Confirmed. The Philly-centric DC Extended Universe superhero movie 'Shazam' is getting a sequel in 2022. April, to be specific.
The bulk of the original film, released April 2019, was actually filmed in Toronto, but is definitely set here, including City Hall's William Penn statue (spoiler alert, it doesn't end well for him, exploding into pieces), lots of SEPTA references and a bag of Geno's Steaks.
I haven't actually seen the first one, but it got really solid reviews and is "Certified Fresh" with a 90% rating on Rotten Tomatoes...so I think I'll be adding it to the viewing list.
Have you seen it? Are your excited they're going back for a sequel?
