What is the release date of Shazam! The Rage of the Gods?
The Shazam feature film, which landed on our screens in April 2019, could be called surprising as it differed from what the DC cinematic universe had installed so far. This lightning hero returns to our screens after 4 years of production, to say the least delicate. The cause ? A calendar problem! This second Shazam film was ready long before other DCEU films, but Warner and DC could never agree on a proper release date relative to other productions. Fortunately, a decision finally fell. Shazam! The Rage of the Gods arrives on 29 mars 2023 At the movie theater.
In view of the commercial success of Shazam, The Rage of the Gods is announced immediately after the release of the first film. Initially planned to be released during the year 2020, the production was of course parasitized by the Covid-19 pandemic and experienced many postponements. The film was then to be released on April 1, 2022, then November 4, 2022 and finally June 2, 2023. The film was finally advanced to December 2022 to be pushed back one last time to March 29, 2023. Shazam! The Rage Of The Gods will be visible exclusively At the movie theater with the aim of relaunching the DC Universe in cinemas and preparing for the release of The Flash next June.
What is the story of Shazam! The Rage of the Gods?
William Billy Batson is a 14-year-old teenager who gains superpowers from an ancient wizard who deems him worthy of receiving them. Thus, by saying the word “Shazam”, he transforms into a superhero endowed with superhuman strength as well as the abilities to fly and control lightning. After saving the world for the first time from the threat of Thaddeus Sivana, who wanted revenge on the ancient wizard, William Batson and his whole family find themselves confronted with the daughters of Atlas, three witches eager to recover the magic that was stolen from them. To keep his powers, but above all to protect his family and his planet, Billy can count on the help of those around him.
Difficult to answer the question, this because of the recent arrival of James Gunn and Peter Safran at the head of DC Studios. The two men have already planned everything and launched a complete reboot of the DC universe at the cinema. Wonder Woman 3 has been cancelled. Henry Cavill will no longer play Superman. The film The Flash is supposed to forever transform this multimedia multiverse comprising films, series and even video games. It is therefore difficult to know if Shazam will be part of the reboot operated by the new bosses of the super-heroic firm. Although this sequel takes place after the events of the first Shazam, it is unknown if Shazam! The Rage of the Gods takes place after the events of the film Black Adam.
