According to Warner Bros, Shazam 2 will land on April 1, 2022, with Zachery Levi back as the Champion of Eternity, and the superhero alter ego of teen Billy Batson.
The Rock's long-in-the-works entry in the DC movie universe will be coming to cinemas in December 2021.
Zachary Levi doesn't seem convinced he'll get to face off with Dwayne Johnson's Black Adam, but he definitely relishes the opportunity should it ever happen.
David Sandberg ('Lights Out') will direct superhero movie - but will Dwayne Johnson appear as antagonist Black Adam?
Dwayne Johnson (set to play 'Shazam' anti-hero Black Adam) first suggested the 'Lone Ranger' actor as a possibility for the title role.
Recent years have seen Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson go from being a wrestler-turned-actor managing a so-so leading man career, to becoming one of the most bankable stars in the business – and the go-to guy for any sequel in need of a boost. Will Johnson work that same ‘Franchise Viagra’ effect on the DC Extended Universe? It has been known for some time that Johnson will be joining the DC franchise as Black Adam, shady anti-hero of ‘Shazam!’ – a film provisionally lined up for a 2019 release, to which Johnson has been basically the only name attached for several years, with still no word of who will direct or co-star.
