Shazam 2 Adds A Veteran Composer From The Marvel Cinematic Universe


Although Shazam! : The fury of the gods actually pushed forward its release date at Warner Bros. most recent schedule change, the sequel flew mostly under the radar. After Dwayne Johnson’s run with black adam in October, veteran DC star Zachary Levi will bring Shazam back to the DCEU with a sequel that should take everything from the first film to new levels of excitement.

David F. Sandberg is back to direct his second DCEU movie four years after the original film hit theaters, though he’s been subject to various schedule changes to Shazam! 2 with the evolution of the cinematographic landscape. He has openly discussed some of the plans for his next sequel with fans on social media throughout the process, repeatedly providing plenty of laughs with so many changes for his next outing.

With filming completed for Shazam! 2 in September 2021, Sandberg and Warner Bros. are deeply engaged in the post-production process to bring in editing, music and special effects for the final cut of the film.

In Sandberg’s latest update, he shared who will bring the sequel’s musical score to life from Zachary Levi, a veteran Marvel composer who is now in the DC world.

Shazam gets Marvel Regular as composer


Shazam! : The fury of the gods director David F. Sandberg shared on Twitter that Christophe Beck will serve as composer for his second DCEU film.

A fan asked if composer Benjamin Wallfisch would return to compose the sequel, leading Sandberg to reveal Beck’s news:

“That was the plan, but the timings got in the way (there are too many movies being shot at the same time right now). Christophe Beck scored this one and he did an amazing job!”

This is Beck’s first compositional work within the DCEU following his work on scores for four MCU projects, including The ant Man, Ant-Man and the Wasp, Wanda Visionand Hawk Eye. He’s also set to write next year’s score. Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.

Beck adds a DC movie to his cover

Christophe Beck is fast becoming an industry favorite composer with nearly half a dozen scores from the Marvel Cinematic Universe by early next year. Now he has the chance to bring that expertise to the DC side of the equation for Warner Bros. final film of this year – the one that will be the follow-up to one of the DCEU’s most successful films to date.

Beck also becomes the second composer this year to move from Marvel to DC after the Spider Man The Trilogy’s Michael Giacchino delivered a hugely popular musical score about Matt Reeves The Batman. This only adds to Beck’s impressive resume of the past few years as he continues his run through the world of comic book movies.

Now the wait continues for more names to be added to Shazam! 2Sandberg and his team are working diligently to complete their work on the film over the next six months. The promotional tour for the sequel is set to begin in the coming weeks, and with Avatar: Waterway Releasing just a few days earlier, Warner Bros. will want to make sure this movie gets its own shine.
