Johnson's remarks here sound eerily familiar to something he told MTV News nearly a year ago to the day. Up until previous year, it was believed that Johnson would play the antagonist in David F. Sandberg's Shazam! film, which is slated to release in 2019. The Rock said that part what they're working on now with Black Adam is finding out how it connects to the rest of the DC Extended Universe.
Johnson previously teased "a really cool surprise in terms of where we will see Black Adam being introduced." . "Getting to work with him is an impossible dream come true".
Dwayne Johnson says that he thinks that DC Comics' Black Adam movie will start shooting in 2019, meaning that the film might come to cinemas in 2020.

Johnson then addressed DC's superhero movie competition in the slate of jaw-dropping films Marvel Studios has released in the past few years, saying that while Marvel is "doing such an incredible job of universe-building and building out", DC has been discovering what its cinematic universe should look and feel like, using the success of Wonder Woman as a means to inform the studio's decision. "Also, we have intrinsic DNA tied to a lot of other properties in DC".
Headquarters trivia is the latest craze that doesn't seem to be going away anytime soon, which is good for us because it gives us more chances to get through those 12 devilishly hard questions and try to win ourselves some real-life money. In Billy Batson's (Asher Angel) case, by shouting out one word-SHAZAM!-this streetwise 14-year-old foster kid can turn into the adult Super Hero Shazam (Zachary Levi), courtesy of an ancient wizard. But we'll just have to wait and see what happens on that end. The current plans for the project are for Black Adam to not appear in the upcoming Shazam! movie at all, though a previous report indicated there could be a teaser for the character as early as next year's Aquaman.
