Dwayne Johnson reveals why he wanted a standalone film for Black Adam
Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson recently sat down for an interview with Vanity Fair on Thursday.
During the session, Johnson admitted that he convinced Warner Bros. to introduce the character of Black Adam in a standalone film.
The wrestler-turned-actor mentioned, “When the first draft of the movie came to us, it was a combination of Black Adam and Shazam: Two origin stories in one movie. Now that was the target – so it wasn’t a complete surprise.’
He went on to say, ‘But when I read it, I knew in my gut, ‘We can’t make this movie like this. We would be doing Black Adam an incredible disservice.”
The 50-year-old businessman said: “It would be fine for Shazam to have two origin stories in one movie, but it’s not good for Black Adam.”
Johnson added that he called studio management and expressed his concerns. He argued to them that introducing both characters in the same film was not the best idea for both characters.
The Jumanji star explained: ‘I said, ‘I have to share my thoughts here. It’s very unpopular because everyone thought, “Hey, this script is great, let’s make this movie.” I said, ‘I really think you should make ‘Shazam!’, make the movie itself in whatever tone you want. And I think we should separate that as well.”
Additionally, Shazam! hit the big screens in 2018.

The film immediately jumps to the introduction of Black Adam and we gradually learn what happened to make him a villain.
