So there’s been a bit of a to do over the last few weeks regarding Dwayne Johnson joining the DC Cinematic Universe (here and here).

And now we know why.

We’ve known for a while that Johnson was set to play anti-hero and nemesis of Shazam, Black Adam (here although we know he will be part of the bigger universe now) but now, finally, we know what exactly this means.

Yes, Shazam will now be two movies in the DC Cinematic Universe – and one of them will be fronted by Johnston’s Black Adam.

So there you have it, add to the (probably) upcoming Green Lantern, Gotham City Sirens, Suicide Squad 2, Man of Steel 2 and The Batman not just one but two Shazam/Black Adam movies.

We reckon that at some point the plan will be for Black Adam to face off against Superman… and we’re ok with that!

So there you have it, two more DC movies and this time fronted by Dwayne Johnson. What say you all?

Let us know…
