There was this period when DC live-action universe was undergoing a stage of floppiness. Everything just seemed to be going the wrong way but bin the recent years, I think Warner Bros has realized its mistake and is now getting back on track.
This time, DC has re-risen with full force and has gone far to produce Aquaman and Shazam which did very well.
Justice league was expected to give a good box office return but it came out as a disappointment. The same applies to Batman vs. Superman and Suicide Squad. This feedback marked DC’s turning point.
They decided to produce a movie that majors on one character at a time instead of combining all the superheroes in a single movie. This method has proven to be workable in the following ways:
• Characters are given time to produce better stand-alone movies
• The production Budget becomes relatively cheaper
• A single character is able to express himself or herself in a distinct way while establishing themselves
I am not saying that Shazam and Aquaman were used as experiments but I am going to say that the method is the best for DC. In that case, reports reveal that the two successful projects will be getting their own sequels as soon as possible.
This brings us back to Shazam 2! I dare say Shazam was amazing, grand and superb. Zachary Levi who embodied the super powered title character has said that Shazam 2 might be around the corner. This is great news to the all the people who watched Shazam.
The movie was very cool right from the beginning and I suppose it is because the cast was majorly combined of child actors.
Zachary Levi says that he wants the kids to make the sequel sooner rather than later. This is because, kid actors usually grow at a very fast rate to become full adults.
What Zachary says is very true and that is why the sequel should be given the first priority. Shazam itself revolves around Billy
Watson, a teenager who is mysteriously given powers by a wizard.
Just like a peasant who has become rich overnight, Billy who was an ordinary kid becomes a superhero. He is quickly inducted by the wizard to having powers similar to those of Superman. He portrays skillful on-stage performance alongside his foster siblings to make the movie a thrilling must see for those who missed it.
Shazam’s director, David F.Sandberg needs to cut short his crews holiday, even if it means stashing other projects in order to ensure Shazam 2 is done and dusted just before the cast ages.
Levi had indicated that the sequel would be coming when he was at Germany’s CCXP Cologne Convention. Billions of DC fans out there can’t wait for the sequel, not after the great impact the kids left not only to DC but also to the whole superhero genre. Meanwhile, the fans can check out what Birds of Prey entails-DCEU’s next great instalment come February 7th 2020.
