This is how Dwayne Johnson’s “Black Adam” is linked to the other DC films
Does Black Adam (Dwayne Johnson) exist in the same universe as Shazam (Zachary Levi), Superman (Henry Cavill), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) and Co.? The answer to this question was given by “Black Adam” producer Hiram Garcia.
“Black Adam” with Dwayne Johnson is coming. After The Rock himself hosted an animated preview of the film on the DC FanDome, the last doubts should now have been dispelled. But how does “Black Adam” fit into the rest of the DC universe, which with the DCEU, films like “Joker” and “The Batman” and multiverse gimmicks like “The Flash” is now quite confusing?
Hiram Garcia, who is closely involved in the creation of “Black Adam” as a production partner of Dwayne Johnson, now provided the answer to Collider.
The next DC mini-universe
“There have been and are many conversations about how it will all look like […]. Unfortunately, I can’t reveal too much about it as this is still a work in progress, but I can say that we are very focused on building the world with Black Adam and the Justice Society Of America (JSA). “
Pretty spongy, but what it most likely means is what we’ve seen on other DCEU films lately:
Instead of relying on a closely linked universe and “Avengers” crossover films as in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), every DCEU film series (“Aquaman”, “Wonder Woman”, “Black Adam” etc.) nominally plays in the same world, more than allusions and mentions to the other heroes, there won’t be any more.

Black Adam vs. Shazam possible
At least Garcia explicitly confirmed that Black Adam’s archenemy Shazam (Zachary Levi) exists in the same world 123Movies. Only logical, since both figures draw their strength from the same source. “And believe me when I say that we have very big ambitions for all of these characters and the storylines we want to tell with them.”

Basically, “Black Adam” will initially only be about the Justice Society Of America, as Garcia emphasized again in the interview. We are really looking forward to introducing the JSA and especially Hawkman, who is one of the most popular DC heroes.

“That these heroes are playing in the same sandpit as Black Adam will be fantastic,” says Garcia. “And the established fans of these characters are sure to be very excited when they see the elements from the classic storylines that inspire us when we bring them together. […] Hawkman, Dr. Fate, Atom Smasher and Cyclone will have their hands full no matter how we make them interact with Black Adam. “
When is “Black Adam” coming?
“Black Adam” is due to hit German cinemas on December 23, 2021. However, this date will be difficult to meet, as filming will not start until the beginning of 2021 due to Corona. A blockbuster of this size usually takes a year to film and post-produce, so we’re assuming a theatrical release in early 2022.
