Shazam and the New Black Adam will Duel at Shazam! 3
Starring superhero Shazam, Zachary Levi, said that Shazam would not yet be acquainted with Black Adam in the sequel to Shazam! Most likely, they will only fight in the third film Shazam!
Black Adam himself is Shazam’s mortal enemy. Played by Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, Black Adam had planned to have his own film before he met Shazam. Reporting from Screen Rant, Levi asserted that there are reasons why Shazam and Black Adam could not be met in the near future.
“As far as I know, Black Adam will not appear in the sequel to Shazam! because he will have his own film. In addition, Black Adam is a great enemy of Shazam. Of course, it would be wasteful if he immediately appeared in the second film. If that happens, then the third film is Shazam! of course, it will be very boring, “said Levi.
As Shazam, Levi was very enthusiastic waiting for his meeting with Black Adam at Shazam! 3 which is Shazam’s final film. “Shazam’s final battle must be with Black Adam because he is the most powerful villain,” Levi said again.
Shazam! 2 itself the plan will begin working on in 2020, while the film Black Adam itself is not yet clear the date of the broadcast. The plot of Shazam’s story ! 2 itself is not yet clear, but referring to the post-credit scene in the first film, Shazam will likely face Mister Mind in the sequel later.
