Warner Bros. Pictures gave “Shazam 2” and the live-action “Sesame Street” movie official release dates. While the dates may change sometime before 2022, the big “Shazam!” sequel is now set to fly into theaters on April 1, 2022, while “Sesame Street” has been delayed to January 15, 2022. Jonathan Krisel is directing “Sesame Street,” which is a live-action musical from Warner Bros. Pictures and MGM. Shawn Levy is producing the film with Michael Aguilar. David F. Sandberg directed the original “Shazam!” movie, and the studio hasn’t confirmed the director for the sequel. “Shazam!” opened at the top of the box office in April 2019 with a $53.5M debut against “Pet Sematary” and “The Best of Enemies.” The DC movie went on to make over $364.5M worldwide and featured Asher Angel and Zachary Levi.
