Dwayne Johnson is determined to deliver an unrivalled DCEU showdown in the future, as a Black Adam v Superman movie is on the cards amid rumors of Henry Cavill’s return.

An age old debate between comic book fans is just who can beat Superman. The Man of Steel may be weakened by different variants of Kryptonite, but that aside, Kal-El is a formidable force of nature.

Dwayne Johnson is a firm believer that Superman is the most “unstoppable force in the universe” and has bold plans to re-introduce Henry Cavill’s iteration of the character into the DCEU. Cavill’s return is all but officially confirmed, with Johnson essentially dropping any shroud of secrecy.

The former WWE superstar is keen to ensure that the “fans” are at the center of the DCEU: “What I really meant by, ‘This is a new era in the DC Universe,’ is listening to the fans. And doing our best to give the fans what they want.”
