Shazam! Fury of the Gods held its world premiere earlier this evening in London, and the social media embargo has now lifted.

As so often tends to be the case with any major studio superhero movie, these first reactions are (mostly) very positive, with many praising the action, humor, family drama and performances from the new and returning cast members.

We did spot a couple of more negative Tweets, but they've since been deleted, possibly for containing spoilers!

At any rate, have a look at some reactions below, and we'll update as more come in. 

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.

From New Line Cinema comes Shazam! Fury of the Gods, which continues the story of teenage Billy Batson who, upon reciting the magic word “SHAZAM!,” is transformed into his adult Super Hero alter ego, Shazam.

Shazam! Fury of the Gods stars returning cast members Zachary Levi (Thor: Ragnarok) as Shazam; Asher Angel (Andi Mack) as Billy Batson; Jack Dylan Grazer (It Chapter Two) as Freddy Freeman; Adam Brody (Promising Young Woman) as Super Hero Freddy; Ross Butler (Raya and the Last Dragon) as Super Hero Eugene; Meagan Good (Day Shift) as Super Hero Darla; D.J. Cotrona (G.I. Joe: Retaliation) as Super Hero Pedro; Grace Caroline Currey (Annabelle: Creation) as Mary Bromfield / Super Hero Mary; Faithe Herman (This Is Us) as Darla Dudley; Ian Chen (A Dog’s Journey) as Eugene Choi; Jovan Armand (Second Chances) as Pedro Pena; Marta Milans (White Lines) as Rosa Vasquez; Cooper Andrews (The Walking Dead) as Victor Vasquez; with Djimon Hounsou (A Quiet Place Part II) as Wizard.

Joining the cast are Rachel Zegler (West Side Story), with Lucy Liu (Kung Fu Panda franchise) and Helen Mirren (F9: The Fast Saga).

The superhero sequel is set to hit theaters on March 17, 2023.

Looks like it’ll be at least better than Antman. Though that’s not saying much…
tmp3 - 3/7/2023, 4:39 PM
well, if james gunn loves it...
tmp3 - 3/7/2023, 4:40 PM
@RorMachine - some of those reactions are troll tweets btw
MarkCassidy - 3/7/2023, 4:42 PM
@tmp3 - I know:)
WarMonkey - 3/8/2023, 7:46 AM
@RorMachine - Made me laugh so kudos to you LOL

*ShazamFuryOfTheGods is something the DCEU has not done before. Really fun and entertaining and it raises the stakes from the first movie. It’s very refreshing, similar to how your ass feels like when you’re using a bidet*

-gays and monsters

GhostDog - 3/7/2023, 4:44 PM
They really asking Gunn what he thought about the movie…
MCUKnight11 - 3/7/2023, 4:48 PM
@GhostDog - The fact these are just reactions which are always positive at first and that one of Drake's worst songs was used in the trailer still has me on the fence.
AmazingFILMporg - 3/7/2023, 4:53 PM
@MCUKnight11 -

Playing drake to convey a badass movie is just a bad sign😐
AmazingFILMporg - 3/7/2023, 4:46 PM
This film will be the years biggest flop. 200 million dollar budget and won't clear 500 million

Antman3, dungeons and dragons and Shazam will be the years biggest disasters
DarkModeDan - 3/7/2023, 4:50 PM
@AmazingFILMporg - Could you encourage your fellow porgs to support it? If every porg in the universe bought a ticket, would it be enough to save Shazam? 🤔
AmazingFILMporg - 3/7/2023, 4:51 PM
@DarkModeDan -

No because I'm the only porg left🥲
DarkModeDan - 3/7/2023, 5:07 PM
@AmazingFILMporg - Oh god, I'm so sorry. RIP literally every other porg ever.

RIP these movies too I guess. 🤣
regularmovieguy - 3/7/2023, 5:39 PM

Shazam has a 125 mil budget.

These days: "It's going to shift a lot of action figures".
TheHumanSpider2 - 3/7/2023, 5:28 PM
@BillyBatson1000 - "these days"? It has always been like this, this genre only exists to selo toys.

"Sell toys, Man, that's all these movies are about, selling [frick]ing toys", Jon Peters to Kevin Smith in 1998 when he was demanding Brainiac to have a sidekick.
BillyBatson1000 - 3/7/2023, 5:33 PM
@TheHumanSpider2 - (Sad faced) It's true ...
WarMonkey - 3/8/2023, 7:53 AM
@TheHumanSpider2 - Ya, I've actually been using toy sales to see how well the MCU and SW is doing for years now. There toys used to sell like hot-cakes, now they sit on shelves till they end up at bargain-bin stores for like 90% mark-down and still can't sell. Stores used to have entire aisles devoted to SW or MCU stuff now they get a small section.
marvel72 - 3/7/2023, 4:49 PM
Well I didn't like the first movie, so if it's more of the same, I don't think I will like this.

I can see it being better than Ant-Man 3.
ModHaterSLADE - 3/7/2023, 4:54 PM
First one was a good action comedy. I'm expecting more of the same.
Fares - 3/7/2023, 5:00 PM
Bro really asked the CEO of DC studios what he thinks about the movie 💀
thedrudo - 3/7/2023, 5:02 PM
Someone saying this is the most fun they've had at the movies is alarming.

And everyone should be banned from every saying a DC or Marvel project is unlike anything we have ever seen before. Has there ever been a time when that's actually true?
thedrudo - 3/7/2023, 5:03 PM
@thedrudo - *Ever. Bleh.
MarvelZombie616 - 3/7/2023, 5:09 PM
I liked the first movie.
They rushed it with making too many Shazams.

I am at a concert the day it starts and i will be watching Scream 6 & 65 this week and John Wick in 2 weeks, D&D and Manta, Manta 2 in 3 weeks.

So this will be the 2nd comic book movie in my lifetime i won't watch in cinemas (the first being Wonder Woman 1984).

I probably won't watch The Marvels either, i have been burned out by mediocre cbms lately.
narrow290 - 3/7/2023, 5:21 PM
Helen Mirren (F9: The Fast Saga). Why not Helen Mirren (Caligula) she's so hot..was anyway
TheHumanSpider2 - 3/7/2023, 5:26 PM
I'll watch next month on HBO Max
MyCoolYoung - 3/7/2023, 5:31 PM
Damn Gabriella. Every time I see this release date I think “damn this come out this soon?” And I don’t know why
bkmeijer1 - 3/7/2023, 5:38 PM
@MyCoolYoung - same. This movie is really like ForgetMeNot. As soon as I don't see or read it directly, I forget it
MyCoolYoung - 3/7/2023, 5:45 PM
@bkmeijer1 - and it’s so weird. It don’t seem like it’s been visible enough. Maybe the marketing was lite
bkmeijer1 - 3/7/2023, 5:55 PM
@MyCoolYoung - no it's definitely cursed.

It's been only fifteen minutes since making the previous comment, but when I saw you mentioned me in a comment I thought "oh hey, maybe he's saying something in The Last of Us thread again".

But yeah, it's also marketing. For some reason I keep thinking this is supposed to be released in April.
MyCoolYoung - 3/7/2023, 6:13 PM
@bkmeijer1 - I could’ve sworn it was April as well that’s weird. I do gotta reply in the last of us thread I was working at the time I read your comment
bkmeijer1 - 3/8/2023, 3:40 AM
@MyCoolYoung - think the first one released in April, so guess that might be it.
ObserverIO - 3/8/2023, 5:48 AM
@bkmeijer1 - What movie are you guys talking about again?
bkmeijer1 - 3/8/2023, 5:52 AM
@ObserverIO - that movie about the guy in a red suit that's supposed to be released this year. Think it also has a flying character in a blue suit.

And I think it's rumoured that Gadot's Wonder Woman will appear.
bkmeijer1 - 3/8/2023, 5:53 AM
@ObserverIO - that movie about the guy in a red suit that's supposed to be released this year. It also has a flying character in a blue suit and a Wonder Woman cameo. Although I think the latter is only rumoured.
ObserverIO - 3/8/2023, 10:32 AM
@bkmeijer1 - I legit forgot when I saw this reply. It really is a curse, lol...
ObserverIO - 3/8/2023, 10:32 AM
@ObserverIO - Even after reading the description, I was like "Santa Claus"?
bkmeijer1 - 3/8/2023, 11:18 AM
@ObserverIO - see! Knew I'm not the only one.

I was actually talking about The Flash though, I think...
