How will 'Black Adam' star Dwayne Johnson help with 'Man of Steel 2' sequel starring Henry Cavill
It seems like Dwayne Johnson preaches what he sings. While he made the lyrics from his verse of the Techn N9ne 'Face Off' song come to reality, it helped Henry Cavill's 'Superman' in the process to revive. Johnson recently starred in the DCEU movie, 'Black Adam' which was released on Friday with a $140 million worldwide opening. However, the one who stole the thunder was the fan beloved 'Superman' as he was showcased in the post-credit scene of the movie. Recently, the 'Superman' actor confirmed his return with an Instagram post but we're sure you are wondering what role does Johnson play in the return of 'Superman'? Don't worry, we got you.
Johnson who was recently seen as 'Black Adam,' stated in October that he will serve in an advisory role for the franchise, including helping Warner Bros find the new leadership they need for DC Films to thrive; while expressing confidence in the future under the direction of David Zaslav, De Luca, and Abdy. He also mentioned in multiple interviews while promoting his film that the franchise will consider the fans' wants and needs going forward as the films are actually made for the fans at the end of the day.
The 'Superman' actor recently confirmed his return to the big screen with an Instagram post where the actor states, “I wanted to wait until the weekend was over before posting this because I wanted to give you all a chance to watch ‘Black Adam.'” Cavill continues, “But now that plenty of you have, I wanted to make it official: I am back as 'Superman.'” Cavill said his 'Black Adam' cameo and the image of him in the 'Superman' suit (which was also included in the Instagram video) taken by 'Black Adam' producer Hiram Garcia “are just a very small taste of things to come.” After teasing the fans he further went on conveying his gratitude while saying, "Thank you for your support and thank you for your patience.” Cavill ends by reassuring the fans, “I promise it will be rewarded.”
Post this, our 'Black Adam' hero, Dwayne Johnson welcomed the OG DCEU hero by saying, "We fought for years to bring you back," Johnson wrote on Twitter. "They always said no. But to [Dany and Hiram Garcia] & myself 'no' was not an option. We can't build out our DCEU without the world's greatest superhero. And fans will always come first. Welcome home. I’ll see you down the road," as he signed off with his DCEU screen name, 'BlackAdam.'

We suppose this is just the beginning of a new era for DCEU and Warner Bro films. However, Cavill first originated his 'Superman' nearly 10 years ago in 2013’s 'Man of Steel.' He has played the Son of Krypton just a handful of times since then: in 2016’s 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,' 2017’s 'Justice League,' 2021’s 'Zack Snyder’s Justice League' and a brief post-credits cameo in 'Black Adam.' (Superman as a character showed up at the end of 2019’s 'Shazam!' but Cavill did not play the role, which was shot from the neck down.)
