    I'd love it if Superman had a fight or two with Black Adam in the comics and beat the snot out of him until he's black and blue. If nothing else, than to shut up the fan boys who think Black Adam is more powerful (when he's not) and would win (when he wouldn't).

    No, I'm not interested in seeing Black Adam fight Super Necksnapper on the big screen. I think it was a major mistake for the "Shazam" movie to remove Black Adam as it's main villain, especially considering who the director is replacing BA as the main villain of the movie. Black Adam is a Captain Marvel villain, NOT a Superman villain. So, it doesn't make a whole lot of sense to place Black Adam in the next Man of Steel film as it's villain. I'd much rather see a villain that hasn't been used, such as Brainiac. Why would Black Adam want anything to do with Super Necksnapper? This should be Captain Marvel's problem, not Super Necksnapper's.

    However, from a money standpoint then this move makes perfect sense. Who replaced Brendan Fraser in the Journey to the Center of the Earth Franchise? The Rock. Who breathed new life in the Fast & the Furious Franchise when his character was introduced? The Rock. Who impressed the audience with his performance as Roadblock in G.I. Joe: Retaliation, almost getting a sequel made? The Rock.

    Dwayne Johnson has been called a Franchise Saver and that is exactly why Black Adam will appear in MoS 2 because the bigwigs know that franchise is in deep trouble and want to desperately save it. So, what do they do to solve that problem? They bring in the Rock so that he can breathe new life into the movie and rake in a bucket load of money for them. As if that will save the movie, though. NOTHING can save that franchise IMO, except writing Super Necksnapper as he is in the comics. But the movie creators have already expressed they are not interested in a "cardboard cutout".

I was excited at the thought of Black Adam in the Shazam movie. Now that I know Black Adam won't be in the Shazam movie but will be in the Superman movie...well I feel like they've ruined 2 movies.

I'd prefer Black Adam in a Shazam movie and would settle for a solo movie but I don't want him in the Superman movies as they do suck as they stand currently.

We just might get a Cap and Supes crossover though!
