It is hard to guess the plot of the upcoming Shazam 2. They keep the details about the plot real private before the movie hits theatres. but, judging from how the first movie ended on a cliffhanger.

Asher Angel is going to reprise his role of Billy Baston. He was 15 when they filmed the first Shazam. Asher is 18 and it might be tough to play someone younger. Zachary Levi is also going to return for his role of Shazam.
Zachary Levi is one of the best things about the movie. He did a good job as Shazam. But, he was not always confident about the success of the movie. He said this during an interview;
“Per the comic books, Black Adam and Captain Marvel – my true namesake – they’re yin and yang to one another. They are identical. It’s actually why I didn’t think I even had a chance of getting this job. He was already cast as Black Adam, I knew enough to know that Captain Marvel/Shazam and Black Adam were basically doppelgängers, just with a slightly different color scheme and haircut. I was like, ‘No one’s gonna hire me to be The Rock’s twin. don’t think this is going to work out.’”
Adam Brody, Ross Butler, Grace Fulton, Michelle Borth, Faithe Herman, Meagan Good, and Ian Chen are returning for their roles.
