Leading man Zachary Levi has been hyping the upcoming Shazam! Fury of the Gods recently, teasing that the DC sequel will be better than the first film, and now one of his co-stars stars has offered their own high praise for the upcoming movie.
Rachel Zegler took to her Twitter account after CinemaCon to thank the event for being a great host. Warner Bros. debuted a trailer for those in attendance, and many had positive things to say. Possibly none as high as Zegler, who states that Shazam! Fury of the Gods is a “cinematic masterpiece.” She also notes that the film will be heavily inspired by family, much like the beloved first entry.
In the tweet, the West Side Story star says, “the thing about Shazam 2 is that it’s a cinematic masterpiece that will subvert expectations of superhero films and emphasize the importance of both blood AND chosen family and the way we view the world when we cultivate love in our hearts despite our circumstances.”
