Shazam! Star Says Crossover with Black Adam Won’t Happen Soon
It seems that it may take a while to watch Shazam lock horns with Black Adam. During Germany’s CCXP Cologne convention (via ComicBook), Shazam! star Zachary Levi revealed that fans will have to wait until Shazam! 3 to see the Billy Batson cross over with his historical archenemy.
“I can say that as far as I know, Black Adam is not going to be in the second Shazam!, because the idea is that they want to go and do a standalone Black Adam movie first. And then it would kind of be, if we do a third Shazam! and a second Black Adam, kind of [parallel] like that, that’s where we would [meet].”
We all have a superhero inside us, it just takes a bit of magic to bring it out. In Billy Batson’s case, by shouting out one word—SHAZAM!—this streetwise 14-year-old foster kid can turn into the adult Super Hero Shazam, courtesy of an ancient wizard. Still a kid t heart—inside a ripped, godlike body—Shazam revels in this adult version of himself by doing what any teen would do with superpowers: have fun with them! Can he fly? Does he have X-ray vision? Can he shoot lightning out of his hands? Can he skip his social studies test? Shazam sets out to test the limits of his abilities with the joyful recklessness of a child. But he’ll need to master these powers quickly in order to fight the deadly forces of evil controlled by Dr. Thaddeus Sivana.
Shazam! arrives on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, and DVD on July 16, and is available now on Digital-HD.
