After winning the box office on its opening weekend, it has emerged that the sequel to Shazam is already in the works.
According to reports, screenwriter Henry Gayden, who also wrote the current film, has signed a deal to write a sequel to the hit DC film.
The studio is hoping director David S. Sandberg will return too, but that hasn’t quite been confirmed yet.
That news also comes after one of the film’s producers, Dwayne Johnson, congratulated the filmmakers on Instagram and said his Black Adam movie, which would eventually lead to a showdown with Shazam, is eyeing a 2020 start date.
There’s no word on what Shazam 2 might be about, but Shazam itself gave a few ideas of where a sequel could go, thanks to a few big surprises at the end of the film and in its credits.
