Dwayne Johnson fought for Black Adam to get standalone movie

The action man originally signed on to star as Black Adam alongside Zachary Levi as the titular superhero in Shazam!, which began development in 2014. However, when he got the script, Johnson realised introducing both characters in the same film would do his supervillain "an incredible disservice". Spaeking to Vanity Fair, Johnson said, "When the first draft of the movie came to us, it was a combination of Black Adam and Shazam: Two origin stories in one movie. Now that was the goal - so it wasn't a complete surprise.”
