Warner Bros. has officially set the Shazam 2 release date for April 2022.
As shared by THR‘s Borys Kit, WB and DC are officially moving forward with the Shazam 2 release date set for April 1, 2022, but the release of the film will not be an April Fool’s Day joke. The release will see the sequel arrive in theaters almost exactly three years after the original film. With Levi back to star, it should be expected that Asher Angel will also return as Billy Batson.
Elsewhere in the world of Shazam, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s Black Adam finally received a release date of Dec. 22, 2021 after years of spinning its wheels. That film isn’t expected to include Zachary Levi’s Shazam or Asher Angel’s Billy Batson, but it is poised to introduce the Justice Society of America to the DC Extended Universe.
Now available on Digital HD, Blu-ray and 4K UHD, director David F. Sandberg’s Shazam! stars Asher Angel as Billy Batson, Zachary Levi as Shazam, Mark Strong as Dr. Thaddeus Sivana, Djimon Hounsou as the ancient wizard Shazam, Grace Fulton as Mary Bromfield, Jack Dylan Grazer as Freddy Freeman, Ian Chen as Eugene Choi, Jovan Armand as Pedro Peña, Faithe Herman as Darla Dudley, Cooper Andrews as Victor Vásquez and Marta Milans as Rosa Vásquez.
Shazam! 2 soars into theaters April 1, 2022.
