Black Adam went from being a conversation to a full-fledged movie, with an official poster, potential cameos, and now talk of a crossover with the Man of Steel himself. During a recent interview promoting Jumanji: The Next Level, Black Adam producer Hiram Garcia opened up about the chances of Superman facing off against Black Adam, telling ComicBook:
“I think the DC Universe is a wonderful universe and we’re open to everything,” Garcia continues, telling the website, “We have big aspirations for it. We’re friends with Henry. [Dwayne] and Henry are friends, it’s a huge comic book brand as well. And I always just loved the idea. Who knows? But man, Black Adam for Superman is really cool. That’d be really powerful.”
The idea that this has already been discussed by producers or the addition of a friendship between Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Henry Cavill is certainly a reason to give this excerpt some legitimacy, as the two are very well-matched in terms of abilities. Recently, it had also been stated by Johnson that there weren’t current plans for a Shazam crossover, but the much darker character could easily fit within the Superman stories we’ve seen so far.
Cavill recently admitted that his time as Superman isn’t over yet, with stories he still feels strongly about telling. This could hopefully bring them together for an epic battle in the DC universe, especially with the notion that the DCEU is laying the groundwork for a loosely connected universe again. Whether or not Superman appears in a Black Adam film or not, the recent confirmation that the JSA (Justice Society of America) will also be included in his standalone film means that even more iconic DC characters will be entering the fray soon enough. Black Adam will hit theaters on December 22, 2021.
