Shazam 2 Production Start Slated for Mid-Summer 2020!
Warner Bros. isn’t wasting any time with Shazam 2. The first movie proved to be a solid hit for the studio last year and stands as one of the most critically-embraced DCEU movies to date. Read on as production already has a date slated…
CelebNMovies247.com reports that Shazam 2 is set to begin filming in July. David F. Sandberg, who helmed the previous movie, is expected to return to the director’s chair.
And, yes, Zachary Levi will be back in the red suit and cape sooner rather than later, as it looks like cameras are getting ready to roll on the superhero sequel this summer. Asher Angel will also return as the young Billy Batson, who transforms into the hero.
It was revealed in April of 2019, just as Shazam was hitting theaters, that writer Henry Gayden would be returning to pen the sequel.
As for the plotline of Shazam 2, nothing has been revealed as of yet. Though, this makes sense since Asher Angel said in a previous interview with ET Live in January.
I think we start filming really soon, so I’m super excited… I haven’t read the script yet.
What is interesting is that another long-awaited DC project is set to begin filming around the same time in the form of Black Adam, which stars Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.
Black Adam is being billed as the anti-hero, which also means this will more than likely be his introduction into the DCEU.
Now as we previously reported Black Adam will NOT be the main villain in Shazam 2. He is set to show up in Shazam 3, but that doesn’t mean he won’t have a cameo in a post-credit scene to set up 3. See Black Adam was supposed to appear in Shazam as the villain, as he’s one of the hero’s main antagonists in the comics. Plans changed, and Johnson got a solo movie instead, but the plan is for the two forced to eventually meet on screen.
Black Adam is set to hit theaters in December 2021 and Shazam 2 is set to hit theaters on April 1, 2022.
Let’s not forget that The Suicide Squad will also be in the mix of things as well with Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn at the helm.
