There is a new era in the DC universe. This is something that Dwayne Johnson, the actor also known as “The Rock”, has mentioned on more than one occasion, speaking of changes in DC’s “hierarchy of power”, perhaps mentioning how powerful his character, Black Adam, is. or perhaps implying that he himself has the most power and influence in this universe right now. And without a doubt, it is he who we have to thank for came back Henry Cavill as Superman.

In a short video posted on Twitter, Johnson has mentioned some very interesting details about the return of Cavill. One of the keys is that the studio, Warner Bros, for some reason did not want Cavill to return, however Johnson and his production company, Seven Bucks Productions, insisted so much on Cavill’s return that they managed to bring back the one he himself Johnson considers “the greatest Superman of all time.”

“The studio was not going to bring Henry Cavill back, inexplicably. But we weren’t going to take “no” for an answer, including me. [y su compañía y equipo de producción Seven Bucks]. This has taken years of work, bringing Henry Cavill back. And years of strategic talks, and we weren’t going to take no for an answer.

For us there was no way you could build the DC universe without the greatest superhero ever. Without his participation. It is impossible to do it. […] And that’s why we fought to bring back Superman, Henry Cavill.”

Johnson, in the video, mentions several times that “there has been a change in the hierarchy of power in the DC universe”, which we could take to mean that his Black Adam has arrived, who will apparently be the most powerful character on Earth ( but not from the universe, sure, that’s Superman), but at the same time, it sounds like he’s talking about the ranks of DC studios. Johnson seems to celebrate that there are new leaders at this studio and at Warners (James Gunn and Peter Safran are DC’s new top bosses), however, in his video you can feel the influence that Johnson himself has had in this new era that is beginning for DC. He is the one who has brought Superman back, starting a new series of movies and stories in which we will surely see that his Black Adam He will face Henry Cavill’s Superman.

A Superman that Johnson clearly holds in very high regard.

And it couldn’t be another Superman, Henry Cavill is the Superman of our generation, and in my opinion the best Superman of all time, and I say this with respect to the other actors, especially Christopher Reeve.”

We will have to wait to find out the plans for this new era of DC for Superman, Black Adam and the rest of the characters. In the meantime, the next films we will see released will be Shazam! Fury of the Gods on March 17, 2023, Flash on June 23, 2023 and Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom on December 25, 2023. I wouldn’t rule out the possibility of seeing a scene or cameo from both Black Adam and Superman in these movies, especially in Shazam 2. [[Dwayne Johnson (Twitter) via Deadline]
