Dwayne Johnson Hits Back At Reports Comparing Black Panther: Wakanda Forever’s Box Office Numbers To Black Adam; Says ‘What A Neutral Post’!
The Marvel vs DC debate is likely to end anytime soon! With back-to-back live-action releases from the entertainment studios, the clashes are quite obvious. The world recently saw the release of Dwayne Johnson starrer Black Adam, followed by Marvel’s Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. 

But, the Black Panther sequel garnered much fame in merely no time and the film has emerged massive hit at the box office. Amid all the admiration, Black Adam’s box-office numbers are being compared to Wakanda Forever and other films as well. But, it seems Dwayne Johnson has a problem with it.

The Rock recently reacted to Black Panther’s success is compared to his film Black Adam and it seems public scrutiny is the Black Adam actor’s kryptonite.  


For the unversed, Dwayne Johnson was recently seen playing the lead role in the 2022 DC superhero film Black Adam. Apart from him, there were many other stars in the film namely Aldis Hodge, Noah Centineo, Sarah Shahi, Marwan Kenzari, Quintessa Swindell and Pierce Brosnan, etc.

Coming back to Dwayne Johnson taking offence, a Hindustan Times report suggested that Dwayne Johnson could not stand the fact that his film’s success was being compared to other movies. He even took to his Twitter handle and reacted to a report by IGN which shared comparisons between the box office collections of Black Adam and Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.


The IGN tweet read, “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever has earned over $400 million at the global box office, making it the most profitable superhero film to be released this fall. Black Adam, which came out in October, has earned $353 million at the global box office.”

Johnson sarcastically called it a neutral post and called out the report and added that there was no competition between the films. 

The Rock stated, “What a neutral post. I love competing, but @IGN you guys are in the biz with us there’s no competition with the established global brand of Black Panther compared to Black Adam & JSA who a year ago no one even heard of. No need to knock us, we’re new babies and have to grow.” ALSO READ | Dwayne Johnson Says He Will NOT Return To 'Fast And Furious'; Calls Vin Diesel's Request To Rejoin Action Franchise 'Manipulative'
