WATCH: Did Dwayne Johnson just tease Superman’s return in Black Adam?

October 7th, 2022 by Marc Comments

We’re a mere two weeks out from Black Adam and star Dwayne ‘the Rock’ Johnson has taken to Twitter to seemingly tease something big.

So, we’re hearing a lot rumours that, thanks to Johnson, DC/Warners have worked out the wrinkles with Henry Cavill and he’s back as Superman (for future DCEU projects… and it’s all starting with Black Adam. Along with, reports say, John Williams’ iconic theme.

Now, we have nothing concrete but this tweet definitely seems to hint that these rumours may be true.

Talking to the camera, Johnson says he’s seen the finished movie again and that he cannot wait for us all to see it before adding that Adam is “the most powerful and unstoppable force… on this planet”.

He stopped himself mid-sentence after saying ‘most powerful’ and adds “there’s a third act” all this before he looks at the camera and winks.

If you watch the clip, it’s pretty clear there’s more to what he’s saying and it’s hard to imagine that it’s NOT what all the fans want… the return of Cavill’s Kal-El, Superman.

Check out the clip and let us know what you all think… but we’re trying not to be excited as heck for the return of Supes… but we cannot help it.

We’ll be there on opening night to see what the truth of the matter is. will you?

UPDATE: A new report at The Wrap says that Cavill was also back filming scenes for The Flash and that yes, Johnson was responsible for getting Cavill back: “The reason why Henry Cavill has returned as Superman in Black Adam is because [Johnson] 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.”

Bring on the memes of Michael Scott shouting ‘oh, my God, it’s happening!’.

In ancient Kahndaq, Teth Adam was bestowed the almighty powers of the gods. After using these powers for vengeance, he was imprisoned, becoming Black Adam. Nearly 5,000 years have passed and Black Adam has gone from man, to myth, to legend. Now released, his unique form of justice, born out of rage, is challenged by modern day heroes who form the Justice Society: Hawkman, Dr. Fate, Atom Smasher and Cyclone.

Johnson stars alongside Aldis Hodge (“City on a Hill,” “One Night in Miami”) as Hawkman, Noah Centineo (“To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before”) as Atom Smasher, Sarah Shahi (“Sex/Life,” “Rush Hour 3”), Marwan Kenzari (“Murder on the Orient Express,” “The Mummy”), Quintessa Swindell (“Voyagers,” “Trinkets”) as Cyclone, Mo Amer (“Mo,” “Ramy”), Bodhi Sabongui (“A Million Little Things”), and Pierce Brosnan (the “Mamma Mia!” and James Bond franchises) as Dr. Fate.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
