Although they don’t seem like the kind of celebrities who would travel in the same circles aside from bumping into each other occasionally at an award show or promotional event, Dwayne Johnson And George Clooney now have two things in common.
The first – which they will no doubt remember for the rest of their respective careers – is that they were both cursed to star in a highly publicized DC flop. While Clooney has long held his status as the leader of the worst live-action Batman blockbuster there will ever be, The Rock has yet to address the failure of black adam in the smallest details.
Two-time Oscar-winning actor and filmmaker Clooney will tell anyone who listens that he’s the dumbest Dark Knight ever sucked in, but Johnson’s ambitious plans to carve out his own corner of the DCU ended up imploding. at the first hurdle, leaving him with an egg all over his face that probably hasn’t been washed off yet.
However, the latter causes the former to beat in the other trait they share; the tequila business. Taking to social media, Johnson celebrated that his Teremana brand sold a million cases in the past 12 months alone, something Clooney’s Casamigos couldn’t hold by candlelight after shipping 170,000 cases. per year before selling it.
Of course, Clooney technically holds the upper hand when Casamigos was transferred to beverage giant Diageo in 2017 for a colossal billion dollars, something Johnson no doubt hopes to replicate and perhaps even emulate in the future.
