Production History

It was announced in January 2017 that Dwayne Johnson will be reprising his role as Black Adam in his own solo movie.[1]


  • Black Adam was originally going to first appear in Shazam!, but it was later revealed that he will instead make his debut in his own film.
  • Jaume Collet-Serra was considered to direct The Suicide Squad but drooped out of the running to direct Jungle Cruise instead, that film also starred Dwayne Johnson.
  • While Black Adam and Captain Marvel both speak the same name of the wizard Shazam as an acronym to activate their powers, in the case of Captain Marvel the acronym stands for the wisdom of Solomon, the strength of Hercules, the stamina of Atlas, the power of Zeus, the courage of Achilles, and the speed of Mercury. In the case of Black Adam, the acronym stands for the stamina of Shu, the swiftness of Horus, the strength of Amon, the wisdom of Zehuti, the power of Aton, and the courage of Mehen.
