Mr. Mind May Be Shazam 2's Villain
If Shazam 2 does happen and the aforementioned parties return, it appears that it may be Mister Mind who will be one of the main villains. In the comics, Mister Mind is a Venusian worm that teams up with Sivana to plan a global worm invasion of Earth.
The DCEU Mister Mind is seen very early on in Shazam in a glass containment unit within the Rock of Eternity, but the glass is later shown to have been broken and the worm escaped. Then, during Shazam's post-credits scene, Mister Mind makes his return. He visits Sivana in his prison cell and proposes that they can work together to achieve their goals and defeat Shazam.
After the first movie followed the New-52 origin story fairly closely, Shazam takes it a step further and ends the movie with the tease of Sivana and Mister Mind teaming up, just as the first volume of Geoff Johns' run did. But, instead of seeing this continue in the next issue, it will likely be Shazam 2 that shows audiences what Mister Mind is all about.
Shazam Villain Black Adam Is Also Getting His Own Movie
However, the main showdown that many fans are waiting to see - and have been since 2014 - is Shazam battling Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson's Black Adam. He is a former Champion in his own right and Shazam! actually does quite a bit to lay the groundwork for his eventual introduction. But, when Johnson's Black Adam does debut, it will be in his own solo movie instead. The Black Adam solo flick has been in the works for a few years now, and even though it still doesn't have a director or any other cast members, Johnson continues to tease that it will begin filming sooner rather than later.
These solo film plans will likely mean that Black Adam is not involved with Shazam 2 in any major way. This will further delay that Shazam and Black Adam fight many have been patiently waiting for, so when could it happen?
There has been some speculation that Black Adam will be a prequel film and could even show some of the events involving the Wizard that Shazam explained, including his defeat. Shazam 2 could see Mr. Mind and Sivana work together to free him and then Shazam 3 could be used to actually bring them face to face. This is just speculation at the moment, but it is important to remember that Black Adam will likely be the character's introduction, and it may be better to hold off on this throwdown so that Billy/Shazam can master his powers.
