Dwayne Johnson Called the Studio to Remove Black Adam From ‘Shazam!’: It’d Be a ‘Disservice’ to the Character

There’s good news, Dwayne Johnson’s DC passion project Black Adam will finally open in theaters this October, but if Warner Bros. goes ahead with its original plan the character could debut in 2019’s Shazam. Shazam film came into development in 2014 with a script.

Origin stories were included for both the title character and Black Adam. The two have a shared history in the comics, so launching their big screen iterations together in one film seemed appropriate but Johnson disagreed. When the first draft of the film came to us, he was Black Adam.

Johnson recently told Vanity Fair that two origin stories in one film were now the goal so it wasn’t entirely surprising, but when I read it I learned we can’t make a movie like this, can we? Black Adam would not have been doing an incredible incompetence.

it would have been fine for shazam that the two origin stories meet in one movie but not good for black adam johnson continued i made a call i said i have to share my thoughts here it is very unpopular because everyone thought it The script is very good.

Let’s make this movie I said I really think you should make Shazam in your tone whatever you want and I think we should take it apart, Warner Bros.

Now Johnson this headlining fall standalone Black Adam Tent Johnson has repeatedly promised moviegoers that his Black Adam movie will change the DC universe on the big screen forever.

The film stars Aldis Hodge, Noah Centineo, Sarah Shahi, Marwan Kenzari and Pierce Brosnan alongside actors Black Adam on October 21.
