'Shazam: Fury Of The Gods' Reactions Are Praising the Film

The first batch of Shazam: Fury of the Gods reactions have hit social media and are praising the movie.

Again, worth a mention is that the first reactions seem to be always positive (they were for Marvel’s bomb Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania), so bear that in mind.

The same batch of reviewers also gave high scores to John Wick 4.

The first movie was pretty fun and gets better with additional views, so hopefully, Fury of the Gods is fun, as well.

Check out the reactions below.

The new head of the DCU also chimed in.

“I love it, it’s a complete blast. Zachary Levi & David F. Sandberg & Rachel Zegler & the whole crew killed it,” tweeted Gunn.

What is the movie about?

Warner Bros. released an updated synopsis offering the following details.

This insanely action-packed Super Hero sequel brings even more excitement, adventure and comedy, along with all-new realms, bigger threats, monsters and mythical creatures to our heroes. Now fully bestowed with the powers of the gods, Billy Batson and his fellow foster kids are still learning how to juggle teenage life with having adult Super Hero alter egos. But when the Daughters of Atlas, a vengeful trio of ancient gods, arrive on Earth in search of the magic stolen from them long ago, Billy—aka Shazam—and his family are thrust into a battle for their superpowers, their lives, and the fate of their world. But can a bunch of teenagers actually save the day? Does Billy even want to…?
