Feb 10, 2020

Exclusive: DC is making progress on the ‘Shazam’ sequel, as I’ve learned that filming is currently set to get underway this July.

David Sandberg is returning to direct after the first film made $300 million at the world wide box office, roughly 3.6x more than its budget. Zachary Levi and Asher Angel will also reprise their roles of Shazam and Billy Batson, respectively.

Angel revealed back in January that production would start shortly. “I think we start filming really soon, so I’m super excited,” he told ET Live.

Meanwhile, ‘Black Adam,’ a spin-off about Shazam’s arch nemesis, and starring Dwayne Johnson as the titular character, will join ‘Shazam! 2’ in filming this July. This DC outing will hit theaters on December 22, 2021.

‘Shazam! 2’ will release on April 1, 2022.
