After much speculation, Dwayne Johnson has finally broken his silence on the Black Adam and Superman story, which had left fans wondering about the future of Superman. It started after Henry Cavill made an exit from the Superman series in the DC Universe, post the appointment of new co-heads James Gunn and Peter Safran. It was touted that the potential sequel to Black Adam was also shelved.
Albeit, Henry Cavill appeared as Superman in DC's latest release, Dwayne Johnson-starrer ‘Black Adam’, which left fans excited for more Superman appearances in the future. It all comes after DC also shelved the third instalment of the ‘Wonder Woman’ by Patty Jenkins, starring Gal Gadot
Now as per a report by Variety, Dwayne talked about the future of Black Adam and said, "All that I can do, and all that we could do when we were making Black Adam, was to put our best foot forward and surround ourselves with the best people and deliver the best movie we could. Our audience score was in the 90s. Critics took a couple shots, but that’s just the business of it. It’s almost like when you have a pro football team and your quarterback wins championships and your head coach wins championships and then a new owner comes in and says, ‘Not my coach, not my quarterback. I’m going to go with somebody new.'”
The new ‘Superman’ film is scheduled for release in 2025. It will be penned by James Gunn and titled ‘Superman: Legacy’. James Gunn along with Peter Safran are also working on a film titled ‘Supergirl: World of Tomorrow’ apart from a new Batman and Robin movie, titled ‘The Brave and the Bold’, as part of the new slate of the DC Universe.
