SHAZAM! 2 Director Believes COVID-19 Will Result In The Start Of Production Being Delayed

Shazam! 2 is currently set to be released in April 2022, but director David F. Sandberg has now admitted that production on the movie may end up being delayed as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic...

Shazam! 2 is still a long way off (April 1st, 2020, to be precise), but director David F. Sandberg has admitted that shooting could be delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. While the movie is currently in the pre-production stage as work on the sequel's script continues, the plan was to start filming later this year to, presumably, coincide with Black Adam

"Well, we'll see how long this goes, because I mean, we were going to start shooting this year," he told ComicBook.com when asked about a possible delay. "But, I mean, who knows how long this will go on? I mean, it feels like every movie gets delayed now, so we'll see what happens with Shazam!"

"But so far, I've been working on the script. We can still do that, so that's being done and then, yeah, we'll just see in a couple of months how it looks, you know?" he concluded. 

We don't actually know whether the plan is for Shazam! 2 to tie into Black Adam in some way, but it would certainly make sense for there to be a cameo or post-credits scene setting the stage for an eventual meeting between the two magically powered superheroes. 

It's still too soon to say if this sequel will be delayed as a result of the ongoing pandemic, but Dwayne Johnson recently acknowledged the possibility that his Black Adam movie could fail to start shooting in July. We'll obviously keep you guys updated as the situation continues to develop.
