Here’s what Sam Raimi had to say when he was asked whether a Darkman sequel was in the works:

Yes. Universal is talking about a Darkman sequel. There’s a producer attached, I haven’t heard the story yet or gone into it, I’ve been so busy with this movie. But I think it’s cool.

Raimi then confirmed that while they were “probably thinking” about sequels at the time of the first movie, he doesn’t have any ideas in a drawer that he’s eager to unearth for a sequel.

Many fans of the first Darkman movie will naturally be wondering whether Liam Neeson would return for a sequel.

Raimi was asked about this, and he said: “I don’t know if he’d do it, but he’d be incredible.”
