Shazam has been the third hit in a row for DC live action movies. One of the elements that was integral to making that happen was the script. Both funny and poignant, the screenplay had something for everybody. It makes sense, then, that DC would want to bring screenwriter Henry Gayden back to work on the sequel. According to sources close to production, Hayden will return for the sequel! The filmmaking team of David F. Sandberg and Peter Safran are also expected to return.
