While recent superhero flick Captain Marvel turned out to be a big success, this DC film is on the lower side when compared. It will be interesting to see how Zachary Levi starrer fares once multistarrer Kalank arrives next week, on Wednesday.
It’s time for the second chapter of Shazam!.
In the wake of the film’s $53.5 million domestic bow over the weekend in the US, a sequel is officially in the works, reports hollywoodreporter.com.
Henry Gayden, who penned the original film’s screenplay, is writing the next instalment, while “Shazam!” director David F. Sandberg and producer Peter Safran are expected to return for the follow-up.
The DC film set up plenty of fodder for potential sequels, with surprise cameos setting the stage for more heroes in the universe and a mid-credits scene teasing a mysterious villain. Dwayne Johnson is also set to star in his own solo movie as the classic Shazam villain Black Adam. He will presumably face off against the hero at some point.
