Star Zachary Levi has confirmed that reshoots have officially begun filming in Toronto this week for Warner Bros.' Shazam!.
In an Instagram post on his personal account, Levi posted a closeup of the belt to his character's superhero costume confirming additional filming was taking place back in Toronto, where principal photography occurred earlier this year. Levi also took time in his post to urge his fans to vote.

Back in the saddle again. We about to make “additional photography” look rill purty. 💅 Also, now that I have your attention: if you’re in the United States of America, and you care about the direction our country is heading/about to head, and how that affects all of us, I encourage you to educate yourself on the matters and candidates at hand, and then vote according to YOUR convictions. Trust that your voice does in fact mean something. And our collective voices mean everything. #wethepeople 🙌
Reports had arisen two weeks ago that the upcoming DC film would undergo nearly three weeks of scheduled reshoots in Toronto ahead of its April release. The reshoots are expected to last until November 18.
While it's unclear if the reshoots add the long-rumored Superman cameo to the film with Henry Cavill's status in the DC Extended Universe currently unknown, the practice of major studio films entering a final round of additional filming is relatively commonplace. The untitled Avengers sequel wrapped its own month-long round of reshoots several weeks ago while Levi indicated Shazam!'s reshoots are simply to add some final polish to the upcoming film.
Arriving on April 5, 2019, director David F. Sandberg’s Shazam! stars Asher Angel as Billy Batson, Zachary Levi as Shazam, Mark Strong as Dr. Thaddeus Sivana, Djimon Hounsou as the ancient wizard Shazam, Grace Fulton as Mary Bromfield, Jack Dylan Grazer as Frederick “Freddy” Freeman, Ian Chen as Eugene Choi, Jovan Armand as Pedro Peña, Faithe Herman as Darla Dudley, Cooper Andrews as Victor Vásquez, and Marta Milans as Rosa Vásquez.
