Doing the press rounds for Seven Pounds, Will Smith told JoBlo that Hancock will "definitely" have a sequel.
When we asked Will if he'd ever be up for playing another superhero he replied 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.
See, this makes sense to me. Chapter 1: homeless drunk reforms himself to help people. Chapter 2: it turns out he was only pretending to reform until you let him in your house; then he steals most of your valuables, and when you see him on the same corner a week later, he still has the audacity to ask you for money again. That's always the way it goes with these types.
