Will Smith Says Hancock 2 Definitely Will Happen
Actor Will Smith talked to JoBlo recently while promoting Seven Pounds and told them that a sequel to his superhero movie Hancock will "definitely" be happening. When asked if he would play more superheroes in the future, Smith told them that "there were a lot of unexplored characters in the Hancock universe that would be ripe for a sequel and confirmed that we'll definitely see the rumored Hancock 2 in a few years." Hancock, which was released on the week of July 4th earlier this summer, earned a respectable $228 million at the box office. Enough to warrant a sequel, no question, but is another one really necessary?
If there is one movie that I hated with pure passion this year, it was Hancock. Even after seeing it, I thought it was absolute shit. An utter disaster of a superhero movie that should've flopped quickly and quietly, but alas, anything with Will Smith will earn a minimum of $200 million. On top of that, I don't know what "unexplored characters" Smith is talking about, because the only characters that were unexplored were his and Charlize Theron's, and I mean that in the worst way. The story and characters in this were haphazardly slapped together by inexperienced writers. I, for one, do not want to see a sequel.
