Is Black Adam going to be in Shazam 2?
There isn’t any possibility that we will see Black Adam in the sequel because the idea of Black Adam was initially to introduce him in the first film but the makers agreed that there is so much to explore in his story that he deserves a separate standalone movie.
Black Adam will release near around Shazam 2 and they will not have any interaction with each other’s world until a third Shazam film is made. Zachary Levi confirmed the news that the second film will not have any Black Adam cameo because the idea is to introduce his standalone film first.
