When Billy Batson becomes Captain Marvel in Shazam!, he won’t do battle with his greatest rival. Yahoo spoke with DC’s Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns, who revealed that Dwayne Johnson won’t appear as Black Adam in Shazam!. Johnson will, however, be a part of the DCEU when he gets his own Black Adam film. Johnson and DC will develop the film at the same time as Shazam!, but it’s believed the two will eventually fight in a film.

Johns said: “We haven’t announced any casting yet. But Dwayne isn’t going to be in this movie. He’s still doing Black Adam, but he won’t be in Shazam!

Shazam! will be directed by David F. Sandberg. It begins filming early next year and is expected to arrive in 2019.
