The actor stated, “James and DC leadership’s choices match their creative vision of DCU.”
In Los Angeles, Hollywood superstar Dwayne Johnson has said there wouldn’t be a Black Adam sequel anytime soon as the DC Extended Universe (DCEU) undergoes a makeover. The actor gave a status report regarding the fate of his antihero character in the “new DC universe” in a tweet. Black Adam will “not be in their first chapter of storytelling,” according to Johnson, 50, who said he spoke with James Gunn, the new head of DC Studio.
This news follows the declarations by Gunn and DC co-boss Peter Safran that Henry Cavill won’t appear in the upcoming early-days Superman film that Gunn is composing, despite the actor having declared his return to the cape with Warner Bros’ approval, as well as other important statements, such as the withdrawal of Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman 3 and the fact that Black Adam will turn a profit.
HBO Max is also watching Black Adam, which has amassed a global gross of more than $391 million.
This week, Gunn has been active on Twitter, responding to the protests of DC fans against the new administration, defending himself against Justice League actor Ray Fisher, and debunking rumors that Gal Gadot is no longer starring in Wonder Woman 3.
But DC and Seven Bucks have agreed to keep looking at the best methods to use Black Adam in upcoming DC Multiverse chapters.
We’ve known one another for a long time and have always supported one another. It is still the same today, and I will continue to support DC (and Marvel) in their pursuit of victory.
Warner Bros. hired Guardians of the Galaxy filmmaker James Gunn and seasoned businessman Peter Safran as co-chairmen and CEOs of the recently established DC Studios in late October to overhaul the superhero universe that Zack Snyder created.
On Tuesday, he tweeted Johnson’s post and included the comment: “Love @TheRock & I’m always interested to see what he & Seven Bucks do next. I can’t wait to work with you soon
