Adam Brody And Meagan Good Talk ‘Shazam! Fury of the Gods’, Hopes On Returning In The Future & More – Interview
Shazam! Fury of the Gods can now be seen on the big screen!
Recently, we had the incredible opportunity to sit down with two of the film’s stars, Adam Brody and Meagan Good, to discuss their roles in this exciting sequel. Both Brody and Good are no strangers to the world of film and television, with extensive resumes that span over two decades. From Brody’s breakout role in The O.C. to Good’s unforgettable performance in Think Like a Man, these actors have proven time and time again that they are versatile and talented performers.
These talented actors shared their insights into the making of the film, their experience working with the cast and crew, and their personal perspectives on the superhero genre.
Check out the full interview with Adam Brody & Meagan Good below:
While both Brody and Good had smaller roles in the first Shazam! film, their characters were integral to the plot. Brody played the adult superhero Freddy Freeman, while Good portrayed Darla Dudley. However, in Shazam! Fury of the Gods, these characters are given more screen time and a chance to truly shine. With the focus on expanding the Shazam! universe and exploring the complexities of the superhero family, Brody and Good’s characters are given the opportunity to be more fully developed. This allows for a deeper exploration of their motivations, personalities, and relationships.
I asked them both what it was like to be back for the sequel in full force and Good said, “I think we both were like, ‘Please, let’s do number two’, and so to come back and for us all to know each other and spend time together, it was literally like coming back to summer camp. And we all have great relationships and Zach’s house was like the lair in real life. We hung out there and went swimming and barbecued and we rode birds together.”
Brody followed with, “It was just nice to know everybody and go back to people you like and are comfortable with and a role you enjoy, and get to do it on a bigger scale this time for longer. It was wonderful. It was a very enjoyable experience.”
This also isn’t their first time working with director David F. Sandberg who helmed Shazam! in 2019. His ability to balance the comedic and action-packed elements of the film made him the natural choice to helm the sequel, Shazam! Fury of The Gods, another exciting addition to the superhero genre.
Fury of the Gods features a talented cast of actors who bring their unique personalities and skills to the film’s ensemble. Returning to the cast is Zachary Levi, who plays the adult superhero version of Billy Batson, alongside his younger counterpart, played by Asher Angel. The film also sees the return of Jack Dylan Grazer as Freddy Freeman, Faithe Herman as Darla Dudley, Ian Chen as Eugene Choi and Jovan Armand as Pedro Pena.
Joining the cast for the sequel are Helen Mirren, Lucy Liu, and Rachel Zegler as Hespera, Kalypso, and Anthea, respectively. Additionally, the film features other adult versions of the Shazam family, including Good as Darla’s superhero alter ego, Grace Caroline Currey as Mary, Ross Butler as adult Eugene and D.J. Cotrona as adult Pedro.
