Besides the brand new and brutal-looking snippet for “Black Adam,” we also got a new behind-the-scenes look at the upcoming “Shazam!” sequel, “Shazam! Fury of the Gods.” Besides plenty of footage of the cast joking around in their colorful superhero suits, it also showed a split-second of Levi’s superpowered alter-ego looking a little worse for wear. Fleeing the scene with a charred chest from what looks to be a bout with electricity, it urged one fan on Twitter to posit the question, “WTF is Shazam going to do?” with the moment put side-by-side with Johnson’s intimidating looking character.
This query caught the eye of Dwayne Johnson himself, who simply replied with, “Not a f—–g thing,” and signed it Black Adam. Gulp.
Zachary Levi has yet to comment on Johnson’s trash talk, but it’s taunting like this that makes fans even more excited to see both of them square off on screen together. Currently, the first round of seeing these two champions exchange blows is in its infancy, as both will remain solo for at least a while longer.
You’ll see what sort of tricks both these godly fighters have in store for each other when “Black Adam” strikes July 22, 2022, while “Shazam! Fury of the Gods” arrives June 2, 2023. Place your bets now.
