SHAZAM! Two new movies have been created!
A new chapter has been written in the saga of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson playing the villain Black Adam in a feature film of the former Captain Marvel, Shazam. Originally slated to play the character in a Shazam movie that would be featured in the DC Extended Universe, Shazam! will now become two movies, one about the hero and the other about the aforementioned character.
A movie focusing on Black Adam could actually work since the character has become a fascinating antihero in the DC Universe ever since his inception and with someone like Dwayne Johnson playing him, it certainly will be something interesting to watch. Johnson himself has been long rumored to play Black Adam well before it became official a while back. I mean fan art was done of him as the character.
For those not aware, Black Adam is more or less the arch-nemesis of Shazam, his biggest and baddest villain. He’s the darkest timeline version of Shazam if you will.
Johnson himself is a capable performer that is able to go switch roles seamlessly, be it being good or bad in and out of the wrestling ring. Johnson himself is a huge box-office draw that will guarantee big returns for very studio he works with.
What’s your reaction to the news, geeks? Are you a fan of Dwayne Johnson? Is Black Adam worthy of his own movie? Let us know in the comments below!
