Hancock 2 Movie

Hancock II Movie - Hancock 2The movie Hancock wasn't the critics' favorite movie of Year 2008, but the public did appreciate Will Smith as a superhero, the film made some good cash making : box office earnings reached indeed $228 million which is quite a feat.

No wonder then that a sequel to Hancock is being planned, the news filtered online via JobLo:

"[...]there were a lot of unexplored characters in the HANCOCK universe that would be ripe for a sequel."
Will Smith

There is indeed a lot to explore further with Hancock, like where those god-like superheroes come from: are they fallen angels or aliens from outer space? To develop this plot they could either make a Hancock prequel going back to more than 3000 years ago, or they could go on with a Hancock sequel where a long time Nemesis, a villain, would come to Earth to pursue Hancock, giving an excuse for flashbacks.

Hnacock 2 is still in limbo as of now though: nothing official, it's just Will Smith saying that he would be interested by a movie sequel to Hancock.

So still a few years before Hancock 2, if lucky, maybe in 2011 or 2012?
