Dwayne Johnson has not been clear if Black Adam or Shazam will ever meet up, which has people wondering if the Black Adam Movie will be happening. Johnson is the producer on Shazam! so somebody in this production company should know what’s up.
An update comes from Johnson’s manager, former wife, business partner and fellow producer on Shazam!, Dany Garcia, who also manages Superman Henry Cavill. A set up for Black Adam vs Superman anyone?
“Black Adam is definitely happening,” Garcia filled in Collider. “We’re actually very deep into a script on it right now, which is coming along really well. I’m really excited about the story we’ve crafted.”
Garcia confirms that Dwayne Johnson and Black Adam will not be in David F. Sandberg’s Shazam!, which stars Zachary Levi.
“So as we were developing an actual Black Adam and Shazam movie, we were just realizing that both characters are so special that we didn’t want to compromise either of them by cramming them both into the same movie,” Garcia said.
No production date is set for the movie yet but they do have a completed script that they are putting the final touches on.
“So where we are now with Black Adam is we just got our latest script [from Adam Sztykiel]. We’re doing some revisions on it,” Garcia said.
Black Adam will be a true anti-hero with a good backstory explaining why he is so hard ass. “Especially when he’s not a boy scout. Especially when he’s got an edge to him. Like, he’s not the boy scout superhero, he’s the guy that’s like, okay, you cross him? Well, I rip your head off, and then I move on to the next guy,” she said.
