Cavill Confirms Plans for Superman/Black Adam Fight (Then Walks it Back)


Fans awaiting more definitive news about Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson's upcoming Black Adam movie will have to keep waiting.

MTV's Josh Horowitz interviewed Man of Steel Henry Cavill at this past weekend's CinemaCon. Horowitz posed a fairly straightforward question regarding the future intersections of the DCEU: "Are we going to see you and Dwayne go toe-to-toe at some point?"

What followed ultimately can be summed up as "maybe." Watch Cavill's full, qualifier-packed response below:

First, Cavill confirmed that if there is a Black Adam in the DCEU, it'll definitely be played by Johnson. He then pointed out that, accepting the premise of a Johnson-played-Black Adam, the initial confrontation would probably be against Shazam (who will be played by Zachary Levi), Black Adam's main nemesis: "I'm pretty sure it'll be a Shazam-Black Adam thing first. If it does happen, it would make sense that way."

Cavill did pose some alternate theories, though. "Maybe it'll be a Superman movie and Shazam will come and help," Cavill said. "That's kind of stealing his limelight though."

A Black Adam film is still in pre-production and is set to star Dwayne Johnson. Meanwhile, Shazam!, directed by David F. Sandberg and starring Zachary Levi, will premiere April 5, 2019.
