Adding context from his wrestling days, Johnson said: “From back in the day when I was wrestling in flea markets for $40 bucks a match, all the way to now, I’ve learned to always listen to the audience.”

The Jumanji star added: “always listen to the audience because they will always lead you to where you need to go.”

Cavill’s appearance as Superman has been rumored for some time, going all the way back to 2016 before Black Adam began production.
