Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam is ready to duel Zachary Levi’s Shazam in this electrifying new concept.
The concept, coming from Instagram artist Jakub Maslowski, gives Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam his suit, which borrows its aesthetic from Zachary Levi’s Shazam costume from the acclaimed DC Comics film of the same name. Here, we get a sense at how menacing Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam could look on screen in his upcoming standalone film, as well as how imposing he will look when he eventually shares the screen with Zachary Levi.

Along with borrowing the aesthetic of Zachary Levi’s Shazam suit, this fan art of Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam also includes the character’s pointed ears as seen in the comics and in various animated incarnations. Despite not appearing in it, Dwayne Johnson received an executive producer credit for the Shazam! movie.
Dwayne Johnson had been circling the world of Shazam and Black Adam for nearly a decade now. Early on, he was given the choice between either of the two characters, ultimately settling with the Black Adam role. The iconic villain was originally set to appear in the Shazam! film in which Zachary Levi was eventually cast in, but a standalone Black Adam project was the new route for the character, and Mark Strong was cast to play Doctor Sivana in Shazam! as the primary antagonist.

Warner Bros. and DC’s Shazam! was originally going to feature Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam before the decision was made to give the character his own standalone movie. Here’s the official synopsis for the 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 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! is now available on Digital HD, 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, and DVD. Stay tuned for the latest news regarding Zachary Levi and Dwayne Johnson.
