‘Shazam’ may have only just hit the big screen but due to its massive hit amongst the critics and audiences, a sequel has been set in motion.
The picture’s scribe, Henry Gayden, has reportedly signed on to the pen the sequel which could also see Director, David F. Sandberg and producer, Peter Safran return for a whole lot of big kid fun.
On its opening weekend alone, ‘Shazam’ has hit a massive $54 million at the box office, taking the top spot in the U.S., UK, Australia, New Zealand and more. In the film Zachery Levi takes the form of Shazam, the adult superhero form of the 14-year-old Billy Batson still at heart—inside a ripped, godlike body—Shazam revels in this adult version of himself by doing what any teen would do with superpowers: have fun with them! Shazam sets out to test the limits of his abilities with the joyful recklessness of a child. But he’ll need to master these powers quickly in order to fight the deadly forces of evil controlled by Dr Thaddeus Sivana (Mark Strong).
