For years, the DC cinematic universe has always been much darker and more serious compared to Marvel. At least with Shazam! But by 2019, that tone changed for good. The entertaining blockbuster mixes teen-friendly superhero fun with a warm family history, in which surprising horror elements only creep in from time to time.
If your Shazam! If you haven’t seen it yet, you can watch the film tonight at 8:15 p.m. on Sat. 1 watch as a German free TV premiere. The DC blockbuster with Zachary Levi is not only worthwhile as entertaining entertainment. Shazam will also be an important character in what is arguably the most powerful Dwayne Johnson film of all time, due to hit the DC Universe in 2022.
Dwayne Johnson will fight Shazam as Black Adam
Even if he’s in Shazam! does not yet appear himself, Black Adam is at least briefly mentioned. When Billy meets the magician in Shazam’s cave, who transfers his powers to him, he also tells the story of the superpower. Shazam mentions that it was a long time ago there was a chosen one who was seized by the evil side and almost destroyed the world. Although we only see a silhouette, it’s Teth-Adam aka Black Adam.
