It seems Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson isn’t particularly interested in the Black Adam franchise anymore and he wants to put it behind him and move ahead with the major shakeup that took place at DC Studios. It has even given rise to reports citing that the former wrestler has unfollowed the Instagram accounts of the Black Adam and Warner Bros discovery.
He even slammed these reports saying, “100% not true Never followed either account on IG.”
The latest update comes after the release of Black Adam which was meant to spawn spinoffs, sequels, and more of Henry Cavill's Superman, For the same, Peter Safran and James Gunn were hired to steer the ship for all DC projects for Warner Bros Discovery.
100% not true— Dwayne Johnson (@TheRock) December 17, 2022
Never followed either account on IG.
As the new bosses map out the next decade of the DCU, some planned projects are getting tossed, such as Patty Jenkins' Wonder Woman 3.
In a rather shocking turn of events, Cavil also announced his disinterest in his role as Superman despite his Black Adam return. The glimpse of the Kryptonian let credence to the rumours that Black Adam 2 wouldn't be moving forward under the Safran/Gunn regime.
As per the reports, fans who took a closer look at the Instagram account noticed that following Cavill's announcement, The Rock unfollowed the official pages for Black Adam and Warner Bros. Discovery. This could be a subtle sign that he's washing his hands of Black Adam if he now knows for sure that he's not coming back for a sequel.
