Dwayne Johnson doesn’t leave a chance to attack the old heads at Warner Bros. Studios for their decisions regarding the DC Universe. With the rumors of Henry Cavill returning in the shoes of the Kryptonian in the upcoming Black Adam increasing day by day, it’s almost confirmed that Superman is back. It can’t be denied that all this could never happen if it was not for our beloved Rock.

Dwayne Johnson has been hinting at a Superman vs Black Adam soon after the project was announced. The former WWE Star always pays heed to his fans and similarly, he knew that bringing back Henry Cavill will cheer up the audience like nothing else- mainly with the superhero being absent for so long from the DCEU canon. 

Dwayne Johnson praises the new WB Ownership 

The misdeeds of the old Warner Bros. regime are not unknown to any pop-culture fanatic anymore. The whole Snyder Cut incident itself explains the former owners of the company. But with his commitments, the new CEO David Zaslav made it clear that Warner Bros. Discovery is going to make major changes and DC will also get a makeover where mainly theatrical event films would be released.

With the coming back of Henry Cavill, it can be said that the studio really seems to work on its words. On this, Dwayne Johnson said during a press tour of the movie that it is the fruit of the hard work of 6 years. He claimed that following the existing leadership, we usher in a new era and Black Adam taking care of the fans is the next step towards it.

“This serves not only Black Adam, but it serves the larger DC Universe. But man, more importantly than that, it takes care of the fans, and that’s what you want your lead foot to be. And yes, phone calls and meetings, but man, it was years…this was six years to get that done. I’m gonna say that again – six years, we first started talking about this, and they kept saying no. Now that leadership isn’t there anymore, because we usher in a new era in the DC Universe, and we usher out an old era.”

A few days back, appearing in an interview, the San Andreas actor also attacked the old group of heads about how the studio has left the Man of Steel “been on the sidelines for too long”. The Rock’s reputation has undoubtedly elevated after his efforts in bringing back the star performer of DC. Although it will be only a 100% guaranteed Henry Cavill appearance once the movie drops, still the audience’s excitement is at its peak.
