Shazam: Back in 2014, Dwayne Johnson confirmed that he had been cast as the villainous DC Comics character Black Adam, a frequent foe of superhero Shazam. Johnson did not provide any more details at the time but now he has shared a photo with Henry Cavill, marked with the hashtag “#DCWorldsWillCollide,” sparking speculation that Cavill’s Superman and Johnson’s Black Adam will appear together in a DC movie, possibly before Shazam is due to hit the big screen in 2019.
