DC’s Black Adam is one of the last hopes for Warner Bros. who plan on salvaging everything they can considering how things haven’t been working out for WB. The major movie studio has been involved in providing the movie with all the marketing tactics at their disposal, and Dwayne Johnson’s doing his part too.

However, it seems like Johnson’s efforts have been overlooked by a section of fans. The 50-year-old actor was recently victim to a barrage of disgusted boos from the public during a Q&A, which only goes on to tell us how out of touch some fans are especially after all the work that Johnson has done for Black Adam up to its release.

Black Adam Star Dwayne Johnson Booed At Comic Con

Dwayne Johnson is one of Hollywood’s most loved actors ever. The actor started off in the 90s playing his own dad in That ’70s Show, eventually securing a role in The Mummy Returns and further success with Fast Five, which was his first big box office success.

It would seem almost bizarre to think that one could ever boo the actor who has pretty much a clean slate in terms of celebrity controversy. But it seems like the lot at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con are not too fond of Johnson judging from recent events.

The San Andreas star recently made an appearance at a Q&A at the SDCC where he was asked whether or not Teth Adam would be able to beat Superman, to which he replied-

“That’s a great question… don’t threaten me with a good time, cause I’m going to answer that question. Well, I will say, as you guys know, because we’re all in deep with this mythology, and it’s been an age-old question of who would win a fight between Black Adam and Superman. Pound for pound, they’re pretty close. I guess it probably all depends on who is playing Superman; I’m just going to say that. I’ll leave it at that.”

Here’s the ensuing response from the audience-

It seems like there were a lot of Henry Cavill fanatics there in the crowd who didn’t take The Rock’s presumption of another actor playing Clark Kent too well, let alone beat Superman.

Dwayne Johnson Defended By Fans Furious At SDCC Crowd

Dwayne Johnson definitely doesn’t deserve all the hate he got for those ambiguous comments about the uncertainty of who Superman’s new actor will be. Fans have been pretty quick to forget that Johnson is one of the few actors working for WB who have been working day and night to make sure their movies are a success.

The 50-year-old actor has been visiting test screenings to survey fan comments about the movie, and ironically he’s also reported to have been a mediator for the rumored agreement that has been reached between Warner Bros and Henry Cavill regarding his role as Superman.

The reaction to the negative feedback given by the crowd at the SDCC has understandably made the Dwayne Johnson/ Black Adam camp pretty angry, and they’re voicing their disappointment on Twitter-

A switch wouldn’t be bad-

You’re telling me it’s just that one crowd? –

Exactly, he’s just doing his job-

Not a pleasant crowd-

This user makes a fair point-

The audience’s reaction to Johnson’s comments is honestly straight-up disrespectful. The DC fanbase really needs to sort itself out before even putting in demands for a worthwhile DC movie.

Black Adam will release in theaters on October 21, 2022.
