Shazam! Fury of the Gods is officially one step closer to becoming a reality. On Tuesday, director David F. Sandberg took to social media to confirm that filming on the DC film, which will be the sequel to 2019's Shazam!, has officially wrapped production. On Twitter, he announced the news with a photo of the film's slate, and while he posted a separate photo on Instagram of himself standing in one of the film's sets. The set in question appears to show some sort of hotel room or apartment with a massive hole blown through the wall, and it's anyone's guess as to how that factors into the plot.

"We're shooting right now, I'm in Atlanta. We're shooting the second one. I've been here since May, so we're shooting and everything is going great," Angel told Entertainment Tonight earlier this year. "It's crazy, because it's so long overdue, so to be back feels so good. It's so great to see Zachary Levi and Jack [Dylan Grazer]."
"We also have some new additions to the cast, some new people, so it feels so good to be back as Billy Batson. It's gonna be so much fun," Angel added. "I think the sequel is definitely gonna follow up the first one."
