Levi said in May that the Warner Bros project was in scripting stage. Shazam: Fury of the Gods was originally scheduled to release in April 2022, but was pushed to November 2022 after the coronavirus outbreak brought the film industry to a grinding halt.
Shazam!, which released in April 2019, was the seventh feature in the DC Extended Universe (DCESU). It followed the story of teenager Billy Batson (Aser Angel), who can transform into an adult superhero, played by Levi.
