After a relatively high ticket office, and a success among critics, the Warner Bros looks like it will leave Shazam! in the universe that the film was presented.
Rumors that the screenwriter Henry Gayden must return to write the script for the second film, where Zachary Levi commented to AP Press that the film could start recording as early as 2020!
“Levi said the film created a huge platform for his career. The actor stated that the script for the sequel has already started to be written and that the expectation is to start recording in late spring, or early American summer next year ”
With the entry of Jaume Collet-Serra for the direction of the solo film of Adão Negro, with The Rock, it seems that DC wants to run with the creation of the Shazam universe! at the movies.
Check out our review of the film here.
