Dwayne Johnson, The Rock, is psyched after bagging a role in a superhero movie. But now he wants more, he wants his ideal superhero, Superman, to be continued by Henry Cavill.
Henry Cavill might be going to Marvel, but he is deeply missed by Dwayne Johnson who recently joined DCEU as Black Adam. Dwayne Johnson is joining the DC Extended Universe in Black Adam. In the movie, Dwayne is playing the lead role of an anti-hero, Black Adam.
Since in the DC comics, we see Superman in Black Adam storyline, it is highly expected that the movie will have a Superman cameo. For this, Dwayne Johnson wants Henry Cavill to come back as Superman.

- Here is how Henry Cavill can take back the Superman cape— thanks to The Rock
- Black Adam vs Superman— The hierarchy is changing
According to Cosmic Book, Henry Cavill is rumoured to be coming back as Superman in the 2021 movie Black Adam. The rumours claim that Superman (which will be reprised by Henry Cavill) will come under Mister Mind’s control (teased in Shazam! post-credits scene).
Furthermore, these rumours also claim that Dwayne Johnson wants to see Henry Cavill as Superman. In fact, we might also see him in Black Adam 2. But how does Dwanye Johnson’s ‘want’ change Henry Cavill’s future in the DC Extended Universe? Here’s how—
Dwayne Johnson is working overtime to bring back Henry Cavill as Superman
Henry Cavill’s manager is Dany Garcia who is Dwayne Johnson’s ex-wife and business partner. Not only this, Dany is a producer of Shazam and Black Adam. So, if Dwayne Johnson and Henry Cavill would want the latter as Superman, they can get him as Superman. In fact, Cavill recently quoted that he will fight for Superman’s role and won’t give up easily. He surely has a better shot at it now that he is more famous than ever after Netflix series ‘The Witcher’.
Initially, Henry Cavill was set to cameo in ‘Shazam!’. But his manager, Dany Gracia broke down talks with Warner Brothers for a new contract for the Superman actor. We have to wait and see whether we will see him in the Black Adam movie or not.
In case he does return as Superman, Marvel’s plans on bagging Henry Cavill an MCU role will be shattered. As the clock ticks and the plot thickens, the question prevails— Who will bag Henry Cavill, WB or Disney?
The DCEU hierarchy is changing
It is being claimed that Henry Cavill shall be back as Superman— plot twist— to give power to Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam. Recently, The Rock has taken to posting photos from his extensive Black Adam workouts. As a caption to one of these images he wrote, “The hierarchy of power in the DC Universe is about to change. Training and prep for #BlackAdam has been a grind but this passion project outweighs the sacrifices. Truth, justice and the Black Adam way”
These words have made fans wonder if Black Adam will take on the mantle from Superman. Dwayne is a Superman superfan and he loves the fact that his character is the opposite of the DC superhero. According to him, Black Adam “is blessed by magic with the powers equal to SUPERMAN, but the difference is he doesn’t toe the mark or walk the line. He’s a rebellious, one of a kind superhero, who’ll always do what’s right for the people – but he does it his way.”
Fans are theorising that Dwanye Johnson’s Black Adam will overpower Henry Cavill’s Superman and take the lead in the DC Extended Universe. Do you too agree?
