The showman Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson played the wiry and strong anti-hero Shazam’s adversary in the newest DC movie, Black Adam. He is delighted to have brought Henry Cavill’s Superman back into style, despite the coronavirus causing several production issues, as mentioned in recent weeks. However, the box office collection for Black Adam is not entirely favorable for DC; in short, the movie is a box office flop, which is why Black Adam will Unlikely get a Sequel.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Black Adam box office collection came to roughly $385 million on a budget of $190 to 230 million, insufficient to cover further costs. The failure in the box office collection would have prompted DC Studios to consider canceling the sequel.
Another equally significant factor is that the new DC direction, led by James Gunn and Peter Safran, is reportedly aiming for a complete universe reboot. With characters like Wonder Woman, Aquaman, and Superman in grave danger.
The Rock has worked so hard to get Cavill back into the Warner Bros plan, with the actor who may not have a chance; for this reason, Black Adam might also be out of the picture. In these situations, only time can predict what will occur.
