Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson Teases BLACK ADAM And Eventual Crossover With SHAZAM

The Fate of the Furious star Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson has gone from being Shazam's villain to having his own solo Black Adam movie and he's now dropped some interesting new details...

Dwayne Johnson has been attached to play Black Adam for a while now, but it was earlier this year that the wrestler turned actor made the leap from a supporting role in Shazam to being the lead of his own solo outing. Him crossing paths with that hero at some point seems inevitable, though, and in a new interview, Johnson confirmed that the plan is for them to meet somewhere down the line.

"[What] we decided to do was to create a scenario where Black Adam has his stand-alone movie, and Captain Marvel, Shazam, has his stand-alone movie. We're building our world that way, and then we can come together at some point," he explained. That makes a lot of sense as a Shazam vs. Black Adam move has the potential to be huge if these two solo outings are a hit.

As for his experiences so far working with Warner Bros. and its DC Films division, Johnson heaped praise on Geoff Johns and seemed to indicate that there may be other things in the works for Black Adam before his own solo movie. "We've had great discussions with Geoff Johns over at DC. This is a really fun, cool time for DC right now because they're world-building. We're seeing that with Wonder Woman and Aquaman. We have a few surprises down the line." What those will be is unclear as he would only elaborate by saying that Black Adam is going to be "f**king awesome."

Shazam currently has a writer and director, but Black Adam does not. We'll hopefully hear more soon.
