Shazam exceeded box office expectations, which meant it was only a matter of time before Warner Bros. went ahead and started thinking about the sequel. Sure enough, word is out that Henry Gayden, who wrote the first film, is set to write the Shazam sequel as well. Gayden is obviously moving up in the film world, since his only other feature writing credit before Shazam was the E.T. knock-off Earth to Echo.
