Hollywood star Dwayne Johnson, basking in the success of his new release "Black Adam", has opened up that Warner Bros, the studios following the superhero flick, to begin with, did not want Henry Cavill to back as Superman. Cavill made a gem as Superman in 'Black Adam', something Johnson "fought hard" for even as Warner Bros. was not initially keen on bringing back the actor.

The Review 

According to a USA-based entertainment news portal, Deadline, Johnson took to his Twitter handle. He said he wanted to establish Black Adam "as the most powerful, unstoppable force in the DC universe." The DC star explained that they must bring back the most powerful, indomitable force of all time in any universe to achieve this. And you guys know who he was talking about? Of course, that is Superman. And that's Henry Cavill."

Inexplicably And Inexcusably

He then opened up that the studio "inexplicably and inexcusably" did not want to bring back Cavill, but he was not going to take no for a reaction, and his team got to work, reported Deadline. "This has been years in the making regarding bringing Henry Cavill return and years of strategic conversations, and we were not going to take no for an answer. 

Johnson's Answer 

There was no way; there was no real logical way that you could attempt to build out the DC Universe with the most dynamic force and the most significant superhero of all time sitting on the sidelines. It's unfeasible to do," Johnson added.

The former pro wrestler turned actor also said, "So that's why they fought hard to escort Superman back, Henry Cavill, and there was no other Superman, by the way, to lead back Henry Cavill is our gen Superman and in his opinion, the greatest Superman. And he means that attentively to the other actors, especially Christopher Reeve," as per Deadline. While following his cameo in DC's 'Black Adam', back in October, it was said by Cavil in a viral social media post that he is back as Superman in a new Warner Bros.-DC movie. (ANI)
