Black Adam star Dwayne Johnson aka The Rock is shaping up to be one of the most influential figures in the hierarchy of actors who often star in DCEU movies. Henry Cavill as Superman, or even Ben Affleck as Batman were considered to be fan-favorite actors for DC fans, but The Rock is cooking up something of his own!


It is pretty apparent that Warner Bros does not take a liking to Zack Snyder enough to be the main man to orchestrate a bright future for the DCEU, we’re relieved to see that they’re at least trusting Johnson with a role similar to that of the MCU’s Kevin Feige.

The Rock Gives Update On DC’s Leadership Issue

Dwayne Johnson is one of the highest-paid actors in the world and there’s no shortage of major movie studios that would cast him for free, his influence in Hollywood is also pretty far-reaching with a net worth of $800 million!

However, It’s not only about the money- the fame and recognition that came with it landed the 50-year-old actor a role in a major movie project by DC i.e as the titular character for Black Adam. 


There’s been news of the latest update from the San Andreas star regarding Warner Bros’ search for a Kevin Feige-like leader for the DC Universe. Johnson recently spoke to ComicBook where he revealed some interesting details about the leadership problem for DC-

“So today. I feel really confident in the new leadership that’s in here now at Warner Bros. and actively looking now for a… we’re gonna land on some leadership for the DC side, too. So this idea that I’ve been saying for about a year now, about, ‘Hey, this is a new era in the DC universe.’ It’s a new era there, it’s a new era in Black Adam. You saw the end of Black Adam, that’s a new era too as well that we’re bringing in. So I feel good.”

DC currently has no model or a leading figure to take on the role of leading the DC Universe to glory as much as Kevin Feige has successfully done for the MCU. There have been various contenders like Henry Cavill (Superman) or Zack Snyder, but none of them seem to have been presented with the opportunity or approval from the higher-ups at WB.

Fans Positive About The Rock’s Plan To Be DC’s Big Man Himself

It is no lie that The Rock can boost a movie’s replayability up to the max, and who else would DC fans want instead of the multi-millionaire(with all due respect to his stunning net worth) actor to call the shots for the DCEU?

Dwayne Johnson himself delivered the update about the leadership issue for the DC Universe as a whole, and it would only make sense for every fan to think that the now-retired wrestling legend would fancy himself in a “Kevin-Feige” type role for the DC Universe.


Fans on Twitter have been pretty adamant about it, read some of the best tweets below-

Fan approval on the rise-


Exactly! –


He’s got the physique for it-

He said the word! –


We’re pretty sure he’s looking that way lad-


The Rock has been the loudest and biggest voice of the promotion campaigns for his DC movie Black Adam. Not only that, but he’s also branched out his interest in taking the DCEU to higher places, and we’re all in for him in the leadership role.

Black Adam premieres in theaters on October 21, 2022.
