Dwayne Johnson has sat down with Kevin Hart for a new episode of Hart to Heart and discusses why Black Adam won’t be receiving a sequel.
Johnson appeared on Hart’s talk show and amongst the many topics they covered, they spent a few moments discussing the fate of the Black Adam movie.
Please note the video includes some Not Safe For Work language.
Despite its strong opening weekend, Johnson announced some time later that his journey with the character was coming to an end.
My passionate friends,
I wanted to give you a long-awaited Black Adam update regarding the character’s future in the new DC Universe.
James Gunn and I connected, and Black Adam will not be in their first chapter of storytelling. However, DC and Seven Bucks have agreed to continue exploring the most valuable ways Black Adam can be utilized in future DC multiverse chapters.
James and I have known each other for years and have always rooted for each other to succeed. It’s no different now, and I will always root for DC (and Marvel) to win and WIN BIG. You guys know me, and I have very thick skin–and you can always count on me to be direct with my words.
These decisions made by James and DC leadership represent their vision of the DCU through their creative lens.
After 15 years of relentless hard work to finally make Black Adam, I’m very proud of the film we delivered for fans worldwide. I will always look back on the fan reaction to Black Adam with tremendous gratitude, humility, and love.
We did great.
To my very passionate and vocal Black Adam/Super Hero genre fans–I love you, THANK YOU, and I will ALWAYS LISTEN TO YOU and do my best to deliver and entertain you.
What a helluva month–now we all need some Teremana! (crying laughing emoji, shot emoji)
Have a productive week and HAPPY HOLIDAYS to you and your families!
At this point, it is unknown if there any plans for Black Adam to play a role in the upcoming DC Universe.
