Is there a famous DCEU character in the sequel who isn’t a member of the Shazam Family?
Naturally, when it comes to future DC films featuring known characters, The Flash has been the buzz of the town, especially considering Ben Affleck and Michael Keaton will reprise their roles as Batman. Shazam!, on the other hand, seems to be the case. Fury of the Gods might possibly include a returning DCEU figure. Rachel Zegler, the first newcomer to the Shazam! sequel, may have hinted that we’ll see Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman again.
Rachel Zegler didn’t explicitly state that Wonder Woman would appear in Shazam! In reaction to reports that the Amazonian warrior may appear in the DC film Fury of the Gods, the actress told Empire Magazine (via Fandom):
I’m not going to reveal much, but we didn’t meet for the first time when shooting Snow White. Rachel Zegler is referring to Disney’s planned live-action rendition of Snow White and the Seven Dwarves, in which she will portray the title character and Gal Gadot will play the Evil Queen. Last year, Zegler made her cinematic debut in Steven Spielberg’s version of West Side Story, and Shazam! Fury of the Gods is her next project. So, unless Zegler is talking to her and Gadot meeting in an intimate context, it seems that Zegler is implying that Wonder Woman will appear in Fury of the Gods… without really offering 100% confirmation.
While Wonder Woman and Shazam aren’t as close as Batman and Superman or the Flash and Green Lantern, they do share a lot of comic book history from their time on the Justice League and Justice Society. Plus, the original Shazam! film had a Superman appearance (although not portrayed by Henry Cavill), so it’s not like Fury of the Gods pulling this off would be a strange decision. In fact, considering their relationship to the Olympian Gods, some of whom the Shazam Family members take their strength from in superhero form, I’d say Wonder Woman’s appearance makes even more sense.
It’s unlikely that we’ll find out whether Shazam! Until the film is released, Fury of the Gods contains Wonder Woman, so we know it’s worth keeping a look out for her. Although we last saw Gal Gadot’s version of the Themysciran princess in Wonder Woman 1984 in 2020, her most recent appearance in the DCEU was in Justice League (whatever version you want), when she faced Steppenwolf and his Paradeom army with Superman, Batman, Flash, Aquaman, and Cyborg. Gadot has already been cast in Wonder Woman 3, which will be written and directed by Patty Jenkins.
In the meanwhile, Shazam! Fury of the Gods will be released on December 16th, and will feature Helen Mirren’s Hespera and Lucy Liu’s Kalypso confronting at least two daughters of Atlas. Although director David F. Sandberg had some fun yesterday with the bogus casting announcement of Zegler portraying the anthropomorphic tiger Tawky Tawny, there’s still no indication on the name of Zegler’s role other that she’s also one of Atlas’ daughters.
Sigourney Weaver is coming back for Avatar 2 CRAZY!
In the first Avatar, Weaver’s scientist character died, but now she’s back as the protagonists’ adopted Na’vi daughter.
We were all surprised when we heard about 17 billion years ago that Sigourney Weaver would be back for James Cameron’s Avatar sequels (even more so than with the idea of there being multiple Avatar sequels). But now that we know how Weaver is going to come back, we’re even more confused.
Empire magazine has said that Weaver will play a completely different character in Avatar: The Way of Water. In the first movie, she played Dr. Grace Augustine, the creator of the Human-Na’vi switcheroo Avatar Program, who died at the end. And no, it’s not a human. It’s Jake and Neytiri’s daughter, who is about to turn 16.
Weaver will play Kiri, Jake and Neytiri’s adopted daughter. It looks like we’ll meet a lot of Jake and Neytiri’s family in The Way of Water. Weaver told Empire what it was like to play a digitized blue teenager, “I think we all pretty much remember how we felt when we were that age.” “Oh, yes, I do. When I was 11, I was 5’10” or 5’11” tall. I was sure Kiri would feel uncomfortable a lot of the time. She wants to find out who she is. When Jim gave me that task, I was thrilled.
Now, adults play children all the time, especially in the world of voice acting, and at least one of the photos Empire released of Kiri makes it look like Weaver will also show up as Dr. Augustine again in some way, probably through old footage. But knowing that the Na’vi are mostly brought to life by fancy mocap rigs, it will be strange to see Weaver’s physical performance put on a teenager. Even though he is a blue alien teen with long arms and legs, he is still a teen.
The movie Avatar: The Way of Water will come out in December 2022.
Disney will show new scenes from “Avatar: The Way of Water”
Disney started its CineEurope presentation in Barcelona today with 12 minutes of footage from July’s Marvel fourquel Thor: Love and Thunder. Throughout the show, Disney showed trailers and looks at its other upcoming movies, including four never-before-seen scenes from James Cameron’s Avatar: The Way of Water.
Before the Thor footage, Disney’s Head of Global Theatrical Distribution Tony Chambers talked about the importance of immersive storytelling and the studio’s “robust, diverse slate.” This was followed by about 60 minutes of footage that was introduced by EMEA Head of Theatrical Distribution Nick Rush and EMEA Head of Studio Marketing Lee Jury.
There were prerecorded messages from people like Marvel boss Kevin Feige, who said, “It feels like we’re just getting started, even after 14 years.” As he introduced the Love And Thunder scenes, Thor star Chris Hemsworth said he wished he was in Barcelona, where the sangria “always tastes better.”
Harrison Ford sent a video for Lucasfilm’s Indiana Jones 5, saying that it had been 13 years since the last movie and that it was “time to put on the fedora and crack the whip.”
We also saw parts of Haunted Mansion, Pixar’s Elemental and Strange World, and the ensemble Amsterdam, which was directed by David O. Russell for New Regency.
Sam Mendes sent a video about Empire Of Light by Searchlight. The director of 1917 said that after making that movie, he wrote this one during lockdown. He said it was a “extremely personal story” about music, movies, and finding love in strange places.
Rebecca Kearey, the international head of Searchlight, showed a trailer for See How They Run, which stars Sam Rockwell and Saoirse Ronan, and a teaser for The Banshees of Inisherin, which stars Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson, directed by Martin McDonagh. Searchlight also showed the first scene of Chevalier, which is about the son of an African slave and a French plantation owner who grows up to be a famous composer in France.
The next movie by Thor director Taika Waititi, Next Goal Wins, got an eight-minute sneak peek. The movie is about the American Samoa soccer team. In 2001, they lost to Australia 31-0, which was the worst loss in World Cup history. Michael Fassbender takes over as their new coach.
Disney’s show ended with a visit from Avatar producer Jon Landau, who flew from New Zealand to Barcelona to talk about the next movie in the series. He said that Avatar: The Way of Water was in the final stages of post-production and that it was important to be in Barcelona “to show our support for the exhibition community.”
Landau said that the strength of James Cameron’s scripts is that they have universal themes. “There is nothing more relatable than family,” he said before showing a message from Cameron.
Cameron from New Zealand said that the people working on Avatar were “pushing the limits even further… Every shot is made for the biggest screen and best resolution that can be achieved… I think this is what people want.” He also said, “Our business is not going away.”
Sigourney Weaver Reveals Her Unconventional Role in ‘Avatar: The Way of Water’
Weaver will portray Jake and Neytiri’s adoptive child.
Many pondered what type of role Sigourney Weaver would have in the sequel to James Cameron’s Avatar after the death of her character, Dr. Grace Augustine, who was the leader of the Avatar Program in the previous film. Finally, in an Empire Magazine exclusive, Weaver shared insights about the role she will portray in Avatar: The Way of Water, as well as a new photograph from the film.
Weaver announced to Empire Magazine that she would play Kiri, the adoptive daughter of Jake Sully (Sam Worthington) and Neytiri (Zoe Saldaa), in the film. “I believe we all remember what we were experiencing as teens,” Weaver told Empire Magazine exclusively. “I most definitely do. When I was 11, I was 5′ 10″ or 5′ 11″. I had a strong feeling Kiri would be uncomfortable a lot of the time. She’s trying to figure out who she is. Jim’s assignment of that task excited me.”
A fresh picture, which adds to the character’s mystery, has also been unveiled, hinting at some type of link that Kiri would have with Grace. Kiri is seen inside a lab, staring at a monitor with a recording of Grace on it. Despite not being biologically connected to Jake and Neytiri, Kiri seems to have human traits that other Na’vi do not have, such as five digits and eyebrows, adding to the character’s mystery.
With an obvious link between the two, as well as both characters being performed by the same actor, viewers can only guess on how significant Kiri’s involvement will be in the plot. The character will also appear on a subscriber-exclusive cover of Empire Magazine, which depicts her swimming underwater appreciating Pandora’s aquatic life, as shown in the first teaser.
Weaver and Cameron will work together again for Avatar: The Way of Water, having previously played Ellen Ripley in Aliens and Grace in the first Avatar film. Along with Weaver, Stephen Lang will reprise his role as Colonel Miles Quaritch, the man responsible for Grace’s death, in the sequel. Quaritch, like Weaver’s character, perished in the first film, fueling curiosity regarding his participation in Avatar: The Way of Water. While the roles of both actors remain unknown, fan speculation may continue until the highly anticipated film is released later this year.
On December 16, Avatar: The Way of Water will be released exclusively in cinemas.
