Fans Speculate That Superman Will Play A Role In Shazam!
Set for release in 2019, it will be some time before audiences are able to see the planned DC superhero film. That being said, Johnson managed to ignite major discussion of the film when he shared a photo of him with Henry Cavill, the DC cinematic universe’s Superman, at his home:
“Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from Black Adam and Superman. Today we drink like gentleman and come together as friends. We’re excited for what the future brings. #DangerousGentlemen #DCWorldsWillCollide”
The “DC worlds will collide” hashtag is interesting since it appears to tease that Superman will appear in the upcoming Shazam movie, in which Johnson will play the film’s antagonist, Black Adam. Superman and Black Adam have fought each other a handful of times throughout the DCU, and since they have comparable power levels, it’s always an even match-up. Many will remember the 2010 short Superman/Shazam!: The Return of Black Adam, which featured the two heroes fighting the villain.
It remains to be seen when this match-up could happen on the big screen, as the Shazam movie is still without a director; but who do you think will win when they meet?
