David F. Sandberg spent some time talking with fans on Instagram this week, and he shared some thoughts on what may change in Shazam! 2.
While Shazam! didn’t light the box office on fire, it’s still receiving a sequel. And director Sandberg has some thoughts on things he wants to focus on when it comes time to make it.
Answering questions on Instagram stories this week, Sandberg was asked, “What aspect of Shazam would you like to improve the most in the sequel?” and it seems there are several things he will touch on. “A lot of things,” said Sandberg. “It’s why I’m eager to make another one. A Chance to improve on things like the action sequences, things we didn’t have time to get right with the suits, some of the CGI, etc.”
“You learn so much on every movie that you can’t wait to make another one and make use of all you’ve learned,” Sandberg concluded.
Shazam! 2 was dated for April 1, 2022, but has been delayed seven months to Nov. 4, 2022 due to the coronavirus pandemic. Hopefully we’ll receive some more information during the Shazam! panel at DC FanDome on Aug. 22.
