The Rock has comments on the future of “Black Adam” in the DC Universe.
In October, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson starred in his long time passion project and the DC Universe film, “Black Adam”.
The release in theaters was ultimately met with a polarizing response from fans, critics and the box office. Most critics are still split on whether the film was successful or not.
The DC Universe has underwent an overhaul offscreen, with a new team led by filmmaker James Gunn, taking over the studios. It has made the future of characters like Black Adam uncertain.
However, the uncertainty came to an end earlier today when The Rock took to social media and posted a lengthy statement revealing Black Adam’s immediate future. He stated:
“My passionate friends, I wanted to give you a long-awaited Black Adam update regarding the character’s future in the new DC Universe. James Gunn and I connected, and Black Adam will not be in the first chapter of storytelling.”
“However, DC and Seven Bucks have agreed to continue exploring the most valuable ways Black Adam can be utilized in the DC multiverse chapters.
“James and I have known each other for years and have always rooted for each other to succeed. It’s no different now, and I will always root for DC (and Marvel) to win and WIN BIG.”
“You guys know me, and I have very thick skin – and you can always count on me to be direct with my words. These decisions made by James and DC leadership represent their vision of DCU through their creative lens. “
Expressing his gratitude towards the supporters of the film, “The People’s Champion” said:
“After 15 years of relentless hard work to finally make Black Adam, I’m very proud of the film we delivered for fans worldwide.”
“I will always look back on the fan reaction to Black Adam with tremendous gratitude, humility and love. We did great.”
“To my very passionate and vocal Black Adam/Super Hero genre fans – I love you, THANK YOU, and I will ALWAYS LISTEN TO YOU and do my best to deliver and entertain you.”
“What a helluva month – now we all need some Teremana! Have a productive week and happy holidays to you and your families!”
“Black Adam” is now available on both VOD platforms and Warner Brothers Discovery’s streaming service HBO Max.
