An aspect that Black Adam made real was the rivalry between Teth Adam and Superman. Dwayne Johnson and Henry Cavill were to face off against each other in the future of the DC Universe were there ever to be a future for the two together. While a lot has shifted for the DCU as of late, a loss that has been deeply felt is that of Henry Cavill as Superman.
Even though it could be difficult for the two actors to face off in the DCU, outside the franchise, it could be much different. The battle between the two heroes had been a highly anticipated one but one which would never come to be. However, Hobbs And Shaw is one spin-off movie which could bring Cavill in its sequel.
Henry Cavill Could Join Hobbs And Shaw Alongside Dwayne Johnson
While seeing Henry Cavill as a villain would be a rare occurrence, it would not be impossible. The actor portrayed August Walker, the antagonist of the movie. His range of roles showed how even though the sequel to Hobbs And Shaw has been put to hold at the moment, he still has a chance of becoming the villain of his movie. Hobbs is one of the integral characters in the Fast and the Furious franchise and the focus is likely to come back on him eventually.
The terrorist group in the first movie, Eteon had a director who was yet to be revealed. This leaves Cavill a perfect opportunity to fit into the story without the addition of an entirely new character. It is no doubt that Dwayne Johnson wants to work with the Man of Steel actor considering the amount of effort he put into bringing him back for the role of Superman. Even though Black Adam did not do so well in theatres, it was not unnoticed the amount of effort every individual had put into the movie.
The Possibility Of A Hobbs And Shaw Sequel Is Thin But Not Nil
Hobbs And Shaw was a spin-off movie that came after Jason Statham had been introduced in the Fast and the Furious franchise. The character of Hobbs and Shaw often clashed with each other. This was a perfect base to set up a friendship that gets rooted in a fluctuating relationship of care and dislike.
One reason that the sequel had been pushed so much was due to Dwayne Johnson’s busy schedule with Black Adam. Now that the sequel for that has been pushed away for a long time, it is not impossible for Hobbs And Shaw to pick up where they left off.
Black Adam is now available to watch on HBO Max.
