Black Adam is set to #RestoreTheSnyderVerse. Despite attempts to kill it, the original DCEU continuity lives on with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.
Warner Bros.’ private tug-of-war about the Snyderverse continues to unfold.
On March 22, Warner Bros. chairman and CEO Ann Sarnoff announced that the Snyderverse ended with Zack Snyder’s Justice League.
Since then, I have reported that HBO Max will continue the Snyderverse; however, theatrically, Warner Bros. intends for The Flash film to be the final nail in the coffin.
According to insiders, The Rock is ignoring all of Warner Bros.’ plans to end the Snyderverse.
A source said that:
“The Rock is making Black Adam the way he always envisioned, and nobody will stand in his way.”
I have leaked that The Rock wants to produce Man of Steel 2 with Henry Cavill returning as Superman.
His Black Adam franchise is central in bringing back the Snyderverse; apparently, that will begin with the first movie.
The Rock’s Black Adam Could #RestoreTheSnyderverse
Insiders added Black Adam will reference events and characters in the Snyderverse, even Darkseid.
A source at Warner Bros. revealed that:
The Rock wants Black Adam to be the baddest dude in the DCEU, and that world includes Cavill’s Superman, Ben Affleck’s Batman, and even Darkseid. What DC Films has planned thus far is weak in comparison. What’s Black Adam supposed to say? That he can kick Hourman’s ass? Mera can probably beat up Hourman.
The Anti-Hero film has begun filming for a July 29, 2022 theatrical release.
As successful as Zack Snyder’s Justice League was on HBO Max, the future of the Snyderverse in the cinemas is riding on Black Adam.
In other words, if the film cranks up cash registers for over a billion at the box office, the Snyderverse will come roaring back.
Insiders see a scenario in which the Snyderverse could exist simultaneously with J.J. Abrams’ theatrical DC projects.
Of course, that would mean two different Supermans in the cinema.
However, DC Films asked for a multiverse and they need to own their headache.
On some level, it’s like an insurance policy.
If the general public doesn’t like the taste of Hamada Burgers, the Snyderverse still exists as an alternative.
