Dwayne Johnson Wants To Take Over DCEU; Black Adam Vs Justice League vs Suicide Squad

Another one of my scoops from Comic-Con is confirmed which deals with Dwayne Johnson wanting to take over the DCEU.

DC insiders told me about a Stan Lee take on the DC Comics thing happening, which was recently announced by DC Comics.

As I said, my buddies chatted with Batman producer Michael Uslan as we walked home from dinner.

Regarding Dwayne Johnson, I was told that Dwayne Johnson wants to take over the DC films universe but that depends on how well Black Adam performs with fans and at the box office.

I was also told Henry Cavill can return as Superman if he wants to, which seems to be the case.

YouTuber Grace Randolph backs up my claims as she also thinks Dwayne Johnson and his production team want to take over the DCEU.

Dwayne Johnson pitched Black Adam vs Justice League vs Suicide Squad

In a video Randolph posted last week Friday, Randolph reveals that Dwayne Johnson has pitched a Black Adam vs. Justice League vs. Suicide Squad movie.

Randolph also suggests that Dwayne Johnson could actually become the “Kevin Feige” of the DCEU but not exactly like Feige (and worth a mention is that Dan Lin is not taking over the DCEU).

As she notes, Dwayne Johnson comes from a background involving wrestling, so The Rock really knows spectacle and knows what the fans want.

The Black Adam vs. Justice League vs. Suicide Squad movie could be something like the Suicide Squad trying to kill the Justice League where Black Adam is involved, with the Justice League and Suicide Squad teaming to take down Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam on the level of an Avengers: Endgame movie.

The pitch also follows Black Adam taking on the JSA but on a much grander scale involving all the DCEU characters.

Interestingly enough, the Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League video game has been delayed (which may or may not be related).

Dwayne Johnson bringing the DCEU together

It’s known Viola Davis is in Black Adam as Amanda Waller, that Ben Affleck is appearing in both The Flash and now Aquaman 2, it’s rumored Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman appears in Shazam! 2 and Gadot is confirmed for The Flash, and Henry Cavill is rumored for Black Adam and now The Flash.

Update: Thank Dwayne Johnson for Henry Cavill returning as Superman in The Flash.

Putting everything together, it seems as if Dwayne Johnson is bridging the DCEU to become more cohesive, which again, according to Randolph, may culminate in a Black Adam vs Justice League vs Suicide Squad movie.

Randolph also adds that Dwayne Johnson isn’t pitching Man of Steel 2 or Justice League 2 but we see Johnson wants himself at the center of the DCEU as he wants to take things over at DC along with his Seven Bucks production company which includes his former wife and producer business partner who manages Cavill, Dany Garcia.

It should also be said it seems as if the DC Trinity is back as Henry Cavill is said to be back as Superman, Ben Affleck is getting more screen time as Batman, and so is Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman.

Randolph previously said that a DC female trinity was being launched consisting of Gadot along with Sasha Calle as Supergirl and Leslie Grace as Batgirl. Well, we know that isn’t happening and we could have Johnson to thank for it.

Dwayne Johnson in charge of DC may explain things

If this all happens to be a go, it would take place after The Flash movie, and it explains the recent changes involving Ben Affleck back as Batman, the Sasha Calle Supergirl movie not happening, and while not touched upon, maybe even why Batgirl has been canceled which seems to involve the downgrade of Michael Keaton as Batman in favor of Affleck back as Batman.

It may also explain why all the J.J. Abrams projects are getting canceled and maybe even that rumor about the Robert Pattinson Batman eventually being phased out.

Johnson would also need to straighten out Ezra Miller and Ray Fisher, which I think he is more than capable of doing otherwise I am guessing those characters would be recast.

We can also add that it means we’ll see John Cena go one on one with the great one on the big screen.

Who can see that happening?

And guess what the same DC insiders also told me? Yep. That Zack Snyder may not be done just yet.

What’s been The Rock’s catchphrase from day one?

“The hierarchy of power in the DC Universe is about to change.”

And what is he now stating?

“The new era of the DC Universe begins.”

Black Adam opens on Oct. 21.
