Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has officially denied a recent report that claimed he pitched a multi-year plan for his Black Adam character to take on Superman to Warner Bros. CEO David Zaslav.
The report, which was published by The Hollywood Reporter, stated that Johnson had a “secret meeting” with Zaslav to discuss the possibility of a Black Adam/Superman film series.
However, in a statement made on his Instagram account, Johnson denied the report, saying, “That is simply not true. I have not had any meetings with Warner Bros. or anyone else about a Black Adam/Superman project. There’s been a lot of talk and speculation about Black Adam, but right now, my focus is on other projects.”
It looks like Johnson has moved on from the Black Adam character after the movie failed to perform well at the box office. Despite high expectations and a strong marketing campaign, the Black Adam movie received mixed reviews and did not live up to its financial projections.
Johnson has been a box office draw for many years, but the failure of Black Adam may have made him rethink his involvement in comic book adaptations. He has not yet commented on whether he will reprise his role as Black Adam in any future films, but it seems likely that he will focus on other projects in the future.
