The story takes place a few years after the original film, and you can really tell by the way that the young actors have grown up. Despite sharing the powers of Shazam, Billy Batson (Asher Angel and Zachary Levi) and his superhuman foster siblings are not a cohesive unit. Even the people of Philadelphia think that they are walking disasters. And that brings them some unwanted attention from the Daughters’ of Atlas.
These children of a Titan include Helen Mirren as Hespera, Lucy Liu as Kalypso, and Rachel Zegler as Anthea. Hespera and Kalypso want to take back the powers from the Shazam family that they view as rightfully belonging to them. That sets the stage for most of the superhero conflict in the film. It’s fine for what it is, but it is probably not good enough to merit another sequel.
