‘He Doesn’t Think Shazam Is a Big Hero’: Fans Outraged Over Black Adam Not Having a Crossover With Shazam, Claim the Rock Only Wants to Fight Superman Because of His Massive Ego

Featured Video

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has been hyping up the DC anti-hero movie Black Adam for a long time. The Rock is all set to play DC’s anti-protagonist after giving much pressure and persuasion to bring this character to life. In the comics, Black Adam is the base nemesis of Shazam. However, there has been yet no confirmation of him fighting Shazam…but rather Superman

Dwayne Johnson has been hyping up his wish to fight the protector of Metropolis and part-time reporter Clark Kent aka Superman. This is contradictory to the comics where Black Adam is the nemesis of the mage-powered superhero Shazam. Fans started to question the Rock’s decision to fight Superman rather than Shazam when it is actually Shazam getting a sequel titled Shazam!: Fury of the Gods, while the people don’t even know who is to play Superman anymore (we hope it continues to be Henry Cavill).

Fans took to Twitter and expressed their opinions wherein many of them hinted at an alleged ego of Dwayne Johnson about the massiveness of Superman compared to Shazam that made the people over at DC change their mind.

The news that Shazam won’t be crossing paths with Black Adam was shared by IGN on Twitter and fans replied in equal measures to the same:

When Dwayne Johnson was “booed” on stage during SDCC

The San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC) was a pretty massive event in the timeline of both entertainment-giants Marvel as well as DC. The fans, however, could not help but compare both the studios. With Marvel having an impressive lineup for its Phase 5 & 6, DC was the target of the people for its relatively less preparedness (however, the criteria cannot be compared). And during that moment, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson decided to descend from the clouds while wearing his Black Adam costume. But it was during one of his interviews that he was booed for apparently wondering about the casting of Superman.


Henry Cavill has always been a massive success in whatever character he portrays. The people loved him as Superman in Man of Steel and the subsequent Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League. An interviewer asked the question to the Jumanji actor about who would win in a fight, Black Adam or Superman.

The actor replied that it depends on who’s playing the role. That’s when the fans started booing the popular actor as the statement referenced that our beloved Henry Cavill may be replaced as Superman.

We can’t say who the 5000-year-old Egyptian will fight but all the answers will be revealed in the movie as well as in the upcoming time. Black Adam is slated for a release date of 21st October 2022 in theaters across the globe.
