The Rock Teases the SnyderVerse in Black Adam Promo

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has become a force to be reckoned with, not just because of his commanding presence on the big screen but for also respecting his audience by heeding their calls. One of those calls asked for the revival of the SnyderVerse that has now become a lost cause ever since Zack Snyder‘s exit from the DC that he helped build from the ground up. The whiplash left behind in the wake of the director’s exponential rise and fall within WB left behind the prodigal DC Extended Universe, around which is centered every CBM project since the 2013 era.

In a sign of heartfelt respect for the contribution of Snyder, The Rock along with his Black Adam team now recreates a kaleidoscopic view of every moment that represents the best of DCEU. The new promotional 60-second video teases the conception of Henry Cavill‘s Superman, Ben Affleck‘s Batman, Gal Gadot‘s Wonder Woman, and Jason Momoa‘s Aquaman across the featured entirety of the SnyderVerse, along with an additional shot of Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn.

Fans Bow Down to The Rock’s Support for the SnyderVerse

In what can only be stated as a power move on The Rock’s part, the new Black Adam featurette comes weeks after the Warner Bros. Discovery chief, David Zaslav and his management formally removed any association with Zack Snyder’s Justice League, recognizing only the 2017 release of Joss Whedon as the official one. The news was a minor scrape in the array of head-on collisions that came after David Zaslav had taken over WB and its subsidiaries, including DC Films.

But after months of hopelessness and mourning on the fans’ part, even a momentary recognition of the existence of Snyder’s creation feels like a deluge of relief. The SnyderVerse, as the conception trilogy of DCEU had otherwise become to be known, has given rise to numerous petitions, outcry, movements, and fan protests with the hopes that it would be restored. However, all efforts have proven futile in the face of a juggernaut like Warner Bros.

However, with The Rock now standing as a voice for the people, the possibility of lending SnyderVerse its deserved share of respect gains headway by a multitude. Even though no assurance has been given by either The Rock or his Black Adam team about the revival of the said original trilogy characters, it still leaves a gap open for discussion in the aftermath of the new teaser.

Black Adam premieres on 21 October 2022.
