These are two comic book movies where fans everywhere have been like “Oh you know there is gonna be a crossover of sorts happening.” Granted we all know the history between the two characters and not to mention a recently released deleted scene from SHAZAM! seems to further reference the big cheese’s arch nemesis.
Well now get ready to rev up the speculation machine even more because now it is being reported that both the SHAZAM! sequel and BLACK ADAM will both be shooting at the same time this July. Both films are currently in pre-production
Now SHAZAM! star Zachary Levi has said previously that the characters would not meet on the big screen until the third installment of the film. But the idea that both schedules align such as this and there is NO crossover seems kind of crazy. It most likely would be in a post-credits scene for SHAZAM! that the pair come in contact, especially since it would then be the lead in to the third film. Along with the concurrent filming schedules of both the release dates could also give clue that during filming something may happen.
BLACK ADAM releases first on December 22nd, 2021 and SHAZAM! 2 follows on April 1st, 2022.
Also this all may just be wishful thinking as the current slate of DCEU films have been standalone and has yielded much success for Warner Bros. There will of course be set photos showing cast members on opposite sets but locations will be the ultimate teller and then again they may just have the day off.
