It’s time to say that magic word, once again.
Warner Bros. has announced that the sequel to the hit DC film Shazam! will make its thunderous debut in theatres on April 1, 2022.
Opening on April 3 of this year, Shazam! was a commercial and critical hit for WB and New Line Cinema, grossing $364 million against a budget of $80-$100 million.
Zachary Levi will return as the titular hero. Much of the main cast is also expected to return, such as Asher Angel as Shazam’s alter ego Billy Batson. David F. Sandberg will be back as director. Henry Gayden, who co-wrote the first script, is penning the latest draft.
The film’s release date it also notable as it is a mere 4 months after WB releases the Shazam! spinoff film, Black Adam, starring Dwayne Johnson. Levi and Johnson are set to square off in a future Shazam! sequel.
