Dwayne Johnson’s dreams for DC have been shattered along with the failure of Black Adam. The WWE star who entered the failing DCEU in the hope to uplift its status through his stardom only ended up adding another name to the list of flop DC films. Ever since the failure of Black Adam, nothing has been going on with DC as per Johnson’s plan. The exit of Henry Cavill was just the beginning. After the poor performance of Black Adam at the box office there have been reports that Johnson’s relationship with Warner Brothers has been degrading.
Dwayne Johnson’s Souring Relationship with WB
There have been reports that the Jumanji actor is on bad terms with the makers of the film, WB. It was rumored that The Rock unfollowed the accounts of WB and the Black Adam. Though Johnson later clarified that the information was completely false and that he never followed either of the accounts. Reports also suggested that Johnson met the CEO of WBD, David Zaslav to pass a multi-year plan for DC. As per insiders WB and Johnson were never on the same page from the very beginning. Johnson especially requested the cameo of Henry Cavill in his debut DC movie which gave fans false hope to once again see Cavill as Superman.
Dwayne Johnson’s Deleted Tweet Revealed his True Feelings
In a deleted tweet of January 14, 2023, Johnson shared a controversial tweet that became the center of attraction. Though there has been no clarification on the tweet about what and why Johnson tweeted that but it surely justifies the news of the degrading relationship between WB and the San Andreas star. Many feel that it is high time for WB to be answerable for their decisions which continue to spoil DCEU more. It is evident by the tweet that Johnson is surely referring to Warner Brothers and is expressing his dissatisfaction and frustration through his words.

For the time being it is clear that the WWE star is having some serious issues with DCEU that needs to be resolved to bring Black Adam once again on screen.
