The Rock Teases Multiverse in DC Extended Universe

The Fast and Furious star has hinted that fans will be seeing more of Keoghan, possibly in The  Batman sequel or Black Adam. Warner Bros has already announced a sequel to The Batman. However, there is no confirmation if the American Animals star would reprise his role in the film or not.

There is also a possibility the studio is planning to introduce the concept of the multiverse in DCEU. Matt Reeves’ The Batman is not based in DCEU and this is the reason it is believed that The Rock’s statement is a hint that fans would see more of the multiverse in DCEU.

However, it is still uncertain if Keoghan would appear as Joker in Black Adam or would have an entirely new character. With the reintroduction of Superman in Black Adam, the studio has a lot to figure out. It includes the absence of the last five years following the events of the Justice League.

Black Adam is the recent addition to the DCEU films. Black Adam is playing in theatres now.
