The original Shazam! was released on April 3 and grossed over $364 million worldwide.
The superhero origin story followed young orphan Billy Batson (Asher Angel) who gains the ability to transform into an adult superhero (Levi) by saying the word shazam!
Black Adam is the nemesis of Shazam and also gains powers after uttering the magic word. It is expected that Johnson and Levi will be crossing paths at some point on the big screen.
