Shazam! Fury of the Gods is moving with the speed of Mercury into theaters and everything about the sequel is looking pretty great. Everything we’ve seen from the film so far from the film has been pretty cool and hopefully the film is received the same way as its predecessor. Shazam! Fury of the Gods will give the adult counterparts of the “Shazamily” more screen time than the first, with the exception of Mary (Grace Caroline Currey). For the first film, the people behind the scenes of the movie decided to use an older actor for Mary Marvel, but opted to use Currey in a dual role. With the actress playing both Mary Bromfield and superhero Marvel, that means she gets to spend time with most of the cast and that gave her a bit of insight into how different the personalities are between the older and younger actors. During a new interview with ComicBook.com’s Brandon Davis, Currey revealed that the older actors act younger than their child counterparts.
“I would say it’s an advantage. I mean, it’s really fun to get to work with everybody and it was really funny to see, you know, okay. I’ve got this mentality of who the kids are,” Currey revealed. “I’ve worked with them the most on the first one and then working with their adult counterparts and seeing the essence of the kids there, but also them being, they act younger than the kids. So I was like, oh wow, okay. And then I work with the kids. I was like, they’re so serious, kids are so serious, okay, we’re serious, we’re serious actors right now and then the adults is like having a great time.”
