Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has officially confirmed Black Adam 2. In what has been decreed as this year’s singularly momentous event, Black Adam proved to be the long-hailed savior that DC fans have been praying for. Now, not only did the film experience a metrically immeasurable success at the box office but has exceeded all expectations when it comes to the revival of the flailing DCEU franchise. All that remains is the inevitable coming of Black Adam 2.
Dwayne Johnson Confirms Moving Ahead With Black Adam 2
2022 witnessed the power of Black Adam, the shift of DC’s in-house hierarchy, and the influence that The Rock wields in reality. All three combined then delivered a product that was able to bring back the prodigal son of the DCEU. Even as the world rejoiced in the news and conducted a ceremonious vigil to commemorate the 5-second clip showing Henry Cavill‘s return, Black Adam‘s titular star is already busy preparing for what’s next for the franchise that he helped rebuild and reshape.
The Rock is a powerhouse of talents as he proves increasingly worthy of fan praise and acclaim despite the rather spoonfed and saturated plot of his CBM debut. Even then, what stands out is his ability to be a crowd-puller and deliver an action-packed film whose rather obvious “third act” rectified the most hateful mistake committed by Warner Bros. and DC in recent history. As the movie spectacularly skyrockets to its stratospheric glory, the team at Warner Bros. and DC Films sits with Dwayne Johnson to discuss the next step in this new era aka Black Adam 2.
The Rock’s Black Adam 2 Tease Causes Early Fan Celebration
In response to the mass excitement surrounding the incredible debut of Black Adam, The Rock has been engaging in promoting the film by retweeting and replying to fan reactions almost on an hourly basis. One such reaction managed to garner his attention and steer it toward the follow-up to his 2-day-old movie. Johnson responded with a tweet that has now been tagged as the official confirmation for Black Adam 2.

Although this goes without saying that the crowd is loving DC moving ahead with leaps and bounds, one also needs to reassess what this “exciting time” could entail for the universe that Black Adam has revived at the center of the DCEU. The fans have been demanding a Doctor Fate movie and more of Pierce Brosnan‘s incredibly poised although too limited performance.
Premature news is also circulating about a Hawkman spin-off series that could be in the works, starring Aldis Hodge. The Rock has also teased a Peacemaker crossover which now looks more probable than not given his connection with Amanda Waller and Emilia Harcourt, both of whom are prominently involved with James Gunn’s Peacemaker story.
Considering how all the major DC players are back in their rightful place and the previous management is out of the picture, this could really be exciting indeed if the recent array of films in development at DC paves the path to Justice League 2. From the looks of it, most of the Justice League stars are gearing up for their solo sequels, including Henry Cavill, Jason Momoa, Gal Gadot, and Ezra Miller. Ben Affleck, too, is back as the ambivalently liked DCEU Batman. The possibilities of where DC could go from here are seemingly endless right now.
Black Adam is currently playing in theatres worldwide.
