Henry Gayden Returning to Write ‘Shazam’ Sequel

The Wrap has reported that Henry Gayden will be returning to write the screenplay for the sequel for DC’s Shazam. It has also been reported that David F. Sandberg and Peter Safran will also be returning for the sequel.

The Wrap provided a description for the first film.

“Shazam!” follows the teen-aged Billy (Asher Angel) after he is chosen as the vessel of Shazam (Zachary Levi), an ancient wizard with extraordinary powers. But Shazam probably didn’t count on Billy reacting to becoming a super-powered adult the way most middle- school boys would: by buying beer, goofing around with his excited foster brother, and going to a real estate office to find a super-cool hero lair that would blow Superman’s Fortress of Solitude out of the water. But Billy isn’t the only one that has encountered Shazam. Many years earlier, another boy named Thaddeus Sivana came face-to-face with the wizard but was not chosen as his champion. Now, as a billionaire industrialist, Sivana (Mark Strong) wishes to acquire the magic Shazam has mastered for himself… and only Billy can stop him.

No other details are confirmed at this time so stay tuned for updates.S
