Black Adam Will Get a Surprise DCEU Introduction, Superman Fight Promised

The Rock Wants Armie Hammer as Shazam

The Rock has been attached to play Black Adam since 2008 and was originally supposed to play the character in the much-anticipated Shazam movie, which has been in development for quite some time now.

And looks like the Black Adam storyline is picking up steam as The Rock teased some "cool surprises" for his villainous character including a massive smackdown with another fan-favourite DC hero.

Not for nothing, but a few months ago during Christmas, Johnson hung out with Man of Steel star Henry Cavill for drinks which he shared on an Instagram post that's collected one million likes.

"One fine day... that's coming", Johnson said with a smirk.

After staying silent about the project for so long, The Rock finally opened about what he and DC have in store for fans. Unfortunately, the studio still hasn't told us what their plans for Shazam are just yet, but thanks to some awesome designs by fan artist extraordinaire Boss Logic, we can definitely say that Hammer would look great in the role. 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.

Justice League hits theatres on 17 November 2017, while Johnson is scheduled to star in the April 2019's release Shazam. First, there were rumours that he was Green Lantern, then there were fans who were convinced that he was the new Batman (replacing Affleck), while others thought he was being lured to play The Green Arrow.

And now it seems like Black Adam knows who he wants his nemesis to be.

He would also have to work on his comic timing considering Shazam is actually a boy who was granted powers of six Gods.
