Shazam! 2 Director Confirms Cameo From First Movie

Despite her character's very permanent death in Shazam!, actress Lotta Losten will return for another small part in Shazam!: Fury of the Gods, the film's director confirmed last night on his Instagram story. Losten, who is married to director David F. Sandberg, always appears in films he directs. A fan last night asked whether her death in the first DC film meant that Shazam! 2 would be the first movie without Losten appearing in any role, but the filmmaker shot the idea down. How is he going to pull that off? Well, the same way any other DC character might.

No, no. Not resurrection! Just change the appearance a little and call it a whole different person!

"Lotta is in it," Sandberg confirmed. "Yeah, she died in [Shazam!], but lose the glasses, change the hair and BAM! Totally different character. Hey, it works for Clark Kent."

That Clark Kent nod is likely to get the internet back on its favorite pastime: speculating about whether Henry Cavill might reappear as Superman in the film. The character -- not played by Cavill, but by a stunt performer -- appeared in the final scene from Shazam!, but only from the neck down and as a gag. Fans have since lobbied to see more of him -- literally -- in the sequel, although Sandberg has made no indication that would actually happen.

You can check out the official synopsis for Sandberg's Shazam! follow-up below.

From New Line Cinema comes Shazam! Fury of the Gods, which continues the story of teenage Billy Batson who, upon reciting the magic word "SHAZAM!," is transformed into his adult Super Hero alter ego, Shazam.
