Since the announcement that Dwayne Johnson was cast as SHAZAM! supervillain/anti-hero Black Adam, there has been minimal updates Warner Brothers & DC Entertainment. Luckily for fans, Dwayne Johnson himself has revealed some tidbits in a recent interview with Fandango during his promotion for Baywatch.
“It’s definitely going to happen, sure. We’ve had great conversations with Geoff Johns and everyone over at DC. It’s an exciting time right now for everyone at DC because they are in a process now where they are building out [their DC universe] really nicely. We have a really cool surprise for Black Adam that I can’t reveal, in terms of where we will see Black Adam being introduced.”
There have been many theories regarding when Black Adam would appear due to his push in recent DC Entertainment properties. There was also an Instagram post featuring Henry Cavill (Superman) having a meal with the Baywatch star, which included them confirming Superman will fight Black Adam sooner than fans may imagine.
