Shazam! 2, The Flash, & Other DCEU Films Shifting Release Dates

Shazam! 2 and The Flash have just announced new release dates in the latest DC Films movie schedule shuffle. With The Batman moving into October of 2021, The Flash is getting bumped up a month, opening June 3rd, 2022 instead of July 4, 2022 while Shazam! 2 is being delayed from April 1, 2022, until November 4, 2022. But after SO many delays for the Ezra Miller solo film, is anyone convinced that The Flash is ever going to arrive? It’s been four years since his last film appearance, which was… underwhelming.

These moves all follow the delay of DC Films’ next release, Wonder Woman 1984, from June 5th until August 13th. The reshuffle is the result of the coronavirus pandemic shutting down film productions and movie theaters around the world, sending a ripple effect through Hollywood.

In April, Shazam! star Zachary Levi celebrated the anniversary of the first film by saying how eager he is to get to work on the sequel: “Happy 1st birthday to our ‘little superhero movie that could’. So very grateful for everything this role has brought into my life, and so damn excited to step back into the spandex as soon as we’re ready to rock ‘n roll again,” Levi wrote. “To everyone out there who continues to believe in and support us, thank you. And if you haven’t had a chance to see @shazammovie yet, now is a pretty opportune time to give it a shot, and fill your life with laughter, heart, and joy.”
