Dwayne Johnson was reportedly offered a cameo in Shazam! Fury of the Gods, however, Black Adam star apparently turned down the offer. DC Universe recently released the Dwayne Johnson starring film, Black Adam, focusing on the iconic antihero. After more than a decade in making, the superhero movie brought the iconic Shazam rival and the Justice Society of America back to life.
Black Adam also saw the return of Henry Cavill’s Superman in the post-credits scene, which was meant to set up his new chapter in the franchise. However, further updates revealed that Henry Cavill will not be returning as Superman. There has been a number of titles scheduled to be released in the coming years, and a few movies have been just cancelled.
There are several changes going on at Warner Bros. Discovery and DC Studios as James Gunn and Patty Jenkins have taken over the company as its heads. However, as per the latest reports, it seems like Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam has had the chance to appear in another DCU film. Replying to a fan’s tweet, The Wrap’s Umberto Gonzalez revealed that Dwayne had been offered to do a cameo in Shazam! Fury of the Gods. However, Johnson turned down the opportunity when asked if he wanted to show up as his DCU character.
Replying to the tweet, Gonzalez wrote, “Rock passed on doing a cameo in Shazam 2 when he was asked.” Johnson, the creative team, Warner Bros. Discovery, and DC Studios are yet to comment on the Shazam! Fury of the Gods report. Meanwhile, Black Adam and Shazam have a deep connection and if Dwayne would have been appear in Shazam 2, then fans will witness an amazing action fight.
In DC comics, he was chosen by the wizard Shazam, who chose Billy Batson to be his champion 5000 years later. Unlike Billy, Teth-Adam drew his powers from Egyptian gods: Shu, Heru, Amon, Zehuti, Aton, and Mehen. However, Shazam’s power came from other mythical heroes: Solomon, Hercules, Atlas, Zeus, Achilles, and Mercury.
