'Shazam' Star Grace Currey ‘Didn’t Celebrate’ Her Promotion For 'Shazam: Fury Of The Gods,' Called The Move ‘Bittersweet’

The "Shazam!" franchise relies on family. Maybe even as much as The Fast & Furious, and we all know how important family is to Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel). But the close-knit cast that forms a foster family on screen actually did form the bonds of a family off screen, and so when one of the original "Shazam!" actors learned that they were going to replace a cast mate, the news .of the promotion was, in her own words, “bittersweet.” In the first "Shazam!" movie, young actors played the foster siblings of Billy Batson (Asher Angel). But in the end of the movie, older Billy (Zachary Levi) was able to divide his powers up throughout his foster family, creating new superheroes played by different actors.
