Henry Cavill’s future as Superman in the DCU is still unclear. Although the actor, who has played the role of Clark Kent in several films, can be seen at least for a brief moment in the mid-credit scene of Black Adam, Warner Bros. has not yet officially confirmed any further projects. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is said to have played an important role in Cavill’s comeback. He and his team really wanted Black Adam to meet Superman.
The Rock criticizes Warner Bros.
However, The Rock’s wish doesn’t seem to have been fulfilled quite so harmoniously. in one Twitter-Video – on the digital launch of Black Adam – the actor tells that those responsible “inexplicably” had no intention of bringing Henry Cavill back into the DCU. Dwayne Johnson also describes the behavior as “inexcusable” that Warner Bros. has shown him here. Only the producers of Black Adam were able to convince in the end.
Black Adam disappointed at the box office
In the video, The Rock also addresses the DC film’s definitively disappointing sales numbers. Black Adam grossed a total of $368 million. Warner Bros. is apparently not even supposed to make a profit with this. But for Dwayne Johnson, the future of Black Adam doesn’t depend on box office results. We can be curious if Warner Bros. shares this idea with The Rock.

Let’s see what James Gunn and Peter Safran have planned for the DCU – the duo are now taking over the creative direction of the DC Universe.
