It looks like there will be some changes on a Shazam! sequel. Shazam!’s screenwriter, Henry Gayden, will be returning to work on the sequel. Dwayne Johnson was asked by Variety about sequel plans, and here is what he answered: „Umm…talking about it right now, but you know just as the producers and the guys at Warner Bros. like to do, just kinda wait and let the movie continue to roll out. It got an amazing reception I was very happy with the success. I had a little bit to do with it as a producer, I was just responsible for spitting the brands of Black Adam and Shazam! and I’m happy they went on to success.“
Sequel’s production is expected to begin next year, and Johnson wants to get Black Adam up and running. It looks like Johnson wouldn’t want any crossovers to happen, so he is focused on getting his movie done. This doesn’t come as a surprise since it is known that he wanted to separate the DC Comics brand.
It is still unknown who will direct Black Adam, while Shazam! 2 will be directed by David F. Sandberg.
