Black Adam 2 Not Happening At DC According To the Rock
First, Henry Cavill and now Black Adam. In a Twitter post on Tuesday, Dwayne Johnson popularly known as The Rock revealed that Black Adam will not be included in the slate of upcoming movies by DC which was shaken up by Peter Safran and James Gunn after the pair took the over the helm at DC studios back in October.
James Gunn and I connected, and Black Adam will not be in their first chapter of storytelling,” The Rock wrote. “However, DC and Seven Bucks have agreed to continue exploring the most valuable ways Black Adam can be utilized in future DC multiverse chapters.”
Black Adam May Be Making Reappearance In The Future
That being said, Black Adam will be out for the time being, but there is however a possibility that he could be making a reappearance years down the road. And whether or not Johnson could still play the character in the future as he is 50 years old now, and that hulking physique of his gets harder to maintain with time, is yet another question to answer.
