The DCEU has been in a state of flux for years now. With petty grudges between the previous executives at Warner Bros. and the actors from the franchise, the entire situation was toxic. Now word comes that the old regime wanted to dump the current Superman from its cinematic universe.
In an interview shared by @AjepArts on Twitter, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson claims that the former leadership didn’t want Warner Bros. didn’t want Henry Cavill to return to the DCEU as Superman. He explained the process that got Superman back in the game for this movie.
Johnson went through the events and he’s been trying to get Cavill back into the DC universe for six years now. Now Henry Cavill is back for the time being.
“I feel that this serves not only Black Adam, but the entire DC Universe. More importantly than that, it takes care of the fans. And that’s what you want your lead foot to be. So, yes, phone calls, meetings…But, man this was years man. Six years to get that done. I’m going to say that again, six years we kept talking about this, and they kept saying no. Now, that leadership isn’t there anymore, and we usher in a new era of the DC Universe.”
Will see what happens with the future of Black Adam and Superman. The future of the DCEU is depending on the next year’s worth of movies.
