While Shazam! was not a box office peak, especially compared to its other DCEU counterparts like Aquaman the amount of traction and buzz generated by the David F. Sandberg superhero flick must have been enough to grant a sequel.
Shazam! Fury of the gods will pick up where the first film left off, with Zachary Levi’s main character and the rest of his companions working to appease the mythological and divine figures that fuel their story. This next entry, which will also bring Asher Angel and Jack Dylan Grazer back in their respective roles as younger versions of Billy Batson and Freddy Freeman, is currently in production and is slated for release in 2023.
