Is this where Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam is set to appear in the DC Cinematic Universe?

November 8th, 2017 by Marc Comments

We all know by now that Dwayne ‘the Rock’ Johnson is set to play Shazam!’s archnemisis, Black Adam, in the DC Cinematic Universe and we all know that he’ll not be appearing in the first Shazam! movie but rather in his own standalone outing. And we also know that we may see him before all that (here).

And now we may know where, when and how we’ll see him.

Word is that he will appear, albeit briefly, in Suicide Squad 2 wherein “the current plan for the sequel is for the members of Suicide Squad to be tasked with tracking down a weapon of mass destruction. That weapon? Black Adam himself. The villain is best known in DC Comics as the main nemesis of superhero Shazam.”

The Accountant’s Gavin O’Connor is currently attached to write and possibly direct Suicide Squad 2.

So what say you all? Could this be a cool way to introduce the character of Black Adam into the DC Cinematic Universe? Let us know…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
