Warner Bros. Pictures and New Line are moving forward fast on their sequel to this past weekend’s “Shazam!”.
With the film coming in ahead of expectations with a $53 million opening weekend debut and strong reviews, the studios have reportedly signed screenwriter Henry Gayden to return to pen the script.
Director David F. Sandberg and producer Peter Safran are likely to return as well for the follow-up.
The news comes as Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, who has been attached for many years to play Shazam’s main nemesis Black Adam, congratulated the success of the film and indicated the “Black Adam” solo film will begin shooting about a year from now.
