Dwayne Johnson is currently one of the most familiar faces in the industry and one of the most famous personalities in the world, holding the record of multiple box office hits. The Rock is going to make his next big outing of ‘Black Adam’ for Warner Bros. Discovery, where the actor will play the main character. Apart from all this, the actor seems to have a good relationship with the folks over at DC.
As far as we know, Henry Cavill will be also appearing in the Black Adam movie as a cameo. And this movie paved all sorts of ways to excite DC vs. Marvel fans, and it seems the new plan for Warner Bros. is to focus on getting their DC universe on the right track with these actors.
How Dwayne Johnson Can Change the Fate of DC With ‘Black Adam’
Earlier, David Zaslav’s decision to shelve the HBO Max Batgirl movie featuring Leslie Grace shocked DC fans and the industry. But we know that Dwayne Johnson is very optimistic in nature when it comes to his work and plans for future projects. Earlier he said that a movie could happen and the big list of heroes and villains in the DC universe doubles the possibility. He further added:
“I am optimistic… just my nature is optimistic. And especially when it comes to creativity. Especially when it comes to movies. And especially when it comes to the pantheon of DC superheroes and supervillains. Across the street, we have the pantheon of superheroes and supervillains of Marvel. To me, they can not only exist but they should, in my mind, cross paths one day.”
The fate of the entire company of Warner Bros Discovery is now resting entirely on the shoulders of Dwayne Johnson

Warner Bros Discovery is reportedly delaying certain films to 2023 as they only have enough cash to release 2 major films this year (‘Don’t Worry Darling’ and ‘Black Adam’).

Now, it seems like the entire future of Warner Bros. Discovery is dependent on Dwayne Johnson because he holds so much success rate, and his movies are always back-to-back hits, and now with Henry Cavill, it can be the best way to bring back everything on a right track. Black Adam might be one of the first steps in doing that, as it introduces a whole new set of heroes and anti-heroes.
Black Adam: Dwayne Johnson and Henry Cavill Can Set the Studio on a Right Track
Although DC appears to be struggling with its own complications, an actor like Dwayne Johnson and Henry Cavill might be the two who can actually bring the studio one more mega-blockbuster comic-book movie. After new leadership happened at Warner Bros., there have been constant plans to change the vision and direction of the DC films, but it’s right to assume that this might change because the actor has repeatedly promised the studio that his ‘Black Adam’ movie will forever change the fate of DC universe on the big screen.
Black Adam is set to release in theatres on October 21, 2022.
