Shazam! director David F. Sandberg responded to an internet troll with this “design” of Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam suit.
With movement on Black Adam finally seeming to pick up — the movie, for those who haven’t heard, got a teaser poster and a release date last week — fans are getting excited. And so is Shazam! filmmaker David F. Sandberg, whose character is bound to Black Adam through mythology, origins, and decades of comic book stories together.
Fans across the internet were loving the teaser poster of Dwayne Johnson suited up as Black Adam. While Shazam! was well received, one criticism was Zachary Levi’s Shazam! suit. An internet troll brought the subject up to Shazam! director David F. Sandberg on Twitter, who responded with his own hilarious design of Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam.
Fans are glad to know what the Black Adam timetable looks like (finally), but speculation about the timeline for a Shazam! sequel is still lingering among the fanbase as well. Series’ star Zachary Levi is right there with most fans hoping for a quick turnaround. He previously told people at a convention that he hoped the second movie would be pumped out as fast as possible following Shazam!’s success.
Shazam! is now available wherever movies are sold while Joker is still in theaters. Other upcoming DC movies include Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) on February 7, 2020, Wonder Woman 1984 on June 5, 2020, The Batman on June 25, 2021, The Suicide Squad on August 6, 2021, and Aquaman 2 on December 16, 2022
