“Black Adam” is nearing its big release this month but it appears it was meant to prepare something.

And if the words of the main star, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson to be believed, “Black Adam” was meant to stage a huge battle with Superman.

Johnson gave his take on the claim and appeared pretty sure about it when he spoke to Cinema Blend, adding that it was the ultimate goal.

"Absolutely. That is the whole point of this man. Thank you for asking that," Johnson said. "I have been saying for some time, there's a new era in the DC Universe that's about to begin. And what I meant by that was introducing a brand new character. It's not a sequel, not an existing IP. It was...you know, Black Adam!"

It will be recalled that rumors of a possible Superman appearance came out in mid-2022. Hence, many were speculating that this could mean the possible appearance of Henry Cavill reprising his role as the Man of Steel.

Johnson spurred the hype even more after he saw the film.

"Just saw the movie again last night. I can't wait for you guys to see Black Adam. He is the most powerful... he is the most powerful and unstoppable force on this planet... On this planet," Johnson stated.

There is no official word if Superman will be among those appearing on “Black Adam.” Regardless, there will be superheroes appearing after learning of Teth Adam’s existence.

No less than Amanda Waller will call on the Justice Society of America to deal with the antihero.

Among those expected to appear include Cyclone (Quintessa Swindell), Atom Smasher (Noah Centineo), Hawkman (Aldis Hodge) and Doctor Fate (Pierce Brosnan).

"The JSA… we are finding ourselves in camaraderie and, to a degree, finding ourselves [as a] family," Hodge said. "With Doctor Fate [and Hawkman], that's a long, long friendship. There's a lot of love there. There's a real brotherhood there. And they're [asking] what is the right thing to do [about Black Adam]?"

“Black Adam” is scheduled to hit the big screen on Oct. 21.
