Henry Gayden reportedly returning for Shazam sequel

It appears that talks are already underway for what will happen with a follow-up to Shazam!.

According to a source speaking with The Wrap, Henry Gayden will be tackling the script for a Shazam! sequel. He wrote the first film, so he clearly understands the material.

The big question right now is where Gayden will fit this in his schedule. Currently, he’s adapting Last Human for Phil Lord and Christopher Miller. A Shazam! sequel is sure to be a priority for Warner Bros., so one would assume he will move over to this as soon as he finishes his current project.

There was certainly a hint of what might show up in a sequel, but with Dwayne Johnson saying his Black Adam film may film within a year, perhaps there will be a way to tie them together, making a mini Shazam-verse as it were.

We’ll just have to wait and see what happens, but it sounds as though there is a lot of Shazam! news ahead in our futures.
