Zachary Levi Reacts to Report That Dwayne Johnson Blocked Black Adam from Appearing in 'Shazam 2' End Credits Scene

Zachary Levi is commenting on the report that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson blocked his character Black Adam from appearing in an end credits scene for Shazam! Fury of the Gods.

In a recent interview, director David F. Sandberg confirmed that characters from Black Adam were slated to appear in the end credits scene.

“There were supposed to be characters from [Black Adam’s] Justice Society, but that fell apart three days before we were going to roll cameras,” he told THR. “So, Peter Safran, who produced this movie and Peacemaker, made some calls, and thankfully, Jen Holland and Steve Agee were able to come by on very short notice.”

TheWrap just reported that it was Dwayne himself who blocked the Black Adam actors from appearing in the scene and he reportedly also blocked Zachary from appearing in Black Adam.

On Tuesday afternoon (March 21), Zachary took to his Instagram Stories to comment on the story.
