Shazam and Suicide Squad 2 opening in 2019

HeroicUniverse had been teasing a big DCEU scoop for today on our Twitter account and here it is!

Our sources can now confirm that the 2019 DCEU movie slate will include Shazam!

David F. Sandberg, the filmmaker behind upcoming Annabelle: Creation, is directing Shazam!, and the film will go into production in January or February 2018.

The big question with Shazam! has been the level of involvement with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, who has been cast as Black Adam and has lobbied hard for a solo Black Adam movie. While it is unclear if Johnson will be in Shazam!, he is attached as star and producer of the Black Adam spinoff being developed concurrently to Shazam! A date for the Black Adam solo film hasn’t been finalized.

How’s that for the start of Comic-Con weekend? Stay tuned for more.
