The upcoming Black Adam film has been hailed by DC comics and many fans as the savior of the DC Extended Universe. It stars Dwayne Johnson as Black Adam and will also introduce many more superheroes such as Doctor Fate and Hawkman with the inclusion of the Justice Society of America.
Due to the failure of Justice League and the studio moving on from Zack Snyder’s Justice League, it needs Black Adam and The Flash to succeed. The studio’s decision of snubbing Snyderverse has not been well-received by many DC fans who still want to see the director complete his vision.
Will Superman return in Black Adam?
Fans continue to argue if Henry Cavill will return as Superman as many believed he was the best part of Snyderverse. First introduced as Superman in Man of Steel, his friendship with Dwayne Johnson and rumors of his return have many believing that Man of Steel 2 will be announced.
Previously, Black Adam returned to the shooting stage for a post-credits scene and Dwayne Johnson had stated the character will be included who is strong enough to challenge him. Naturally, fans have theorized this character to be Superman, due to him already being introduced in the DCEU.
Dwayne Johnson believes the Snyderverse is canon
After the release of Zack Snyder’s Justice League, many expected the studio to make it canon over the Justice League from 2016 which was butchered by Joss Whedon according to fans. Much to their disappointment, Josstice League remains a part of the timeline.
But, as reported by @Itssan17 on Twitter, it seems like Dwayne Johnson believes the Snyder Cut to be canon. Digital artist John Waynick, who has worked on the Black Adam film and with Zack Snyder on his Netflix project, claimed Dwayne Johnson knows which is the superior film.
The actor has been dropping hints on the canonization of Zack Snyder’s Justice League for quite some time. Back in July, he asserted that he always listens to the fans while responding to a tweet from a fan asking for a clash between Black Adam and Superman.
Black Adam is set to release in theatres on October 21 of this year.
