There has been a long-time debate on who is going to win the next fight of the century – Black Adam or Superman? Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has finally spoken on this matter, and it seems the Black Adam star is convinced that his character is not the only force to reckon with.

Warner Bros’ Black Adam rolled out in theaters this October and despite mixed reviews, it received generally favorable reactions. For a new hero on the block, it is safe to say that it did pretty well at the box office.

The Rock seemingly confirms that Henry Cavill’s Superman is more powerful than his character. In a video clip he shared on Twitter, Johnson said:

If we’re going to establish Black Adam as the most powerful, unstoppable force in the DC Universe, we have to bring back the most powerful, unstoppable force of all time, in any universe. You guys know who I’m talking about, of course, that is Superman, and that’s Henry Cavill… there’s no viable, logical way that you can attempt to build out the DC Universe with the most powerful force and the greatest superhero of all time sitting on the sidelines.”

While DC Comics has also confirmed that Black Adam is not as strong as Superman, they are both cut from the same cloth and possess the same level of power. There are just more qualities in Superman that Black Adam does not possess; he is quicker, and even without the help of his powers, he can win any fight.

The former wrestler-turned-actor has been vocal about his plan to bring the Man of Steel into the Black Adam movie. He and Seven Bucks Production’s Dany Garcia and Hiram Garcia battled their way to make this dream happen.


Warner Bros reportedly was not keen on making Henry Cavill return as Superman, but, in the end, The Rock and his team prevailed. The controversial scene was filmed post-production, and some of the cast only learned about it days before the movie’s premiere.

Henry Cavill also expressed his sentiments on wearing the Superman suit once more. The actor confessed that it was a meaningful experience for him, and he was also given the option to choose which version of the suit her wanted to wear. Cavill chose the 2013’s Man of Steel suit.


Fans will have to keep their eyes peeled for more information about Cavill’s return as Superman. In the meantime, catch Black Adam on digital and DVD, 4K, and Blu-ray this January 3, 2023.
