Will Shazam have a sequel? Yes, definitely. The announcement about the upcoming movie was made earlier on the heels of the first movie’s success. Moreover, following the release of Black Adam, there might also be a special crossover of these two competitors. Not only are there Black Adam and Shazam, but also Henry Cavill’s Superman will probably feature in the special movie. 
Previously, DC and WB planned for the premiere of the sequel movie this December. However, due to many reasons including the release of the studios’ Black Adam and other rivals, the official release date of Shazam!: Fury Of The Gods was pushed back. Therefore, it will fly into theaters on March 17, 2023. Which means there are only less than 4 months. 
Shazam sequel cast includes Zachary Levi/Asher Angel as the superhero Shazam and the teenage highschooler Billy Batson, respectively. Jack Dylan Grazer/Adam Brody, Ian Chen/Ross Butler, Faithe Herman/Meagan Good, Jovan Armand/D.J. Cotrona and Grace Fulton will also reprise their roles as Billy’s foster brothers and sisters. Moreover, the villainous demi-gods who will cause Billy’s family lots of trouble are portrayed by Rachel Zegler, Helen Mirran and Lucy Liu.

If you have missed, WB already released the official trailer and posters for the film. Shazam is a comedic, funny and colorful superhero movie which is similar to its predecessor Aquaman (2018). Which means it is rather different from other franchises in the DC Extended Universe. And from the trailer and posters of it, we might say that the sequel will keep all these elements. It is going to be a hilarious, chaotic, action-packed and very made-for-family movie.
