Zachary Levi says Shazam, Black Adam crossover is a few movies away

During a recent appearance at Germany’s CCXP Cologne convention, Zachary Levi was asked about when the highly-anticipated crossover between Shazam and Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam will take place, revealing the epic showdown might not happen soon…

I can say that as far as I know, Black Adam is not going to be in the second Shazam!, because the idea is that they want to go and do a standalone Black Adam movie first,” Levi said (via Comic Book). “And then it would kind of be, if we do a third Shazam! and a second Black Adam, kind of [parallel] like that, that’s where we would [meet].

On why Warner Bros. Pictures had decided to do the crossover later into the franchise, Levi further explained, “Because he’s like the ultimate bad guy for Captain Marvel, Shazam. Like [Shazam and] Black Adam, they’re doppelgängers right, the evil twin to who I am. So that’s got to be like the final battle, If we do that in the second movie, then where do we go after that? It would just be a movie of us sitting around playing video games for the third one, that would be very boring. Or not [laughs]. I’m a very interesting video game player. So yeah, I think that’s the idea. We’ll definitely [cross over] — the plan is to get there, but just to pace it out however it needs to pace out.”

While Shazam! was largely self-contained, it did open a few doors for a sequel. For example. Billy Batson probably won’t be the only hero in the next movie. The mid-credits scene also introduced a bizarre villain directly from the comic books in Mr. Mind. Not to mention the constant references to the Justice League, including a (sort of) cameo by Superman himself.

There’s even an allusion to Black Adam early in the film, although not by name. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has been attached to play Black Adam for years, though it seems like Warner Bros. is taking their time bringing the two on screen together.
