Asher Angel's young Billy Batson and Zachary Levi's Shazam portrayal scored big both in the box office and in the hearts of audiences.

Now, fans are eagerly awaiting his return to the big screen.

Another character, the mystical wizard portrayed by Djimon Hounsou, was quite the fan-favorite.

Although the character died during the events of the movie, a recent set of leaked photos suggests that Djimon Hounsou's Wizard is returning for the sequel.

The Shazam! sequel will pit the titular superhero against one of the daughters of Atlas.

Because Altas is one of the sources of Shazam's power, the appearance of the Wizard makes sense.

For now, fans have a long wait ahead of them. Shazam! Fury of the Gods is set to premiere on June 2, 2023.
