Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is a few weeks away from making his DC debut as Teth-Adam in the highly-anticipated Black Adam, which has been in development for over a decade. However, there have been rumors of Henry Cavill’s Superman returning to the DCEU with a post-credit scene in the film. Apparently, The People’s Champion demanded Superman to be in the film.

Insider David Faraci, the former editor-in-chief of “Birth. Movies. Death.,” revealed on the Marvelvision podcast that Johnson insisted on getting Henry Cavill for a scene as Superman in the Black Adam film.

Faraci is clear that Cavill will reprise his role as the Man of Steel in Black Adam‘s post-credits scene. However, the report didn’t set in with people the way it would. Faraci went on to say that the cameo happened “because The Rock demanded it,” going hard at Warner Bros. to make sure Cavill would have the opportunity to play the part again. David Faraci opened up about the mandatory appearance for the Man of Steel.

“Henry Cavill is appearing in ‘Black Adam’ in the post-credits scene. That scoop, nobody cared about it. It’s just– Nobody gave a shit. In fact, I see today, people on Reddit posting, ‘Do you think Henry Cavill will ever return as Superman?’ It’s like, ‘Yes, motherfuckers. He is.’ I got some more information about this.

“Yeah. It’s not, like, specific. It’s all behind the scenes stuff that I thought was kind of fascinating, which is that, the reason why… Henry Cavill has returned as Superman in ‘Black Adam’ is because The Rock demanded it… Like, he went hard, full court press on Warner Bros., and made them go to Henry Cavill and they had to sign a new deal with Henry Cavill, including saying they were gonna develop a new ‘Superman’ movie… And it was all because The Rock insisted…”

Twitter scooper @ViewerAnon said that “Henry Cavill fans are going to be happy moving forward” with DC’s upcoming slate of movies. The scooper followed that up by confirming that The Rock was responsible for this happening:

“I don’t want to step on anyone’s toes, these aren’t my scoops to make, but I think Henry Cavill fans are going to be happy moving forward with DC movies. It seems like the bridge between WB and Cavill has been crossed, and it’s not just a ‘Black Adam’ scene.”

“And yes, I have heard you can thank The Rock for this. He was… insistent the sides come together.”

Johnson has shown more passion for the DCEU in recent memory than any other actor. Due to his pro wrestling background, Johnson is always ready to offer a quote or tease how big his first DC solo movie is going to be. 

If the rumors of Cavill’s return as Superman actually turn out to be true, it should change the game for DC’s future as things look increasingly bleak behind the scenes for years now. Black Adam will be in theaters on Friday, October 21.
