Black Adam : The Rock still doesn't understand why there will be no Black Adam 2

The Rock still doesn't understand why there will be no Black Adam 2

Johnson stressed that his “Black Adam” franchise got “caught in the web of new leadership,” but he still doesn’t completely understand why the character got dropped given what he views as the film’s multiple success points.

“That will always be one of the biggest mysteries,” Johnson said. “You have the biggest opening of your career. Sure, no China, which could’ve been maybe 100 or 200 million more dollars. You have a superhero and you want to grow out the franchise. You bring back Superman and Henry Cavill, which the world went crazy. And we created a diverse superhero portfolio, where we have just men and women of color in ‘Black Adam.'”

“Black Adam” opened to a sizable $67 million at the box office, a high point for Johnson’s career and far bigger than the $55 million earned by “The Flash” this year. However, the film’s box office did not leg out, and it failed to cross the $400 million mark at the worldwide box office.

It happened too late, audiences didn't care, it lost over 100 million dollars.

Thing is Black Adam is not a well known comic book character or a house hold name, just wasn't a character to have a solo movie or have a shared universe centred around him.

They thought having him played by the Rock would bring Black Adam into the limelight like Cavil did with Superman. Superman too was a largely unheard of comic book character until Cavil made him popular.

Bullshit, everyone knows who Superman is long before Cavill came along.

His massive ego won't let him accept that he's an old has-been.

Too bad, it was one of the better dc movies.

The Lion does not give a fuck. Bring. More. Sheep.

Might have something to do with the fact The Rock has no acting talent whatsoever.
