Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam is ready to take on Zachary Levi’s Shazam in a stunning new concept design for the DC Extended Universe movies.
With Black Adam and Shazam! both heading to DC FanDome later this week, a new fan edit shows Dwayne Johnson in a cool costume to go up against Billy Batson in the DC Extended Universe. Johnson has already teased there are some surprises in store for fans as he seemingly revealed the first look at the highly-anticipated Black Adam film. Although production has reportedly been shifted to 2021, many fans are still hopeful that we’ll get to see the two characters fight sooner rather than later.
The artwork comes from digital artist ‘pabloruizzx’ on Instagram and delivers an intimidating look at Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam in a stunning version of Zachary Levi’s Shazam! costume. The fan art also shows lightning cascading around the anti-hero, while his eyes also glow with power, giving him an incredible look. Hopefully we get to see more of what Black Adam‘s costume in the upcoming film will look like at DC FanDome later this week. Take a look at the artwork of Dwayne Johnson below.
Jaume Collet-Serra is directing Black Adam from a script written by Adam Sztykiel. The Dwayne Johnson movie is expected to introduce Hawkman, Doctor Fate and the Justice Society of America to the DC Extended Universe. New Line and DC’s Shazam! was originally going to feature Black Adam before the decision was made to give the character his own standalone film.

Here is the synopsis for the first Shazam! movie:
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 quick.
Directed by David F. Sandberg, the film 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.
