Show us more, Rock! Despite its time in development hell, Black Adam has never felt more real. And with Dwayne Johnson already getting familiar with the movie's script, he's taking on a new mantra to become the character.

Dwayne Johnson's signature DC character is expected to shake things up when he arrives in the DCEU, although The Rock was sure to talk some smack about the MCU heroes as well. Black Adam will proceed the villain finally crossing over to battle with Shazam in his threequel. After that, Johnson's future with DC is seemingly unlimited.

While the DCEU had a rocky start, Warner Bros. has definitely hit its stride with recent releases. Following Justice League's disappointing box office performance, plans for crossover events came to a screeching halt. But now that the Snyder Cut has been released, perhaps the studio will move forward with another ensemble movie. Only time will tell, but The Flash's inclusion of Batman is definitely an exciting step forward.

Aside from seeing Black Adam and Shazam clash on the big screen, fans are holding out hope that Dwayne Johnson's villain might clash with Superman. Their powers are a great match for an epic throwdown, Henry Cavill's character could truly not hold back. Unfortunately, Cavill's future in the DCEU is currently unclear.

The next installment in the DCEU is The Suicide Squad on August 6th. In the meantime, check out our 2021 release list to plan your next movie experience.
