The main star of 'Hancock', Will Smith, has insisted that the sequel to the superhero movie will be happening.
Being one of the summer blockbuster movies, "Hancock" will reportedly be getting a sequel treatment. When talking to Joblo while promoting his upcoming movie "Seven Pounds", the action drama's star Will Smith has come up with a confirmation that "Hancock 2" is "definitely" happening.
Despite insisting that another "Hancock" movie will be seen in the future, the 40-year-old didn't give direct answer when asked whether he will reprise his role as the sarcastic and misunderstood superhero. Instead, he stated that "there are a lot of unexplored characters in the Hancock universe that would be ripe for a sequel."
Opened in U.S. theaters on July 2, "Hancock" has debuted atop the North American box office with $62.6 million over the July 4 three-day weekend. The Peter Berg-directed movie, which is starred also by Charlize Theron and Jason Bateman, has since pulled in $227.9 million from the North American sales and $624.4 million worldwide.
