Shazam 2 will start filming in a few days. Faithe Herman, the actress in the previous film, mentioned the DCEU sequel will start going into production in the next week and will release in 2023, which is a long time from now.
Warner Bros had released the Shazam! Franchise back in 2019. This set an example that DC was ready to move ahead in a different manner. Aquaman had made a profit of 1 billion dollars globally, and it was after this that Shazam! came with light-hearted content. The DCEU received a lot of positive reviews after the launch of the movie. Now the sequel to the 2019 movie will be up in production during the next week. The movie will star Zachary Levi in the lead once again and will be directed by David F. Sandberg.
Writer Henry Gayden and the director David F. Sandberg have been developing the sequel for quite some time now. The fans had already known that Zachary Levi would play the role of the superhero half along with Asher Angel. Billy Batson will play the teenager part. He changes into the superhero whenever he mentions the name. The villains have also been fixed for the movie.
The villain characters will be portrayed by Rachel Zegler, Lucy Liu, and Helen Mirren. The main cast who were there in the first part of the movie will be seen in the sequel as well. All the actors who had played the role of Billy’s foster brother, sister, and all the members of the Shazam family will also return.
Shazam 2 will enter into production During the upcoming week.
Faithe Herman plays the role of the young Darla Dudley in the movie. She has tweeted that the filming of the sequel will start. The actress was busy with the fifth season of This Is Us and will not take a break from starting her work on the new DCEU sequel. She will be starting her work in the movie sometime during the upcoming week.
It was in the talks that Meagan Good would star in the sequel. She was supposed to play the role of Darla’s Shazam form. This work started in May. However, she could not give a proper schedule for the movie. We know that the movie will release in June 2023. Looking at this time, the film has started very early for its production process.
Herman is one of those young actors now and is growing and aging at a very quick pace. This is one more reason why the film might have started filming so early. If they had waited for some more time, the actors would have looked much more mature than they are supposed to on-screen. So without wasting any more time, the filming will take off next week.
