Shazam 2 is a sequel of the first Shazam which is a superhero movie released in 2019. The movie was directed and produced by David F. Sandberg and New Line Cinema repectively.
If you haven’t watched the first movie, you can skip this part and scroll down. Now the disclaimer is out of the way, Shazam is a movie that revolves around a fourteen-year-old boy named Billy Batson.
He arrives at another foster home and met with Freddy Freeman who is a kid from the same foster home. Freddy also happens to be a superhero enthusiast.
Billy soon becomes the superhero Shazam and starts exploring his powers with Freddy and he becomes famous. That is the basic storyline and in the end defeats Sivana, the Sin’s vessel.
Shazam 2: Release Date
Initially the date for the premiering of Shazam 2 was set on 1st April 2020, which mnay thought to be a joke as it is April Fools day, but the announcement was no joke.
Zachary Levi was also reportedly back for the second installment. Shazam 2 is in addition to the Rock Black Adam film which is currently in production. If you don’t already know, Black Adam is an arch-nemesis of Shazam.
Unfortunately, we wouldn’t be able to know if it is indeed a prank or not as the release date the movie must have been postponed due to the global Coronavirus pandemic.
