It’s the biggest irony that, after years of teasing that Black Adam would change the hierarchy of power in the DC universe, Dwayne Johnson‘s movie was actually overshadowed by a genuine changing of the hierarchy of power, as James Gunn and Peter Safran took command of the newly refurbished DC Studios. After weeks of silence, The Rock recently finally addressed his status in the DCU, confirming that he won’t be returning as Teth-Adam anytime soon.
What that means is that The Rock is now primed to hop over to DC’s greatest rivals instead and join the MCU. After all, we know Johnson is a big fan of Marvel Studios himself and has had discussions with Kevin Feige in the past. There are certainly a bunch of highly powered characters that would fit Johnson’s tastes. Two of the most OP heroes in Marvel comics canon, in fact, could be headed to the screen soon in the form of Superman analogues Sentry and Hyperion.
