– As much as everyone would like to see Shazam and Black Adam go head-to-head on the big screen soon, Zachary Levi says we have a while to wait. reports that the Shazam! star was asked about when he’ll meet Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s forthcoming Black Adam, and said that it’s unlikely until Shazam! 3.

“I can say that as far as I know, Black Adam is not going to be in the second Shazam!, because the idea is that they want to go and do a standalone Black Adam movie first,” Levi said. “And then it would kind of be, if we do a third Shazam! and a second Black Adam, kind of [parallel] like that, that’s where we would [meet].”

Levi went on to say that they’re holding off because Black Adam is “like the ultimate bad guy for Captain Marvel, Shazam. Like [Shazam and] Black Adam, they’re doppelgängers right, the evil twin to who I am. So that’s got to be like the final battle, If we do that in the second movie, then where do we go after that? It would just be a movie of us sitting around playing video games for the third one, that would be very boring. Or not [laughs]. I’m a very interesting video game player. So yeah, I think that’s the idea. We’ll definitely [cross over] — the plan is to get there, but just to pace it out however it needs to pace out.”

The Shazam! sequel is currently in development, with Black Adam set to be in his own film directed by Jaume Collet-Serra. It does not have a release date as of yet.
