Zachary Levi says Dwayne Johnson stopped his Black Adam cameo 2023

Zachary Levi, who starred in Shazam: Fury of the Gods, has revealed that he had a cameo in the 2016 film Black Adam. In addition, characters from Black Adam’s Justice Society of America were planned to appear in the end credits sequence of the sequel, but arrangements fell through. A rumor indicates that Dwayne Johnson prevented the characters from appearing in Zachary’s film and prevented the actor from appearing in his film as well. Zachary shared the news in an Instagram picture and said, “The truth shall liberate you.

A few days after the disappointing performance of Shazam: Fury of the Gods at the American box office, the film’s lead actor speculated on the reasons for the film’s failure. The actor stated on Twitter, “I believe our biggest problem is marketing. Despite the fact that this is an ideal family film, many families are unaware of this fact. Which is very regrettable.” Zachary also stated that the producers intended to link the sequel to Dwayne’s Black Adam, something the former WWE superstar did not approve of.

Zachary Levi says “Truth shall set you free.”

The Wrap claims that Dwayne prevented Black Adam figures from appearing in Shazam! He also rejected the possibility of Zachary Levi appearing in Black Adam. The reason for this was because Dwayne wanted Henry Cavill’s Superman to continue the series. Since then, it has been established that Henry will no longer portray Superman, and there will be no sequel to the original Black Adam picture, which was a financial disaster.

Tuesday, Zachary shared a report from The Wrap with the message, “The truth shall set you free.” Uncertain if there will be a third installment in the Shazam franchise. David F. Sandberg, the film’s director, also corroborated The Wrap’s allegation. After the release of the sequel, he had informed The Hollywood Reporter

“There were going to be characters from [Black Adam’s] Justice Society, but that fell through three days before filming began. So, Peter Safran, the producer of both this film and Peacemaker, made some calls, and luckily Jen Holland and Steve Agee were able to show up on short notice.”

In the comic book universe, Black Adam is Shazam’s archenemy. Instead of starring in the 2019 original picture, Dwayne advocated for his own spinoff. He also convinced Henry to appear in Black Adam.
