BLACK ADAM Star Dwayne Johnson Explains How His Anti-Hero Could KILL The DCEU's Superman

The hierarchy in the DC Extended Universe is about to change, and Black Adam star Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson has some fighting words for what would happen if his anti-hero were to cross paths with Superman.

We didn't get a trailer for Black Adam at DC FanDome, but a featurette and clip was more than enough to get us excited. In the latter, we saw Dwayne Johnson's anti-hero return to Earth and make short work of some attacking goons. Using his magical abilities, he turned one of them into dust, and it's clear that this guy is going to be a force to be reckoned with in the DCEU.

Since the sneak peek dropped, Johnson has been hyping Black Adam on social media, and his latest comments have got fans talking following some bold claims made by the actor. 

"Remember, Superman’s greatest weakness isn't Kryptonite, it’s magic. Black Adam’s greatest superpower is magic," he reminded fans. "They both fly at light speed. They both are unstoppable forces. But only one will kill the other. And we know who that is."

That's fighting talk, alright. Honestly, if Black Adam and Superman were to clash on the big screen, we'd definitely put our money on the ruthless anti-hero seeing as he's willing to kill and is powered by magic. It's unknown whether we'll ever see those two meet in live-action, especially when Henry Cavill's future as the Man of Steel remains up in the air for the time being. 

Black Adam vs. Superman isn't guaranteed, then, but Black Adam vs. Shazam has to be on the cards. 

Black Adam is set to be released in theaters on July 29, 2022.
