The Shazam ensemble makes a comeback in the upcoming film, which features the Daughters of Atlas as a group of fearsome DC villains. They are highly furious deities that hate how human youths are given godlike powers like candy, led by Helen Mirren as Hespera.
The comedy movie shenanigans invariably result in an epic super-powered clash. For more information on what we thought of Shazam 2, see our review. Let’s examine how the most recent DC film concludes and what it implies for the future of the DC Universe as we discuss the Shazam 2 finale.
Shazam 2 Ending Explained
Billy makes a sacrifice in the Shazam 2 epilogue to prevent Earth from turning into a hideous garden of the gods. The assistance of Wonder Woman is then used to resuscitate him.
As Shazam 2’s third act nears, Lucy Liu’s dragon-riding baddie Kalypso is firmly in command. Her other sister Hespera (Helen Mirren) seemed to have been murdered by being stabbed with the dragon’s tail, while her newly heroic sister Anthea (Rachel Zegler) had her god abilities taken away.
She is committed to transforming Philadelphia—which is already protected by a forcefield dome and teeming with fantastical creatures—into a garden of the gods. Shazam then succeeds in obtaining her magical, energy-draining staff and seduces her in Citizens Bank Park, a baseball stadium. Hesperia is resurrected, and she joins the heroes in shrinking the forcefield so that it merely protects the stadium.
Shazam is able to “charge up” the staff using both his own and the dragon’s abilities. After pausing to say a tearful farewell to his family, he then launches the staff into the dragon’s heart while yelling the magic phrase. Hespera and Kalypso are both destroyed in the ensuing enormous explosion that is trapped within the forcefield dome, along with the garden of the gods.
Billy’s distressed family discovers him in his teenage body, and startlingly, it appears that he has actually passed away. The Wizard (Djimon Hounsou) says that there are no more gods to replenish the staff as the characters bury his body. Gal Gadot plays Wonder Woman in the cameo, which the company bizarrely decided to reveal in trailers.
She uses her power to revive the staff, regaining everyone’s superpowers and causing Shazam to emerge from the dead like a monster from a horror film. Nevertheless, Billy’s luck is not entirely in when Wonder Woman declines his invitation to a date.
