Shazam! star Adam Brody has just revealed whether or not he will be returning for the upcoming DC sequel.
While speaking with The Hollywood Reporter, Adam Brody talked about Shazam!, his part as The Flash in the canceled George Miller Justice League film and potential sequels to Shazam! and his likelihood to return. Adam Brody was asked if he approached it as a multi-film project from day one. Adam Brody seemly confirmed that he was returning but revealed that he was only thinking of it in those terms if the film was a success:
“Yes, but only in success. No one’s in the business anymore of making $100 million movies that aren’t made to be worlds. Even trilogies aren’t enough; they’re not even the model anymore. I’m not even saying this as a bad thing. Real success is a trilogy plus spinoffs. Real success is creating full worlds. Anything with that budget is made to make more of in success, which is exciting. That’s the thrill. In a way, it’s like doing a huge pilot.”
Adam Brody, of course, had a surprise role in Shazam! During the film’s climax, Shazam shared his powers with his foster siblings in order to take down Dr. Silvana and his henchmen. Adam Brody portrayed the empowered adult version of Freddy Freeman. And from the look of things, he’ll will probably be returning for the sequel.
What do you all make of Adam Brody’s comments? Are you surprised to hear that most big-budgeted films are attempting to build their own worlds? Are you glad to hear that Adam Brody will likely be returning for the sequel? Let us know what you think in the comments below!
A Shazam! sequel is currently in development with Zachary Levi set to reprise his role as the titular superhero. Henry Gayden, who wrote the first movie, is set to pen the screenplay for the sequel and David F. Sandberg is expected to return to the director’s chair. In the meantime, fans can rewatch Zachary Levi’s first Shazam! film on all home media formats.
Here’s the official synopsis for Shazam!:
We all have a superhero inside us, it just takes a bit of magic to bring it out. In Billy Batson’s (Angel) case, by shouting out one word—SHAZAM!—this streetwise 14-year-old foster kid can turn into the adult Super Hero Shazam (Levi), 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 (Strong).
Directed by David F. Sandberg, Shazam! stars Zachary Levi, Asher Angel, Mark Strong, Jack Dylan Grazer, Grace Fulton, Faithe Herman, Ian Chen, Jovan Armand, Cooper Andrews, Marta Milans and Djimon Hounsou.
Shazam! is now available on Digital HD, 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, and DVD. Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for the latest news on Dwayne Johnson, Zachary Levi, Black Adam, and the Shazam! sequel!
