Pictures today confirmed the Shazam release date will be April 5, 2019.

That being said, they seem to have a charming take on the material, and with Shazam! opening in April, it's not like Warner Bros' is banking its summer slate on the movie. To The Movies is now scheduled for that date. "Shazam!" centers on DC Comics character Billy Batson (Levi) who becomes Captain Marvel, the world's mightiest mortal, when he says the magic word "Shazam!".

Likewise, Deadline reports that the untitled DC Films project scheduled for a July 27, 2018 release date has been removed from Warner's schedule, but only sort of.

The film will be scripted by Henry Gayden and Darren Lemke. Peter Safran will produce.

Despite all of the recent executive shake-ups at Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment, the studios are moving ahead with the long-in-development Shazam! movie, starring Zachary Levi from Chuck as the title character. Zachary Levi recently expressed his wish to have a Wonder Woman cameo in the movie. "She's a mom", he gushed.
