Black Adam’s Dwayne Johnson explains why he fought so hard to bring Henry Cavill back to the DCEU as Superman

Five years since Henry Cavill’s last appearance as Superman in justice league, the hero’s future in the DC Universe was more of a giant question mark than a symbol of hope. But fortunately that changed in the meantime Black Adamend of the credit scenewhen Cavill returned to the big screen to the classic Superman theme fanfare. Seems we should thank Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson for more Man of Steel, who just spoke in more detail about his struggle to bring the character back.

The Rock thanked DC fans Black Adam‘s continued success as it has now rose to No. 1 on release home while Black Panther: Wakanda Forever dominates in the theaters, he also spoke about why bringing Henry Cavill’s Superman back into the herd was so important to him. In his words:

If we are to establish Black Adam as the most powerful, unstoppable force in the DC Universe, we must bring back the most powerful, unstoppable force of all time in any universe. And of course you know who I’m talking about. This is Superman and this is Henry Cavill. At the end of the day, the studio didn’t bring Henry Cavill back. Inexplicable and inexcusable. But we wouldn’t take no for an answer. Myself, my Seven Bucks Co-Founder and Chairwoman Dany Garcia, Hiram Garcia, our Seven Bucks President. It took years to bring Henry Cavill back and years of strategic talks. And we wouldn’t take no for an answer.
