Shazam Movie IS Set in the Same Universe as Batman v. Superman

December 24th, 2014 by Todd Black Comments



When DC revealed it’s full movie lineup, a few comments about one of the final films, Shazam, made fans wonder if the film featuring Earth’s Mightiest Mortal would be in the same universe as Batman v. Superman, and Justice League.

Well…DC posted a blog about the year in review and noted how the ten movies they revealed were in the same universe:

“Yes, there were rumors of some sort of film slate, mentions that Warner Bros. had “big plans” for DC Entertainment and occasional informal announcements (like the news that New Line had a Shazam movie in development). But for fans who were hoping to see a DC Cinematic Universe similar to what they’ve seen from other publishers, one that included super heroes other than Superman or Batman, there didn’t seem to be a lot to talk about.

That changed on October 15, 2014, when Warner Bros. revealed a full slate of ten DC Entertainment feature films all set within the same universe. The list included the movies we were hoping to see—Wonder Woman will get her own film, while the Justice League will get TWO movies. However, it also included quite a few surprises. A standalone Cyborg movie! A Flash feature starring Ezra Miller! A Suicide Squad movie! And coming in 2016, no less!!”

This will no doubt bring joy to a lot of fans (including this SHAZAM! fan) as this proves that this universe is truly connected from start to finish. It all starts out with Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice when it arrives in theaters March 2016!
