Black Adam in the “Suicide Squad”?

landscape-1494926449-the-rock-black-adam

For the past week  there has been so much talk about New Line Cinema & DC’S “SHAZAM!”. From who will play the titular character and his youthful counterpart to who will potentially be his nemesis. But the question has constantly come up about SHAZAM’s greatest opponent Black Adam & where would he fit in with the film.

Well we all know that Dwayne Johnson is set to be Black Adam in an upcoming solo film that does not include the aforementioned SHAZAM. But now we may be finding out where he is making his debut.

Now according to an exclusive from The Wrap, the plot of Suicide Squad 2 will revolve around “members of Suicide Squad [who are] tasked with tracking down a weapon of mass destruction.” That weapon is apparenty…. you guessed it …..or maybe you didn’t Black Adam.

So this shouldn’t come a too much of a shock. Because Johnson himself teased a surprise introduction for the villain earlier this year, when he told Fandango: “We have a really cool surprise for Black Adam that I can’t reveal, in terms of where we will see Black Adam being introduced.” Granted he didn’t say much but he kinda told us it would be in another movie before his own solo film.

Even though Suicide Squad 2, doesn’t have a set release date yet it’s expected to begin early 2018.
Are you pumped up for this potential cameo or would just rather see Black Adam in SHAZAM?

“Sinestro” may end up in SHAZAM

Maybe not the villain Sinestro directly but the man who portrayed him may be facing DC’s latest hero to join the film world.

In an EXCLUSIVE from The Wrap

Mark Strong is in talks to play DC Comics villain Doctor Sivana in New Line’s “Shazam,” TheWrap has exclusively learned.

Strong is no stranger to DC as the actor has previously play villain Sinestro in 2011’s “Green Lantern” opposite then Green Lantern Ryan Reynolds.

Known as Shazam’s archenemy and most frequent foe, in 2009, Doctor Sivana was ranked as IGN’s 82nd Greatest Comic Book Villain of All Time. In the most recent run of DC Comics the New 52 that “Shazam,” is loosely based on,  Sivana is depicted as a respected scientistdesperate to save his family from an unknown plight. With science having failed him, he turns to magic. Doctor Sivana’s team finds what he believes to be the tomb of Black Adam; while attempting to open it, the scientist is half-blinded by magical lightning to the face (which has the side-effect of letting him see magic).

David Sandberg, the horror filmmaker behind “Lights Out” and “Annabelle: Creation,” will direct the film. Filming will begin in February 2018 for a likely 2019 release.

Zachary Levi joined the cast last week and will play “Shazam.”

Strong, who won an Oliver for “A View From the Bridge” and was last seen in “Kingsman: The Golden Circle,” next up has eight-part espionage thriller “Deep State,” for Fox Networks Group. Strong stars as Max Easton, a retired Secret Service operative and member of elite British/America team called The Section, coaxed back into the field to try to shut down an Iranian missile program.

Could we potentially see Dwayne Johnson’s “Black Adam” make an appearance of any other heroes of the DCEU?
