CONFIRMED: ‘Shazam!’ Begins Filming This February in Toronto

It looks like both Marvel’s Captain Marvel as well as DC Comics Shazam! will be filming around the same time. We have known for a while that pre-production on the film began in late August thanks to director David L. Sandberg’s constant updates on social media.

We have cross referenced the dates through two other production listings of our own which also lists Shazam under the working title of Franklin (which we reported on last week) for a February start date:

Currently, there is no one cast in the dual lead roles of Billy Batson and Shazam. However, WWE Superstar John Cena and actor Joshua Sasse are rumored to be the frontrunners. But that could change at any time…
