SHAZAM! came through the feature film scene light a lightning bolt….ok bad pun I’ll stop. But none the less after the amazing feature debut of the big cheese starring Ashar Angel as Billy Batson and Zachary Levi as SHAZAM.
Levi started the panel in a “SHAZOOM” and attempted to take fan questions to none of which he could actually answering. But then he brings in Asher Angel, Jack Dylan Grazer, Megan Good and Faithe Herman. After Zachary says that he had made his own Zach cut of the film, director David F. Sandberg showed up.
In a surprise legendary comedian SINBAD joins the panel and jokes about the theory that he was in a movie (that didnt exist) called SHAZAM. Followed up by Adam Brody we then get the official title of the sequel and its SHAZAM:FURY OF THE GODS.
Just say the word, the sequel to Warner Bros and New Line Cinema’s hit superhero film, SHAZAM! will be striking back into theaters on April of 2022 with SHAZAM! 2. Zachary Levi is set to reprise his role as the big cheese, the adult version of Billy Batson. the film’s original screenplay writer Henry Gayden has been tapped to write the DC superhero movie’s sequel.
The first SHAZAM! made a shock at the box office for Levi, director David F. Sandberg and Peter Safran as it grossed $140 million domestically and $364 worldwide.
SHAZAM! starred Asher Angel as Billy Batson, an orphan who runs away from foster home to foster home in search of his mother whom he was separated from as a toddler. He is eventually bestowed magical superpowers unto him by a wizard (Djimon Hounsou), that transforms him into his full potential in adult form (Zachary Levi). He must battle Doctor Thaddeus Sivana (Mark Strong) and stop the Seven Deadly Sins from reeking havoc and destruction upon the world. Billy is also aided in this task by his foster brother, Freddy Freeman (Jack Dylan Grazer) and their other foster siblings.
It is not yet been reported if Asher, Strong, Grazer as well the other foster children or even their adult counterparts will be returning to the film.
Something else worth nothing, Warner Bros just the day before announced that BLACK ADAMstarring Dwayne Johnson will be released in December of 2021. We have to wait and see if the end of that film will tie directly into this sequel.

Well the question of who will be the kid side of the Childlike superhero SHAZAM has been answered.
Asher Angel has been cast as Billy Batson opposite Zachary Levi in New Line’s DC superhero film “Shazam!,” as the story broke from Variety.
SHAZAM! follows a boy (Angel) who can transform into an adult superhero by uttering the magic word “Shazam!” in case you were what wondering what SHAZAM stands for. It is an acronym of the ancient gods and historical figures Solomon, Hercules, Atlas, Zeus, Achilles, and Mercury, .
Mark Strong is in talks for the role of the villain, & Grace Fulton is set to play one of Angel’s friends.
David F. Sandberg of “Lights Out” is directing, with a screenplay by Henry Gayden and Darren Lemke. “Annabelle: Creation’s” Peter Safran will produce.
In case you’re wondering where does this next superhero fall on the film production slate. “Shazam!” will be the next DC Cinematic Universe movie to begin shooting, before “Flashpoint,” (which still.doesnt habe a director) the Joss Whedon-directed “Batgirl,” and the “Suicide Squad” sequel, which Gavin O’Connor just came aboard to helm. There is also going to be standalone film about Black Adam, Shazam’s arch nemesis. Dwayne Johnson is attached to play Black Adam in that pic. But as of now is not set to be in the shale film only his own solo Black Adam project.
