CBMB: Black Adam May be the McGuffin of Suicide Squad

By Muuka Muyumba

The Wrap’s Umberto Gonzalez is reporting that he has it on good authority that Dwayne Johnson’s introduction to the DC Films Universe will actually be in Suicide Squad 2.

The Suicide Squad will reportedly be tasked with tracking down a “weapon of mass destruction” in the form of Johnson’s Black Adam, the classic Shazam villain. Therefore, the villain would be a functional McGuffin (an object or device in a movie or a book that serves merely as a trigger for the plot) of the plot which would be a new spin for a superhero film. Johnson had been hinting at some surprises regarding this character including the possibility of seeing him before his solo film.

Johnson is an extremely busy man who has his slate of films set for at least the next 5 years, and starring in Suicide Squad 2 wouldn’t be a stretch, especially if his only action will be in the last 3rd of that movie.  Suicide Squad 2 looks to return the main miscreants of Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie) and Deadshot (Will Smith) with some new team members sure to surprise. If Black Adam is the big bad or McGuffin then the Squad will definitely need a magical character on the team.

Diablo (Jay Hernandez) was killed at the end of Suicide Squad 1 and the Enchantress (Cara Delevingne) is rumored not to be returning for 2.
