Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s movie Black Adam, is all set to release on October 21, 2022, marking the debut of the actor in the DC Extended Universe. Along with the movie’s release come lots of headlines about Henry Cavill’s possible return as Superman.
The Rock has consistently teased the audience about the return, and as the release date grows closer, the speculations continue to rise. Recently, he confirmed that his superhero, Black Adam, will absolutely fight Superman in the DCEU, sometime in the future.
Black Adam vs. Superman: A Possibility?
During an interview with CinemaBlend, as part of the press tour for his movie, the Fast & Furious actor was asked about the future of Black Adam and whether a fight between him and Superman is a likely possibility. Dwayne Johnson did not dodge the question and simply replied that that is his absolute intention.
“Absolutely. That is the whole point of this man. Thank you for asking that. And I have been saying for some time, there’s a new era in the DC Universe that’s about to begin.”
He suggested that a new era for the DC Extended Universe might only begin after an epic fight with Superman. He also said that this new era will be all about listening to what the fans want and making them feel heard.
”But also what I really meant by, ‘This is a new era in the DC Universe,’ is listening to the fans and doing our best to give the fans what they want. And maybe, sometime down the road — and I went through this in pro wrestling — is you can’t always give them what you want. But you’ll always know that we’re listening.”
Even though Dwayne Johnson has hinted, quite a few times, about Superman’s return, the confidence in his words regarding the fight just might have been enough to confirm the fans. He stated that all the goals and intentions are towards building this new era of DCEU, fans cannot wait to see what it means for their trailblazer superheroes and if they will actually return.
What Might Happen in the Black Adam and Superman Face-off?
Now, with endless hints of Henry Cavill returning as Superman, one cannot help but wonder what a fight between Black Adam and the Man of Steel would look like.
Even though Black Adam and Superman do not have the same powers as each other, their strengths, durability, and flight are quite similar. While on one hand, Black Adam is magically enhanced, on the other, Superman gains his powers from the sun, being a Kryptonian. This gives him powers like X-ray vision, heat vision, and more. It is said that Black Adam, sometimes, might be more powerful than Superman himself. All of this only takes fans’ excitement to greater levels with them highly anticipating what Black Adam does for DCEU’s next era. The movie will also feature several other DC characters, including Hawkman, Dr. Fate, Cyclone, and Atom Smasher, forming the superhero team, the Justice Society.
Black Adam will hit the theatres on October 21, 2022.
