In another mess to add to Black Adam’s damage control — what so far has included the actual box office, Henry Cavill’s bait-and-switch Superman exit, and Black Adam as quite a mess — Dwayne Johnson just tweeted his response about the Future of the Superhero at Warner Bros.

Johnson wrote that he and James Gunn are “bonded” and as a result, Black Adam will not appear in the “first chapter” of DC’s storytelling. (The DCEU has been around for a decade already, but for sure: the first chapter in its latest era.) Johnson added that “DC and Seven Bucks have agreed to further explore” how “Black Adam will appear in future chapters of the DC Multiverse can be used”.

Really, that means nothing. This means that Black Adam’s IP will not be discarded entirely, but no IP ever. It’s tucked away in a back pocket, in a safe, in a desk somewhere, and that message is absolutely the least amount of information anyone can provide when discussing a character’s future in a major franchise. Black Adam exists! Perhaps! We’ll see him again! Keep options open!

I know The Rock doesn’t care what I have to say but I just wish he would stop saying so many things. It’s exhausting to keep up with all of this. Nobody cares about Black Adam quite like Johnson, and while I understand the sunk cost fallacy that must be at play here with 15 years of work resulting in a box office profit of maybe $50 million, we have to remember the dedication of this Man’s approaching the limit of a second-rate superhero film.
