while he was working on ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3’, but previously, the filmmaker expressed his intention to continue collaborating with the actor in future projects. Now it only remains to be seen if this post-credits will result in a third ‘Shazam!’, in a crossover with the JSA or the characters from ‘Peacemaker’ or will end up falling on deaf ears. I have it clear: my kingdom for a more risqué version of the character.
The second post-credit scene of ‘The Fury of the Gods’ serves as a sequel to the first one that was screened together with ‘Shazam!’ original. At that time, we saw how the villain of the show, the Dr Sivanahe was imprisoned in his cell and received a visit from Mr. Mind and, on this occasion, the dynamic is repeated with a fragment very similar to its predecessor.
Again, the super-intelligent talking worm stops by to see good old Thaddeus, who reproaches him for being late, only to receive in response the excuse that he needs to do one more thing before he can carry out his plan. Does this mean that the initial idea for ‘Shazam 2!’ was to bring Sivana back together with Mr. Mind and it has ended up being postponed? Will we see both villains in James Gunn and Peter Safran’s DC Universe? Only time will tell.
