Hancock 2 (2015) – Is a new Hancock movie finally happening?

While film details haven’t been released as of yet, it has been confirmed that Will Smith will star in the sequel to Hancock, called… wait for it, Hancock 2 . (I know right?) Columbia has hired scribes Adam Fierro and Glen Mazzara to write the new movie, coming out in 2012. However,  what was supposed to be a 2013 release now looks like 2015 at the earliest. Some of the emails we have gotten suggest Hanock 2 will indeed be a prequel.  This makes sense because they can ditch the high priced Will Smith and you know… get Jaden Smith to play Hancock, because that’s the focus of his career now it seems. If they cast Jaden Smith as the new Hancock I will vow never to post another movie preview featuring Will Smith as long as I own this blog.

Will there be a Hancock 2?

So this is a frequently asked questions, as is ‘Is Will Smith returning for the new Hancock movie?” The movie was a go 2 years ago, but Smith decided to work with his son Jaden more. Hancock 2 was shelved for a couple years, leaving 2014 the mostl likely release date for the sequel.

Rumor is, Hancock 2 will be based more on the relationship between Hancock and his true love Mary Embrey as new sets of issues arise. However, Charlize Theron hasn’t 100% commited to the film, leaving a hole in the story so far. More info as it rolls in. Director Peter Berg says ‘Hancock 2′ will happen, however the plot with Hancock has always been the sticking point.

In a new Hancock movie, they have to figure out the real struggle for Hancock, because he is invincible. So where do they take this character? There is no ‘Kryptonite’  to destroy him, apparently just the love from Charlize Theron, who is too busy staying beautiful and rich, to do any more shitty Hancock sequels..

Hancock 2 Poster

Now this is just a rumor at this point, but apparently this is the poster for the new Hanock movie. Don’t take this for the final poster since it could change a little bit between now and the 2014 release. I like what they did here, looks promising…

Hanock 2 poster.. looks legit

Hancock 2 Release Date

Look for the Hancock Sequel in summer 2015.

Who’s In It?

Rumored Cast includes : Will Smith, Charlize Theron and Jason Bateman all returning.

The Good

Hancock was a good story, but a terrible movie. His real life struggles made him likable , and easy to connect with.

The Bad

He’s invincible by all accounts, so our guess is they would make the new Hancock film a love story between Smith and Theron.. possibly with the boy getting in the way.

Our Clever Prediction

When Hancock 2 finally gets made, it will be a financial success like the first one, but fans of the comics will once again leave disappointed, wondering why they paid money for another shitty superhero movie.

    I wouldn’t mind a sequal but only if it’s made well. As a black man it would be great to see a black super hero who’s not a freekin wino. Not to mention his old lady is a white girl who’s married to someone else. Oh and one other thing why does he need to have someone train him how to fly. This fucker still look like he was fucked up off of some blackberry brandy at the end of the first movie. I think the black and brown people of this world are starving for a super hero who’s romantic, and strong and doesn’t need a shit load of humor and freekin side kick.

    Have a good day.

    Why is everyone so bitter about movies. I thought Hancock was a good movie for what it was given. It wasn’t the greatest but I think that going threw his life in that past would be a good movie.

    Honestly I hope that this movie gets completely scrapped.I mean Hancock was okay but not seguel worthy. I’d rather see Will Smith do an Independance Day 2 than this.

      Independence day sequel………..are you serious????? how is that sequel worthy, ooh, the aliens return, what a crazy twist that would be…..oh, and then America beats them again on behalf of the world……OH JOY

      Hancock set itself up for a sequel which is why a sequel is needed.

      Were you even watching the same movie as me, the one that briefly touched upon the fact that they were GODS, and that there could b e scope for more of them to exist……hmmmmmmm, where could they go with that i wonder, geeeez.
