Once inside the Rock of Eternity, Shazam comes face to face with an old acquaintance…who is also a complete stranger. Confused? So is Billy! The questions keep piling up as the stakes mount, leaving him with an impossible life-and-death decision on which the futures of his best friend, the Teen Titans Academy, and the entirety of existence now hinges!
Neron returns to test Billy Batson’s resolve! Now confronted with the truth about fellow Titans Academy student Dane’s lineage, Billy Batson must decide whether he can trust the person who brought him to hell as they searched for the missing Rock of Eternity. But as the duo grows closer to the Rock and the power of Shazam, a new threat that Billy knows all too well emerges-Neron, the demonic lord of the underworld.
Hell is full of temptations and distractions as Billy Batson searches for the missing Rock of Eternity, alongside his guide from Teen Titans Academy, the mystical and mysterious Dane. Earth’s Mightiest Mortal must face demons and would-be kings of the underworld. But even with the power of Shazam, Billy finds himself outwitted and outmatched, until Dane reveals a secret that will change his relationship with Billy and the new Teen Titans Academy forever.
Billy Batson came to Titans Academy looking for answers. Why was the rest of his adopted family cut off from the power of Shazam? Why are his own powers becoming increasingly unreliable? The answers send Billy on an outrageous adventure that’ll not only change him but have an immense impact on the school and other students on Titans Island.
A look at the Shazam family in Shazam!: Fury of the Gods has been released giving us a look at the updated costumes the heroes will be wearing.
The designs are all much more in line with the “DC aesthetic” we’ve been seeing through films. What’s interesting is not just the more detailed costumes but also some color changes from the first film.
Check out below comparing the costumes from the first film and the anticipated sequel. What do you think of the updated costumes?
“SHAZAM!” With a single magic word, the powers of six ancient gods—the wisdom of Solomon, the strength of Hercules, the stamina of Atlas, the power of Zeus, the courage of Achilles and the speed of Mercury—are placed in the hands of teenage Billy Batson, transforming him into The World’s Mightiest Mortal! A new Shazam! four-issue mini-series from Tim Sheridan and Clayton Henry, spinning out of the pages of Teen Titans Academy, arrives July 20!
Billy Batson came to Titans Academy looking for answers, but so far has kept his Shazam! identity a secret from his new classmates. Why was the rest of his adopted family cut off from the power of Shazam!? Why are his own powers becoming increasingly unreliable? What has happened to the Rock of Eternity, where is the Wizard, and who can help Billy get his powers back to normal before these mysterious events turn into a full-blown crisis?
The answers send Billy on an outrageous adventure that’ll not only change him…but have an immense impact on the school and other students on Titans Island!

As part of is Music Monday, Mondo, in partnership with WaterTower Music, presents the premiere vinyl pressing of Benjamin Wallfisch‘s triumphant score for the 2019 superhero comedy SHAZAM!
Ben Wallfisch is one of the most incredible composers working today. He is a master of genre, but also impossible to pin down. His work on Blade Runner 2049 is a masterclass in modern sci-fi. He redefined the sound of terror with his scores for IT Chapters 1 & 2 and last year’s Invisible Man. To round the trifecta, though, he also has a playful side, which is no more present than in his ode to Williams and Goldsmith in SHAZAM! Just like the film, it is an immediate burst of energy, excitement, and full of 80’s filmmaking sincerity.
Pressed on 2x 180 colored vinyl (Disc 1 Shazam Red with yellow splatter, Disc 2 Smokey 8-Ball) and featuring all-new original artwork by Cathy Kwan.
