Actor Dwayne Johnson claims Warner Bros. Discovery initially was opposed to Henry Cavill reprising his Superman role in the recently released DC film Black Adam.
In a new video announcing that Black Adam has eclipsed Superman as the most popular movie on iTunes, Johnson compliments Cavill‘s comeback. He notes that in order to make Black Adam one of DC’s most formidable characters, it was necessary to bring back Superman, who is of course the most powerful force of all time in any world.
Johnson then seems to take a swipe at the DC Films executives, saying that they “inexplicably and inexcusably” did not want Cavill to make a comeback. Johnson didn’t say much more about it, but he did say that they would keep fighting for Cavill’s return and wouldn’t take “no” for an answer.
