Over Christmas, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson shared a photograph which appeared to show him plotting with Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice star Henry Cavill about the future of the DC Extended Universe. As one of the most successful actors in Hollywood, Johnson is given a fair bit of creative input with his projects, so that also being the case with Shazam should come as no surprise. The movie is currently scheduled to be released in 2019, and while the wrestler turned actor is set to play the villainous Black Adam, there’s already no doubt about who the main star will be.
However, could Superman somehow factor into that adventure, too? Adding him to the mix would make sense, and it’s previously happened in both the comic books and an animated movie, so there is precedent for it. Throw in the fact that pitting the Rock against the Man of Steel would be a huge box office draw for a movie starring an otherwise unknown character, and Warner Bros. would be smart to bring these two together (especially as it doesn’t look like a new Superman movie is on the way anytime soon).
Now, a new piece of fan-art has started doing the rounds which offers up an idea of what a clash between these two might look like. As you can see, Superman doesn’t fare too well in his battle against Black Adam, and it would be truly epic to see this take place in Shazam or another movie set in the DCEU.
Whether or not it will is very much up for debate right now, but let us know who you think would emerge victorious between Superman and Black Adam in the comments section down below.
