The sequel to Shazam the part of DC Extended Universe will be released this year. Yes, you heard that right and the date of release is *drumrolls please* December 21, 2022, in the US. A part of your Christmas plan is set as the film is releasing during the month of reindeer and jingling bells. They are launching the movie during the holidays as they do not want the DCEU fans and Shazam fans to miss the first-watch experience. The film was initially planned to be released on December 16, 2022.
But the dates were changed and postponed because they did not want to have the date clash with another awaited movie Avatar: The Way of Water. Considering the immense popularity and grossing that the first Avatar did, the makers did not want to have any clash, thus the film was shifted to another date.
I know you must be feeling bad to some extent but isn’t it better than waiting till 2023 for the release? 2023 was the initial plan of the makers but then it was decided to launch this year. Thus, I guess it is much better to wait for a few months than to wait for a new year. So, mark the dates without fail to not miss the first day first watch experience.
