The events that have taken place in recent times for the DC Universe have been rather conflicting with Henry Cavill being let go and no concrete idea of where Black Adam stands. The wait had been long for Dwayne Johnson to finally break his silence and say something regarding the matter and much to the fans’ satisfaction, the time has come.

Dwayne Johnson addressed the audience recently on Twitter regarding the future of his character and when he could be seen in the DCU again. He further discussed about the possible bad blood between him and James Gunn or rather, the lack thereof. The decisions that the CEO has made have not been well received and yet they have been the right ones.

Dwayne Johnson Addressed The Future Of Black Adam

The silence from Dwayne Johnson had made fans believe that Black Adam was out of the DCU and no movie nor any appearance would be made by the character. However, the actor has finally spoken regarding the matter and cleared it out for the audience as to when he would be returning. The Rock specified that he and James Gunn talked with each other and agree on the fact that Black Adam has no role to play in the initial phase of the DCU.

“James Gunn and I connected, and Black Adam will not be in their first chapter of storytelling. However, DC and Seven Bucks have agreed to continue exploring the most valuable ways Black Adam can be utilized in future DC multiverse chapters.”

This implies that while Johnson will return as the character in the future, a sequel to Black Adam will not be happening any time soon. This could very well have hinted at a possible return of the character in an Elseworlds arc that could take place in the future of DCU.

Where Could Black Adam Return In The DCU?

One very compatible storyline for the character and Johnson to return in the DCU could be that of the Elseworlds arc. This arc sees a lot of different versions of universes taking place with Black Adam being a part of many of them. While in one Universe he fights his own banishment and returns to earth, other universes too have various versions of him.

Elseworlds could show the multiple possibilities and bring Black Adam back in numerous ways so as to bring back Dwayne Johnson. Another aspect that could be made possible with the arc is the return of Henry Cavill as Superman.

 Black Adam is available to stream on HBO Max
