Mary Marvel and Mary Bromfield to be played by One Actress

May 19, 2023

In the new DC film Shazam! Fury of the Gods, many unexpected changes will occur, which deviate from the previous film in the franchise titled Shazam! One of the most significant differences is that Mary Bromfield and her alter ego, Mary Marvel, will be played by one and not two actresses, making her the only hero in Shazam! Fury of the Gods to not have an alternate actress/actor. According to CBR, the film’s director David F. Sandberg stated that the character’s transformation will be aided by makeup to show a distinction between the two versions of Mary.

Actress Grace Caroline Currey plays Mary Bromfield and Mary Marvel. Arguably one of the most unique and complex of the DC Comics canon, Mary Marvel is a costumed vigilante and a member of the Marvel Family, a team of heroes with whom Captain Marvel is linked to. She is the alter ego of Mary Bromfield (aka Batson), the protective and devoted elder sister of Captain Marvel’s alternate personality, Billy Batson. Mary receives the wizard Shazam’s power, just like her brother, and must use the wizard’s name to change into Mary Marvel. Alongside her brother and Captain Marvel JR, Mary fights the forces of evil.

Shazam! Fury of the Gods is a follow-up to the 2019 film Shazam! starring Zachary Levi as Shazam and Asher Angel as Billy Batson. Levi and Angel return in Fury of the Gods, where Billy Batson and his foster siblings must stop the Daughters of Atlas from using a weapon that could annihilate the universe. To defeat them, the Marvels must first go on a quest to make peace with the Gods.

Shazam! Fury of the Gods hits theaters on Mar. 17.

Actress Grace Caroline Currey stars as Mary Marvel and Mary Bromfield in the upcoming DC movie Shazam! Fury of the Gods in theaters Mar. 17.

Currey was born in America on Jul. 17, 1996. An accomplished actress, Grace has starred in many films, such as a young Natalie Wood in the 2004 television miniseries The Mystery of Natalie Wood. A child actress, Currey’s first role was in the 2001 show That’s Life. In 2022, she starred in the hit thriller Fall, in which she played the character of Becky Connor.

In August 2022, MovieWeb was pleased to interview Ms. Currey and her co-star Virginia Gardner to discuss her role in Fall. Speaking of her time on the set, Currey talked with MovieWeb about a variety of topics, including the harsh conditions she and her co-stars faced when filming: “There were days when we couldn’t film because the wind was over 60 miles an hour. So, it wasn’t safe for us to be up that high when the winds were that crazy.”

In addition to being an accomplished actress, Currey is also a dancer. She also writes and will lend her talents to the upcoming comic Shazam! Fury of the Gods Special: Shazamily Matters.
