About a sequel to Superman war against Shazam, it could be a stretch because things didn’t go too well with Superman as an “evil” guy in Batman vs. the Judiciary League so that they’re going to do more of the same thing now? Perhaps, but I think the fans are tired of the “Dark Knight” Superman approach which has shown itself not to work, and that they all want the positive and optimistic version. That being said, I would still not complain if Henry Cavill returned to Shazam 2 under Mister Mind’s control, and I would not mind seeing Supes kick the crud out from Levi.

Keep in mind that the Batman creator Matt Reeves is Abrams’ best buds, and I have been advised that it includes a certain kind of DCEU overhaul, along with James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad.
