Shazam! director David F. Sandberg reacted to rumors regarding a crossover featuring Black Adam, Justice League, and The Suicide Squad.
We are about a month away from the release of Black Adam, in which Dwayne Johnson’s long-awaited passion project with DC Films will finally hit the big screen. Although fans have their eyes on the upcoming release, some are already looking towards the future regarding the character, especially in regards to how he will inevitably face off against the likes of Shazam (Zachary Levi), the Justice League, or even the Suicide Squad.
A rumor recently hit the web, claiming that Dwayne Johnson had pitched to DC Films a crossover featuring Black Adam, the Justice League, and the Suicide Squad. Interestingly enough, Shazam isn’t mentioned in this rumor. David F. Sandberg, director of both films centered on the original Captain Marvel, took to Twitter to respond to the rumor, making an interesting point:
When will Black Adam and Shazam duke it out?
The next DC Extended Universe film set to hit theaters after Black Adam is Shazam! Fury of the Gods. Given the characters’ connection in the comics, it’s only a matter of time before we finally see them face off with one another. While there are many fans particularly eager to see Superman (Henry Cavill) return, perhaps it could be through a film with these two titans.
Here is the synopsis for Black Adam:
“Nearly 5,000 years after he was bestowed with the almighty powers of the ancient gods—and imprisoned just as quickly—Black Adam (Johnson) is freed from his earthly tomb, ready to unleash his unique form of justice on the modern world.”
Directed by Jaume Collet-Serra from a script written by Adam Sztykiel and Rory Haines & Sohrab Noshirvani, the DCEU film stars Dwayne Johnson, Aldis Hodge, Noah Centineo, Sarah Shahi, Marwan Kenzari, Quintessa Swindell, Bodhi Sabongui, and Pierce Brosnan.
Black Adam opens in theaters on October 21, 2022. Stay tuned for all the latest news on the upcoming film as well as Shazam! Fury of the Gods and the future of the Justice League, and be sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel for more original video content.
