Billy will return
Billy Batson and his alter-ego will return in 2022, as Warner Bros. has finally announced the release date for the sequel to their super successful superhero film, Shazam!
The new film will be released on April 1st, 2022 – yes, April Fool’s Day.
Zachary Levi is reportedly back on board to star. In addition to this, Black Adam, starring Dwayne Johnson in the titular role is set to begin filming next year. Black Adam, of course, is typically shown as Shazam’s arch-nemesis so it makes sense that Warner Bros. would want to introduce the audience to this character before he shows up as the villain in the sequel.
This news comes after the studio announced the release dates for a number of their upcoming features, including The Flash starring Ezra Miller, which is set for release on July 1st, 2022. As well as this, the fourth instalment of The Matrix franchise will be released on May 21st, 2021 – the exact same date as John Wick: Chapter 4, proving the Keanussaince is still going strong.
