Shazam movie splits in two – Black Adam gets a solo movie

By Alex Wiggan

Forthcoming DC superhero flick, Shazam! is to be split into two movies.

According to Deadline, New Line Cinema (a division of Warner Bros) will divide up the Shazam! franchise into two separate entries, creating a Black Adam movie in the process. Actor, Dwayne Johnson will headline the film, having previously been lined up to appear as the villain in Shazam!

The reason?

It would seem that New Line (along with most of Hollywood) has become aware of Johnson’s popularity, including his ability to pack movie theatres. From a marketing and financial stand point it makes more sense to make Johnson the star of his own movie than just a guest star in someone else’s film.

No release date has been set for Black Adam, but we’ll keep you posted when we hear more.

Johnson will shortly appear in this year’s Baywatch movie. Meanwhile, the next DC movie to be released is this summer’s Wonder Woman movie.
