Earlier Black Adam was considered to be part of the 2019 release Shazam!
In 2014, Dwayne Johnson revealed his involvement in Shazam, whether he will play the titular superhero character or villainous Black Adam was still in question.
All the air concerning Johnson’s role in Shazam became clear in 2017 when it was revealed that he will star in his individual Warner Bros. produced DC’s Black Adam.
Dwayne Johnson while interviewed by Vanity Fair mentioned the real reason for keeping Black Adam out of 2019’s Shazam was quite simple.
He further mentioned that to have two origin stories in a single movie wouldn’t have done justice to the character of Black Adam.
Johnson also said that for Shazam having such a plot could work but on Black Adam’s part ot would have been a complete disservice.
It was all thanks to Dwayne Johnson’s prestige and authority, as he was able to manipulate the production houses for a separate movie for the all-powerful character of Black Adam.
