Shazam! sequel set for April 2022
Shazam! 2 is officially set to take flight!
New Line’s sequel is confirmed for an April 1, 2022 release, kicking off a trio of DCEU films slated for 2022 including, Andy Muschietti’s The Flash - July 1 - and James Wan’s Aquaman 2 - December 16.
Zachary Levi is expected to return along with director David Sandberg and co-writer Henry Gayden. Asher Angel celebrated the news by Tweeting this pic of Billy Batson's alter-ego (Levi) and oncscreen foster brother played by Jack Dylan Grazer. It will be interesting to see if Sandberg and Gayden choose to stick with the same actors who played Billy’s foster family-turned-Shazam fam. I mean, Adam Brody and Meagan Good were kind of perfect as Freddy Freemon and Darla Dudley's respective alter-egos.
No additional plot details have been revealed however you have to figure Mr. Mind will factor in a more prominent role along with the return of - the now incarcerated - Dr. Sivana played by Mark Strong. And now that Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam is set to release December 22, 2021 you have to wonder how New Line and DC will connect canonical dots leading up to 2022's big release!
