Behind the scenes

In 2005, New Line Cinema had been pushing the idea of a Billy Batson and the Legend of Shazam! live-action feature film, with Peter Segal as director and Michael Uslan as producer. Actor and former wrestler Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson had agreed to appear in the film as Black Adam, but the project was ultimately abandoned. Nine years later Johnson signed on to play Black Adam in the 2019 film Shazam!.[1] However, in January 2017 it was announced that Black Adam would appear in his own solo film instead.
