Dwayne Johnson Talks Black Adam & the DC Universe
A huge meeting was just held yesterday at DC Comics, where Shazam star Dwayne Johnson, producer Hiram Garcia, and DC Comics president and Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns met to discuss the actor’s role as supervillain Black Adam as well as the cinematic universe at large.
December 25th, Dwayne Johnson took to Instagram with a snapshot of himself and pal, Superman actor Henry Cavill, which sparked rumors of a possible onscreen matchup between Black Adam and the Man of Steel.
It remains to be seen when this match-up could happen on the big screen, as the Shazam movie is still without a director; but who do you think will win when they meet?
Shazam was previously announced for an April 5, 2019, though Johnson has teased that the film could arrive earlier than that. The film illustrates the story of teenager Billy Batson, who transforms into the superhero when he says the magic word “Shazam!”
