Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s Black Adam was originally supposed to face off against Zachary Levi’s Shazam in the latter’s first film before plans shifted. Now the crossover may happen.
In a recent interview, shared on Twitter by @AjepArts, Johnson confirmed Black Adam will crossover with Zachary Levi’s Shazam in a future DC project down the road. He stated that in order to “respect” both magical heroes, they to be introduced in their own movies before meeting:
“It was just a mosh of ‘just put them both together because they’re both connected.’ So that’s when I said ‘you can’t do it like this, we have to respect Shazam and his origin story, that has to be its own movie. Respect Black Adam, this has to be its own movie. Build them up, and then you can do this.'”
The interviewer shared hopes for a crossover between Black Adam and Shazam. Johnson promised, “they’re going to happen.”
Black Adam is pulling in elements of the Justice League, Shazam, and Suicide Squad corners of the DCEU, perhaps teasing the path ahead for a possible “Black Adam vs. Justice League vs. Suicide Squad” movie. That would be the DCEU’s biggest event yet.
First Black Adam needs to be successful at the box office in order for the biggest DCEU crossover to happen. Let’s hope the film is good as well.
Will Black Adam and Shazam finally crossover in the movies? Sound off in the comments!
