Let’s talk about the future plans of DC Comics for the BLACK ADAM movie.
In April 2017, Johnson stated that DC Films plan on Black Adam and Shazam appearing in a future film together. Henry Cavill, who portrays Superman in the DCEU, said in April 2018 that there were plans for Johnson’s Black Adam to face off against Superman in the future, though he believed this will take place after Black Adam and Shazam collide.
Dany Garcia stated in May 2021 that Johnson and the other producers planned to make multiple Black Adam films during their “long-term relationship with DC”, and Hiram Garcia reiterated in July that there was potential for Cavill and Johnson to appear in a future project together as Superman and Black Adam.
That November, Hiram elaborated that they already had an outline for future films and spin-offs featuring Black Adam and the JSA that would be dependent on the first film being a success; and added later that other characters beyond Shazam and Superman were being considered as potential future rivals for Black Adam such as Wonder Woman.
In October 2022, Johnson confirmed future plans for Black Adam to fight Superman in the DCEU and reaffirmed plans for the character to crossover with Shazam.
In a separate interview, Dwayne Johnson stated that the character will interact with various characters within the DCEU continuity, while there are also options for iterations of characters that exist in their own separate universes (namely The Batman and Joker) to crossover through a multiversal scenario.
Furthermore, he confirmed Black Adam serves as phase one of new storytelling in the DCEU, in the same vein as the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s manner of presenting their film slates in phases.
On October 18, Garcia and Flynn revealed that there were already plans for a sequel with the hopes of having it out sooner than later. So we will next sequel of Black Adam in the DC movies future soon with SUPERMAN and SHAZAM films. Till you have to wait for some years.
