When Is the Shazam 2 HBO Max Release Date?
The Shazam 2 HBO Max release date is almost here. With Shazam! Fury of the Gods having finally ended its theatrical run and is approaching its release on HBO Max. When can fans watch and stream Shazam 2 on the Warner Bros. Discovery-owned streamer? Here’s what you need to know.
When Is the Shazam 2 Release Date for HBO Max?
The Shazam 2 HBO Max release date is May 23, 2023.
Technically, the David F. Sandberg-directed movie will be part of the Max available content as the rebranded version of HBO Max will debut on the same day. The film hit theaters on March 17, 2023, but didn’t perform as well as expected, ending up the lowest-grossing DC Universe live-action entree. Considering the poor box-office results, there is a lot of uncertainty about Shazam’s future in the James Gunn-led version of the DC Universe. Still, leading actor Zachary Levi seems open to reprising the character on future occasions, provided there will be any.
When it launches on HBO Max, Shazam! Fury of the Gods will “continue the story of teenage Billy Batson (Asher Angel) who, upon reciting the magic word “SHAZAM!,” is transformed into his adult Super Hero alter ego, Shazam.” In this sequel, Shazam isn’t alone, as he is joined by his fellow super-powered friends who are “still learning how to juggle teenage life with having adult Super Hero alter-egos.” This time around, there’s an even bigger enemy, with “the Daughters of Atlas, a vengeful trio of ancient gods, arriving on Earth in search of the magic stolen from them long ago.”
