Black Adam Appearance In Sequel Hinted By Henry Cavill And Dwayne Johnson
If Black Adam is the main villain in Man of Steel 2, Henry Cavill’s Superman won’t be capable of defeating him alone. Black Adam’s main ability rely on Magic. Earlier issues in DC Comics have revealed that Magic is one of Superman’s weaknesses.
Shazam’s main ability is also derived from Magic. Its highly likely that the character will support Superman to fight Black Adam in Man of Steel 2 (if the villain is cast).
Similarly, it’s possible for Man of Steel 2 to introduce Black Adam and Shazam as two new DC Characters into the cinematic universe. Earlier, rumors suggested that Warner Bros. was short listing actors to play as Shazam. Few celebrities also campaigned for the superhero role. However, the studio hasn’t made an announcement yet.
