Despite the very permanent death of his character in Shazam!actress Lotta Losten will return for another small role in Shazam!: Fury of the Gods, the director of the film confirmed last night in his Instagram story. Losten, who is married to director David F. Sandberg, always appears in the films she directs. A fan asked last night if her death in the first DC movie meant that Shazam! two it would be the first film without Losten appearing in any role, but the filmmaker rejected the idea. How is he going to achieve that? Well, the same way any other DC character would.
Nerd. Not the resurrection! Just change the appearance a bit and call him a completely different person!
“Lotta is in on this,” Sandberg confirmed. “Yes, she died in [Shazam!], but he loses his glasses, changes his hair and BAM! Totally different character. Hey, it works for Clark Kent.”

That nod from Clark Kent is likely to send the internet back to its favorite pastime: speculating on whether Henry Cavill might reappear as Superman in the movie. The character, played not by Cavill but by a stunt double, appeared in the final scene of Shazam!, but only from the neck down and as a gag. Since then, fans have pushed to see more of him, literally, in the sequel, though Sandberg has given no indication that would actually happen.
