While fans may be worried about DC films’ future, Dwayne Johnson met with the company to inspire confidence. Johnson, who will be playing the villain Black Adam in the upcoming Shazam movie, says he’s fired up and inspired after the meeting.
“Had a very cool and strategic meeting with the heads of DC Comics about their entire universe. As a hard core DC fan, to get a real sense of the tonal shifts and developments coming in these future movies has me fired up. Something we, as DC fans have all been waiting for. Hope, optimism & FUN. I’m excited about our future together and you should be to.
Even when talking about the the most ruthless villain/anti-hero of all time finally coming to life. Prepare yourselves DC Universe.”
So whether or not you’ve loved the current DCEU’s offerings, at least if The Rock can be trusted, the future is bright. Hopefully the films can begin to receive both great reception from fans and critics alike; as well as differ their films tonally so they don’t all feel the same. Originality may be key to the continued success of the superhero genre, something DC can certainly help to foster.
