We’re only a few months away from the premiere of Shazam! Anger of the Gods, the highly anticipated sequel to DC’s action comedy hit. One of the highlights of the first movie was definitely the dynamic between the Shazam! Family – something that will surely only get further explored now that all kids have been given superpowers. In addition to the on-screen events of Anger of the gods, it looks like the family is about to take the spotlight in the comics too, with the help of some of the film’s cast. On Friday, DC officially announced Shazam! Fury of the Gods Special: Shazamily Matters #1, a gigantic 96-page tie-in comic coming weeks early Anger of the gods will be released in theaters and will be written in part by the film’s cast and screenwriter.
To the writers Shazamily matters include Zachary Levi (Shazam), Grace Caroline Currey (Mary/superhero Mary), Ross Butler (superhero Eugene), DJ Cotrona (superhero Pedro), Adam Brody (superhero Freddy), Faithe Herman (Darla), screenwriter Henry Gayden, as well as Colleen Doran, Josh Trujillo, Tim Seeley and more. The art for the special is provided by Freddie E. Williams II and Andrew Drilon, and a number of different covers are also available. You can check out the full invitation and some covers below.
