Shazam 2 director responds to Justice League vs. Black Adam

Amid the turmoil and uncertainty facing the DCEU, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s black adam advances, promising to change the hierarchy of the blue mark.

The problem is that the public does not know exactly what that hierarchy is.

It’s no secret that the DCEU has been struggling for years after the studio’s handling of Zack Snyder, subsequent lack of direction, and the accusations against Ezra Miller.

When the merger of Warner Bros. Discovery suggested that a clean slate was being made, it seemed that black adamThe threat of was too little, too late.

But now, the conversation has changed.

In addition to the rumors about the role of Superman in the film and a controversy black adam trailer with League of Justice images along with the role of Amanda Waller, there is also talk of a future black adam cross with him suicide squad Y League of Justice.

As the former DCU appears to be back, another DC director whose own movie is set to follow black adamHe has shared his reaction.

According to a rumor from Grace Randolph, shared via @TheDC_SyndicateDwayne “The Rock” Johnson wants black adam to cross with League of Justice and the suicide squad while Shazam was not mentioned:

“RUMOR: According to @GraceRandolph, Dwayne Johnson is reportedly pitching a ‘Black Adam vs. Justice League vs. Suicide Squad’ movie. Maybe Amanda Waller, Harcourt, Superman,… appearances in #Black Adam Movie lead to this event.”

It is worth noting that the tweet mentioned League of Justice opposite to Zack Snyder’s Justice Leagueas well as 2016 suicide squad instead of James Gunn the suicide squad which premiered last year.

But again, there’s another current DC hero who wasn’t mentioned in this rumour, and that’s Shazam, whose second movie, Shazam! fury of the gods, It will premiere on March 17, 2023.

Shazam 2The director of , David F. Sandberg, responded to the rumor, and the absence of its main character, posting the following image of Shazam in Twitter.

Why does Black Adam ignore Shazam?

Is The Rock trying to revive the old DCEU on his own?

If this rumor is true, it sure seems so; and the League of Justice The footage, which was removed due to backlash, suggests this could be the actor’s intention.

However, it’s strange that Dwayne Johnson is focused on reviving two problematic, and recently revised and/or rebooted, movies instead of Shazam.

it is not only Shazam 2 the next DC movie on the docket, but black adam and Shazam are directly linked in the comics. In fact, Black Adam is an antagonist of Shazam. But this strange Shazam-less rumor isn’t just baffling fans. Given Sandberg’s tweet, the character’s absence also puzzles him.

However, if Johnson really is throwing a black adam confrontation with Justice League and Suicide SquadShazam may be better off staying out of it.

Much like what happened with the recent trailer drama, fans and those in the Snyder Cut movement will have issues over which Justice League is being referenced in this crossover. In fact, they have already answered the League of Justice footage that was included in the recent trailer for the film.

Also, James Gunn restarted the suicide squad with a mixture of old and new actors. Choosing the 2017 movie over the 2021 movie and trying to clarify one from the other sounds like a studio nightmare.

Given these factors, this black adam rumor sounds unlikely. And, if true, it’s equally unlikely that Warner Bros. Discovery will accept it.

But then again, if it’s a given, the real question is why not Shazam?

Fans know that Johnson chose not to have Shazam and Black Adam share the screen in his next film. Are tone and style the only reasons? And, if so, is there no plan for their paths to ever cross?

In the end, only time and the box office will tell what the future holds. black adam and the future of the DCU. But in the meantime, it appears that Johnson’s rumored actions have made the status of the blue brand even more confusing.

black adam debuts October 21; Shazam! fury of the gods opens on March 17, 2023.
