After a slow start Warner Bros. are finally making an effort to catch up with Marvel Studios. With nine movies dated between 2016 and 2020. Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will be the first, with Justice League confirmed, and both Aquaman and Wonder Woman believed to be in the works.

It was confirmed earlier this week that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson will play Black Adam in a Shazam movie, and so we thought now would be a good time to bring you up to date with everything you need to know about both characters as they look to share a movie within the next few years.

Shazam will be a big movie for Warner Bros. and DC Comics as they finally cast The Rock in a superhero role, beating Marvel to the punch and practically guaranteeing that it will be a box office hit.

So, what are you waiting for? You’ll know all about this movie in the time it takes to shout “Shazam!”

But the stakes have to be real.”

Perhaps most interesting though was what he revealed about Black Adam. We’re all expecting him to be the villain of the movie, but it could be that he’s more of an anti-hero as Emmerich went on to compare Adam to Johnson’s character from the Fast and Furious movies, stating: “I thought Dwayne’s take on the character, and the way that he saw Black Adam, was really compelling and fun.”

Could Black Adam be Warner Bros. and DC’s Loki?
