In the upcoming film Black Adam, Dwayne Johnson will feature as the evil king of Kahndaq, a mythical figure who has famously challenged the Man of Steel on several occasions in combat. The absence of Henry Cavill’s Superman from the films and television series has generated some of the largest controversies so far. Warner Bros. isn’t afraid to highlight other powerful characters even though DC’s best-known powerhouse hero is not present.
Many are looking forward to future confrontations between Black Adam and Zachary Levi’s Shazam and Henry Cavill’s Superman, although neither character is anticipated to feature in The Rock’s DC debut. However, Dwayne Johnson recently teased that his forthcoming superhero action Black Adam might include a Superman cameo as he responded to a fan’s query regarding the same.
Black Adam might have a Superman Cameo
Recently, a supporter commented on one of Johnson’s tweets and expressed his desire to see Superman and Black Adam appear together. The Rock gave a rather upbeat comment in return. The actor stated how he always listens to the fans, stating, “I hear you & I always got you,” in reference to a potential Superman appearance in Black Adam.
From back in the day when I was wrestling in flea markets for $40 bucks a match, all the way to now.
I’ve learned to always listen to the audience because they will always lead you to where you need to go.
I hear you & I always got you 👊🏾😉#BlackAdam @SevenBucksProd https://t.co/gqFlDwb8ud

The future is gloomy for Henry Cavill’s version of Superman as it has been five years since he last appeared in front of the camera as the Man of Steel. It’s unclear when Cavill will return to the DCEU, but Warner Bros. is apparently keen to bring Superman back to the big screen, and the British actor still seems interested in doing so.
Although Dwayne Johnson has long hinted that he would like to face up against Superman and Shazam on the big screen, there is no evidence that this will happen in Black Adam. The Man of Steel’s appearance in the evil DC spin-off would probably serve the same purpose as his cameo in Shazam!, which was to suggest a potential crossover.
Directed by Jaume Collet-Serra, Black Adam will be exploring the origin of Dwayne’s eponymous character and his emancipation from prison 5,000 years later and is all set to release on October 21, 2022.
