Zachary Levi returned as teenager turned superhero Billy Batson in Shazam! Fury of the Gods, the latest adventure from DC Comics. The film sees the red-suited hero team up with the rest of the Shazam family to face one new threat: the nefarious Daughters of Atlas, played by Helen Mirren, Lucy Liu and Rachel Zegler. As fans of cinecomics know better stay to see the credits of a Marvel and DC film because there are always one or more more or less useful post-credit scenes. Shazam! Fury of the Gods it has two, but what do they want to tell us?

Justice League or Justice Society?

There first scene post credit takes place mid-credits and features two familiar faces walking through the woods. Jennifer Holland and Steve Agee reprise their Peacemaker roles as Agents Emilia Harcourt and John Economos who, on behalf of Amanda Waller (Viola Davis), go to recruit Billy for the Justice Society. The hero eagerly agrees, thinking the two are talking about the Justice League. The last we heard of the Justice Society was in Black Adams and, fascinatingly, this is the first official confirmation of the fact that Shazam! And Black Adams they are connected. The legendary superhero team made its big-screen debut last year, when Waller recruited members for the team (including Aldis Hodge’s Hawkman, Pierce Brosnan’s Doctor Fate, Quintessa Swindell’s Cyclone, and Noah Centineo’s Atom Smasher). . Those heroes then faced Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam.

Dr. Sivana and Mister Mind

The second post-credit scene it actually calls back the one it closed Shazam! in 2019. Mark Strong returns as the original villain Dr Sivana, still imprisoned after trying to destroy Philadelphia in the first film. Once again, he comes face to face with a giant talking caterpillar (voiced by director David Sandberg), who promises to work with him. That caterpillar is the comic book villain Mister Mind, which first appeared in the end credits scene of the first film. Mister Mind is one of the most evil villains Of Shazam, dating back to 1943 and in the comics he takes the form of a tiny but mighty caterpillar who has telepathic powers and recruits all kinds of villains to help him take over the world. After its appearance in the credits in the first Shazam!, many fans thought Mister Mind would be the sequel’s main villain. Sandberg said his initial plan was to include Mister Mind in Fury of the Gods, but decided instead to cut it to give more space to the Daughters of Atlas. “We’re working on something, but it still takes some time,” said the director.
