Black Adam - DC Comics News

Last week Warner Bros. announced that Zachary Levi has been cast as the original Captain Marvel in the upcoming New Line Cinema film, Shazam. This week it’s now been revealed that screenwriter, Adam Sztykiel is in negotiations to write the closely-related Black Adam film starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.

Sztykiel is best known for comedies such as Due Date and Made of Honor as well as the NBC show Undateable. He is also part of the writing team for the upcoming Johnson film, Rampage Based on the classic 1980s video game.

For those that don’t know, Black Adam is a supervillain that was previously scheduled to appear in the Shazam film as Captain Marvel’s archnemesis. But since Johnson has been tied to the project for so long, he was connected before his current level of stardom. Now because of his A-List status, Warner Bros. wants to capitalize on him as much as possible and have chosen to give him his own film.

It isn’t officially stated anywhere yet, but you can be sure not only will Black Adam cross paths with Captain Marvel in the future, but it’s safe to say he will come across Superman at some point in the future as well.

Hi, I'm Cameron Tevis and I've been a comic book, anime and film fan my entire life. While I like Marvel and anime my true love is DC Comics. My father, who was a fan himself, introduced me at a very young age to the amazing characters in DC (especially Hal Jordan Green Lantern). I think it's a fantastic time to be a comic book fan and I'm happy I get to write about the company that I love so much. Besides being a DC fan, I am a designer and I recently started a comic book series of my own called Event Cycle 6 published through Aporian Comics. I recently wrote and directed a short film "The Misadventures of Harley Quinn". And most importantly I am now a father to my beautiful daughter Arya Jade!
