With 15 years of work in the movie, Dwayne Johnson truly believes that The Black Adam is the change that DC needs right now. The hype for The Black Adam reached even higher when reports came out that Henry Cavill has been seen filming a scene for the movie in England. The actor was in his Man Of Steel, Superman dress and is most likely to appear in the post-credit scene of The Black Adam.

The movie is not only important for the actor but is also a very important release for the studio itself. WB has been struggling with its finances for some time. With the success rate Dwayne Johnson has, the studio not only plans to bring its superhero universe back n track but its finances as well.

Until now, WB has not disclosed any of the news about Henry Cavill’s cameo in The Black Adam. The studio and the cast of the film are busy promoting the film. With the claims made by Johnson, it would be exciting to see if the movie stands up to the standards set by him or not.

The Black Adam will release on October 21, 2022.
