After much waiting and fan demand, Zack Snyder’s Justice League has recently been released. Well, as expected, the fans loved it. Despite the success of this movie, it became clear that Warner Bros. wanted to kill the SnyderVerse. They want to continue with their plans to restart the DCEU. But it looks like Dwayne Johnson isn’t ready to go along with the move and is fighting to bring Snyder’s league back, even if it means he has to make his own version of Man Of Steel 2.
Yes, you heard right. The Black Adam Star wants to produce the sequel to the much-loved film. Read on to find out more.
According to Mikey Sutton of Geekosity, The Rock, Dwayne Johnson wants to produce Man Of Steel 2, which would see Henry Cavill return as the last son of Krypton. The Black Adam star is already known to be a huge DC fan of Snyder and his cast.
Dwayne Johnson is also known to be good friends with Henry Cavill and has campaigned to fight his Supes in the DCEU for years. Now, producing the sequel means having a good chance to fight, so we’re sure he won’t sit idly by and let that opportunity slip through his fingers.
Johnson is reported to be pushing to get involved in the long-stuck Man of Steel sequel as a co-producer or executive producer. He wants the movie to tie into his burgeoning Black Adam franchise as well, which could lead to BA 2. As it seems, that wouldn’t be another HBO Max exclusive, as The Rock apparently wants a theatrical release.
Well, we don’t know how much of that is possible because it’s the exact opposite of what Warner Bros. foresees. But, it is said that Dwayne Johnson could win here because AT&T is backing him. They’re the ones who made the Snyder Cut in the first place, and they’re more confident in The Rock’s money-making abilities than they are in studio executives.
