DC’s next two movies are Justice League, set to launch on November 17, 2017, and Aquaman, following next year on December 21, 2018. We know Shazam is next on the docket, but we didn’t know the general release date… until now!
David F. Sandberg (Lights Out, Annabelle: Creation), the director attached to Shazam, which is currently in pre-production, offered this update on the film’s release date to CinemaBlend:
“April 2019. It takes a long time to make vfx heavy movies.”
With only four months then, between Aquaman and Shazam, DC seems to be getting on track with a release schedule more closely resembling Marvel Studios’. While Aquaman is arriving over a full year after Justice League, Shazam leaves a much smaller gap between DC Extended Universe films, so hopefully, if DC can pick which project to get off the ground next AND can secure filmmakers for the project, maybe they can reach the three moves a year that Marvel Studios is churning out. At the very least, they can get back to two a year, as they did in 2016 with Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad, and this year with Wonder Woman and Justice League.
Though we don’t know exactly which week it will be released, expect Shazam in April 2019.
