The film has witnessed a lot of hype due to its casting and rumors. One of the rumors includes the potential return of Henry Cavill as Superman. Since the release of Zack Snyder’s Justice League, we have not seen the actor don the suit.

The promotion of Black Adam

Since the unofficial cancellation of the Snyderverse, DC Entertainment has been moving in a different direction. So, the studio needs this film to succeed, as its failure can further damage the DC Extended Universe.

Previously, Dwayne Johnson had appeared at one of the test screenings for Black Adam and asked the audience their opinion of the movie. This event was recorded and released on the Internet, which eventually went viral.

The makers of the film have also not directly commented on the rumored inclusion of Henry Cavill as Superman. This can also be another tactic of the studio to attract the possible Snyderverse fans as they would be interested in seeing if the rumors are true.

Popcorn in Black Adam tubs?
