In response to the rumors of a Black Adam comeback, Shazam 2's director posts a funny comic ...

Since the film was first announced, Dwayne Johnson's Black Adam has been rumored to appear in Shazam! Fury of the Gods. While those rumors remain, Shazam 2's director David F. Sandberg responded to them with his usual sense of humor.

Black Adam is likely to make a brief appearance in Shazam 2, primarily because the two heroes are arch-enemies in DC Comics, with Billy Baton being given the powers of Shazam by the Wizard long after Black Adam had been awarded the same abilities until he was expelled for using them for evil purposes. While key figures involved in theShazam and Black Adam films have hints for crossovers, concrete plans have yet to be revealed.

Sandberg acknowledged that his previous statements were inadequate, and he posted a comic to Instagram explaining how "the DC Universe's hierarchy of power is about to change," signed only by a bicep measurement. Eventually, the Shazam 2 crew suggests to Sandberg that Johnson is a hero.

The crew tells Sandberg that both of the main characters in Disney's Jungle Cruise and the Jumanji sequels are played by Johnson, which appears to be a complete surprise to the Shazam 2 director. Rachel Zegler later commented on Sandberg's tweet, saying, "David this is so (f***ing] funny."

Sandberg has previously posted humorous material about Shazam 2 in the comic strip. One might argue that he is trying to avoid confirming or denouncing a Black Adam appearance in Shazam 2 by saying he can't be "100% sure" whether or not he has met Johnson.

Then again, as previously stated, the comic might just be a bit of fun at the expense of Johnson. Fans don't have to wait much longer to discover whether Shazam or Black Adam will cross paths, since both characters will return to the big screen by the end of the year.

Black Adam is scheduled to be released in theaters on October 21, 2022, while Shazam! Fury of the Gods is scheduled to be released on December 21, 2022.
