Asher Angel has confirmed that the Shazam sequel is set to begin filming soon.
During an interview with ET, Angel was asked, “Have you guys started filming [Shazam!]?” The actor replied, “Um no, but we start filming really soon so I’m super excited.”
Despite his eagerness to get back into the superhero game, Angel said that he hasn’t read the script yet. DC is keeping it “under lock and key” for now. This prompted the interviewer to ask if Angel or his co-star, Zachary Levi was more likely to accidentally leak spoilers. Angel admitted that he’d likely be the one to let any information slip.
Details on the upcoming Shazam sequel are slim, but fans can expect more of what they loved from the original film. For one, fans can expect the iconic Shazam family to return on the big screen and hopefully play a much larger role. Beyond that, knowing that Black Adam is on its way, fans can expect tons of references to the Shazam villain.
Directed by David F. Sandberg, 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. The film is now available on Blu-ray and digital.
