Development continues on the greenlit Netflix sequel "Bright 2", directed by David Ayer ("Suicide Squad"), written by Ayer and Evan Spiliotopoulos, starring Will Smith and Joel Edgerton:

"It later turns out during an interrogation conducted by 'Kandomere', an 'elf' working for the federal 'Department of Magic's Magic Task Force', that the man arrested by Ward and Jakoby is part of a fringe militant group named 'Shield of Light' that is preparing against the return of the 'Dark Lord'..."
