The Rock Tempers Expectations For Black Adam Vs Superman Showdown

After the release of Black Adam, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is tempering expectations for his inevitable showdown with Superman in the DCEU.

WARNING: This article contains IMPORTANT spoilers from Black Adam.Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson Tempers Expectations For The Inevitable Black Adam vs. Superman showdown in the DCEU. After years of being stuck in development hell, Black Adam has finally been released theatrically, bringing Johnson into the greater DCEU. Directed by Jaume Collet-Serra, Black Adam tells the dark backstory of Teth-Adam and how he became one of the most powerful creatures on Earth. Not only did the DCEU picture introduce the Justice Society of America, but it also saw the return of Henry Cavill’s Superman, who hasn’t been seen in the franchise since 2017. Justice League.


Despite the post-credits scene leaked before Black Adam’s worldwide release, the DCEU movie got a lot of attention for Cavill’s Superman cameo when he emerged at the very end of the film to confront Johnson’s character. Though it was a last-minute addition, Johnson had gone over the head of now former DC Films boss Walter Hamada and had the heads of Warner Bros. Pictures convinced to include Cavill’s Superman in a Black Adam cameo appearance. Before and after Black Adam‘s global opening, Johnson had continued to hype the idea of ​​his titular character and Superman as part of his quest for change “the hierarchy of power” in the DCEU.

While the DCEU will certainly see Black Adam and Superman fight it out eventually, Johnson emphasizes that it won’t happen right away. Johnson shares on Twitter that while he plans to show the DC characters on the big screen, it’s “not the next step.” Instead, there has to be a lot of storytelling up front.

How does DC build the fight between Black Adam and Superman?

What’s important to remember about Cavill’s Superman is that although his Black Adam cameo puts on an eventual war, this is the British actor’s first donning the suit in a long time. Despite Superman’s Shazam! and peacekeeper cameos – which weren’t even played by Cavill himself – the franchise hasn’t kept up with Clark Kent in recent years. That’s probably why Warner Bros. Discovery and DC Films Reportedly Developing Man of Steel 2, as they probably want to have Cavill’s character reinstated in the DCEU before rushing him to a showdown with Black Adam. Once Johnson’s character has gone even further in Black Adam 2 and possibly Shazam 3those movies could slowly help build a reason why Black Adam and Superman would be on opposite sides.

It’s understandable not to get that showdown right away, especially since it would be a huge deal for the DCEU if Superman and Black Adam went head to head. One of the Black Adam producers have also emphasized that they see their clash as a long story, which makes perfect sense, especially after Cavill’s Superman has had some time to rebuild his base. While Black Adam seeded the idea that Johnson will eventually fight Superman, it may take a little longer for that to actually happen.
