Shazam! 2 Could Be Delayed


Shazam! 2 could be delayed says director David F. Sandberg, which would join a long list of movies and TV shows impacted by the coronavirus.

On Wednesday, Sandberg held a “quarantine watch party” on Twitter for the first film where he showed off some cool footage and spoke about the sequel.

“Well, we’ll see how long this goes, because I mean, we were going to start shooting this year. But, I mean, who knows how long this will go on? I mean, it feels like every movie gets delayed now, so we’ll see what happens with Shazam!” said Sandberg. “But so far, I’ve been working on the script. We can still do that, so that’s being done and then, yeah, we’ll just see in a couple of months how it looks, you know?”

Shazam! 2 is still a long way off – two years – so David F. Sandberg and Zachary Levi look to have a lot of time to finish the movie, that is assuming if production does gets pushed back that it doesn’t interfere with anyone’s schedule.

Shazam! 2 is due out April 1, 2022 also starring Jack Dylan Grazer as Freddy and Asher Angel as Billy Batson.
