Despite being regarded as one of the biggest movie stars in Hollywood, Dwayne Johnson has often been criticized for the lack of diversity in his filmography. And even though his electrifying persona, which the actor acquired during his wrestling days, has elevated his career into the top realm of the industry, it’s understandable why fans have grown tired of this gimmick.
And it’s about high time that the people champion’s deliver something new and original, as it seems that fans aren’t more entertained by witnessing The Rock portraying the same character in every movie.

Dwayne Johnson gets trolled by fans for playing the same character in every movie
Even though Dwayne Johnson has been deemed one of the nicest and most entertaining celebrities in the industry, it’s understandable why fans have grown tired of Johnson playing The Rock in every movie. And even though it was entertaining in the beginning, the Brahma Bull’s magic has been wearing off lately.
And considering his continuous output of monotonous loud action flicks, fans have been calling out the Black Adam actor for it. Fans have hilariously blasted the actor by trolling his weird obsession with jungles. The Jumanji actor has starred in a plethora of movies that revolve around the trope of the jungle, and fans have grown tired of it.
"So this movie is set in the Jungle and-"
Producer: "Hold on a moment I'm *contractually obligated* to give Dwayne Johnson a call if there's a movie with a jungle in it" pic.twitter.com/AraWMhEfka

Something funny ? Dwayne Johnson is the man who plays the exact same damn jungle character in every single role, either that or ~ black Adam. He barely has any depth and it’s the same character type all of the time

Dwayne Johnson plays the same role over and over. They’re just different movie titles.

How is Dwayne Johnson the highest paid actor when he plays the same role in every movie and could be copy pasted into future movies

And it isn’t just the fans who have called out The Rock for his lack of range, even his own WWE peer Dave Bautista didn’t shy away from taking a dig at the actor. And considering the recent failure of his ambitious Black Adam, fans will expect The Rock to finally deliver something new.

Black Adam’s failure might finally convince Dwayne Johnson to change his ways
Despite Dwayne Johnson’s massive influence in the entertainment industry, his most passionate project Black Adam wasn’t able to live up to the expectations and was a colossal failure. And it isn’t hard to understand why it failed, as it was yet another generic action flick where Dwayne Johnson was portraying himself.
And considering its failure, fans are hopeful that after years of pumping a plethora of mediocre loud action flicks, Johnson might finally try something different to win back the audience.

And even though The Rock may not return to play the role of Black Adam anytime soon (if ever), fans will expect that its disastrous performance at the box office is a wake-up call for the actor.
Black Adam is available to stream on HBO Max.
