Shazam! had one of the most delightful superhero mid-credits scene in recent memory, one that establishes the film as the frothy fun-loving younger cousin to the dark DC movies while tying the film into the greater cinematic universe. But its later post-credits scene was a bit more puzzling, introducing a villain that only die-hard Shazam! fans might know instead of the Black Adam tease that many expected, with Dwayne Johnson set to star in a solo film about the Shazam foe. But a new Shazam! deleted scene dropped ahead of the film’s Blu-ray release does offer that Black Adam tease we were expecting. Watch the Shazam deleted scene below.

The first half of 2019 is simultaneously the longest stretch of time I’ve experienced, and the shortest. The longest because the current political climate only worsens, and the shortest because I haven’t had the time to see nearly all the movies I wanted to see. Films like The Farewell, Parasite, Her Smell, The Last Black Man in San Francisco, An Elephant Sitting Still, and The Report evaded me before I sat down to write my best movies of 2019 list, but there are still plenty of great films to distract us — or perhaps remind us — of our most troubling real-life problems.
