Seems like fans will be waiting a while to see Dwayne Johnson/Black Adam take on Zachary Levi/Shazam!.
Ever since Dwayne Johnson announced that he would be playing Black Adam in the DCEU fans have been waiting for him to beat Shazam’s candy-ass. When the first Shazam! movie was revealed to be omitting Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam in favor of giving the anti-hero his own solo film before the magical titans face off, the general consensus was why the wait? Today that still remains the feeling and it seems that we’re going to be waiting a lot more.
During Germany’s CCXP Cologne convention, Shazam! star Zachary Levi revealed that there might be a long wait on the highly anticipated fight between he and Dwayne Johnson as Black Adam. Zachary Levi seems to believe that he and Dwayne Johnson won’t face off until after the Shazam! sequel and a Black Adam sequel. Here’s what Zachary Levi had to say:
I can say that as far as I know, Black Adam is not going to be in the second Shazam!, because the idea is that they want to go and do a standalone Black Adam movie first, And then it would kind of be, if we do a third Shazam! and a second Black Adam, kind of like that, that’s where we would meet.
Sounds like Dwayne Johnson will be starring in more than one Black Adam movie before he finally takes on Zachary Levi in the third Shazam!. Other than that, Dwayne Johnson has plenty on his plate. In addition to Hobbs & Shaw, Dwayne Johnson will star in a few other upcoming films such as Jumanji: The Next Level and Jungle Cruise.

Here’s the official synopsis for Zachary Levi’s Shazam!:
We all have a superhero inside us, it just takes a bit of magic to bring it out. In Billy Batson’s (Angel) case, by shouting out one word—SHAZAM!—this streetwise 14-year-old foster kid can turn into the adult Super Hero Shazam (Levi), courtesy of an ancient wizard. Still a kid at heart—inside a ripped, godlike body—Shazam revels in this adult version of himself by doing what any teen would do with superpowers: have fun with them! Can he fly? Does he have X-ray vision? Can he shoot lightning out of his hands? Can he skip his social studies test? Shazam sets out to test the limits of his abilities with the joyful recklessness of a child. But he’ll need to master these powers quickly in order to fight the deadly forces of evil controlled by Dr. Thaddeus Sivana (Strong).
Directed by David F. Sandberg, Shazam! stars Zachary Levi, Asher Angel, Mark Strong, Jack Dylan Grazer, Grace Fulton, Faithe Herman, Ian Chen, Jovan Armand, Cooper Andrews, Marta Milans and Djimon Hounsou.
Shazam! will be available on Digital HD starting July 2, 2019, followed by an Ultra HD Blu-ray, Blu-ray, and DVD release on July 16.
Stay tuned for more news on Dwayne Johnson and the Black Adam film!
