It’s not April Fools. Shazam! 2 is scheduled to open in theaters April 1st, 2022!

DEADLINE – Warner Bros. had more release date changes and announcements today in the wake of yesterday’s avalanche of news with dates for Matrix 4 and The Flash.

New Line’s DC Shazam! 2 will open on April 1, 2022 taking the place of an RSVP that the studio had for an untitled WB Event Film. There are no other major studio releases on that date and the date falls prior to Easter that year which is April 17.

Shazam! is out in DVD & Blu-ray! I have updated the gallery with high-resolution screencaps of D.J. as Super Hero Pedro, including the Blu-ray special features. The film is also available digitally on iTunes and Amazon.

D.J. is celebrating his 39th birthday today, and we would like to wish him a very happy birthday! Hope you have a great day with friends and family. We are looking forward to your next projects! If you haven’t yet, go greet him on Twitter (@DJCotrona) and/or on Instagram (@cotrona23).

In celebration, I have updated the gallery with high-quality stills and high-resolution screencaps from War Within the Cartel, a short film that served as a prequel to Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands video game in 2017.

D.J. attended the world premiere of Shazam! last night in Hollywood, California. He plays the adult Pedro Peña in the film. Check out the first few photos in our gallery!

D.J. attended the Art of Elysium’s HEAVEN Gala yesterday. This year’s visionary is Michael Muller and his collection was unveiled at the event. Check out two high-quality photos in our gallery!

Update: Added 4 more photos, thanks to my friend, Emily at Chris Evans Central!

We might not have seen D.J. fly as Superman, but we are all ready to finally see him as another superhero! DC Films Hub has reported that D.J. has officially joined the cast of the DC comic film, Shazam!, starring Zachary Levi. He will play the adult version of character Pedro Pena (played by Jovan Armand), who can share Billy’s power at Billy’s whim and become an adult Shazam-powered version of himself, who resembles a powerlifter, with extra amounts of super-strength. The film is scheduled to hit theaters on April 05, 2019. Exciting!

We all have a superhero inside us, it just takes a bit of magic to bring it out. In Billy Batson’s case, by shouting out one word—SHAZAM!—this streetwise 14-year-old foster kid can turn into the adult Super Hero Shazam, courtesy of an ancient wizard. Still a kid at heart—inside a ripped, godlike body—Shazam revels in this adult version of himself by doing what any teen would do with superpowers: have fun with them! Can he fly? Does he have X-ray vision? Can he shoot lightning out of his hands? Can he skip his social studies test? Shazam sets out to test the limits of his abilities with the joyful recklessness of a child. But he’ll need to master these powers quickly in order to fight the deadly forces of evil controlled by Dr. Thaddeus Sivana.
