Dwayne Johnson Reveals his multi-year plan for Black Adam-Superman Rivalry
WRITTEN BY SARAH KANDARI
With the release of DC's Black Adam in 2022 , fans are now pondering over the new phase of superheroes, anti-heroes, villains, and new theories.
Viewers were estatic with the cameo appearance of Henry Cavill as Superman in the 2022 film. Since, Dwyane 'The Rock' along with many comic fans started dreaming of possibilities for the new franchise.
Dwyane approached the new CEOs of DC, James Gunn and Peter Safran, with an idea of multi-year plan for Black Adam as Superman's arch enemy. He pitched the idea of a "Black Adam and Superman showdown".
However all these ideas of "The Rock" to be the new face of DC were trampled on. James Gunn soon announced that Henry Cavill will no more play Superman. Sources claim that Dwyane was addressing his mind to everyone in DC, "which did not fit well".
Moreover, with Black Adam's little success last year, CEO James Gunn didn't make further plans for the franchise.
Sources assert this was not Dwyane's first demand. For Black Adam's premiere in New York the 'Red Notice' actor requested a tequila bar from the studio. And asked them to serve his brand Teremana Tequila.
Later, the 'Hercules' actor, asked the studio to let him produce the credits for DC League of Super-Pets.
The tenth Adam, played by Dwyane Johnson, is strong and bestowed with the powers of Gods. Yet after thousands of years of imprisonment, rage drives the sense of justice of this new anti-hero in the DC universe. 'Black Adam' available on HBO Max.
