After Zack Snyder’s Justice League that was released in 2021, there has been a heap of rumors about the continuation of the SnyderVerse and whether the American film director is going to bestow DC fans with more films or not. However, there hadn’t been any official statement with regard to the same.

But Dwayne Johnson might as well have confirmed the end of SnyderVerse.

It looks like fans who had been putting on a brave face but secretly praying for a Justice League 2, might just have to bid farewell to their hopes for good.

Dwayne Johnson talks about wanting a Black Adam v. Superman movie

Dwayne Johnson has played a crucial part in reinstating Henry Cavill’s Superman in the DCEU after a prolonged period of static activity with regard to the latter’s character. And Johnson had gone out of his way to ensure the same.

In a recent interview with CinemaBlend, The Rock talked briefly about his upcoming movie and how the sole reason behind a Black Adam standalone was that he could have a film revolving around Black Adam v. Superman in the future.

Upon being asked whether or not he would be interested in making a movie wherein Superman fights his character, Black Adam, Johnson replied in the affirmative. “Absolutely. That is the whole point of this, man,” he said. 

He also mentioned how he’d been “listening and been wanting to address fans for years” with regard to bringing a Black Adam v. Superman showdown on the screen. The former professional wrestler had simply been waiting for someone to step up and address the fans and say that their wishes have been duly noted.

In the interview, the Baywatch star also shed light on how a whole new era is in the making in the DC universe and might have just revealed that the SnyderVerse was officially done for.

“I have been saying for some time, there’s a new era in the DC Universe that’s about to begin. And what I meant by that was introducing a brand new character. It’s not a sequel, not an existing IP. It was… you know, Black Adam.”

The Jungle Cruise actor remarked how a couple of years ago, nobody had even been aware of Black Adam’s existence, besides him and his crew members. “What I really meant by, ‘This is a new era in the DC Universe,’ is listening to the fans,” he added. “And doing our best to give the fans what they want.”

That being said, the SnyderVerse has been as good as dead for quite a while now with no new projects like Justice League 2 in the works. And from the way it looks, there aren’t going to be any more films by Zack Snyder’s side in the DCEU anytime soon. At least none that anyone is aware of.

The SnyderVerse’s end would indeed denote the end of an era. But Johnson did reassure fans that DC is in the middle of coming up with something entirely new, so that might just balance it all out.

Black Adam is set to release on October 21, 2022.
