With all the hype on “Black Adam” in the air, most are eager to see someone like the “Man of Steel” collide. Unfortunately, nothing close to that is happening and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson shed more light on why this will be so.

"We have a lot more long-term storytelling to do before that historic DCEU showdown and more new characters to establish [before the Black Adam/Superman fight]," Johnson said via Twitter.

Further, The Rock begs to ask if the showdown is the way to go. The former WWE star has no clue and will likely leave that to the storytellers.

"Hopefully, they're going to clash at some point, but it's not just about a 'one fight' situation," he said. "That was never our dream. That does not reward the fans. Fans want to feel a journey between these guys knowing that these guys exist in the same universe."

But then again, Johnson may have a point that they first need to come up and build a storyline between his character “Black Adam” and Superman.

Apparently, the rumors of a possible showdown between the Man of Steel and Teth-Adam gained even more ground after the announcement that Henry Cavill would be returning for a Man of Steel sequel.

There were claims that Superman could make a cameo on “Black Adam” although that never happened. One reason is that Cavill came into the picture a bit too late.

Similar to what happened in “Shazam” in 2019, a body double stood in for the British actor, a measure to see how it would impact the viewers – especially once they catch a glimpse of it.

"Watching an actor come out of a full silhouette into that [scene] was actually [a] goosebumps [moment]," cinematographer Lawrence Sher said. "'Wow, this is 100 percent going to work. Now they need to figure out if they can get the guy with the head to be there.'"
