DCU: Black Adam failure blamed by
The "hierarchy of power" in the DC Universe was not altered by Dwayne Johnson's Black Adam movie, which only made a pitiful $393 million during its theatrical run.
The performer has been frank and honest about what went wrong.
Johnson stated during an appearance on Kevin Hart's Hart to Heart, "I think that Black Adam got caught in a vortex of new leadership."
He is correct; Black Adam underwent a lengthy development process, and James Gunn and Peter Safran were recently named as the new directors of the DC Universe.
Johnson compared it to purchasing an NFL franchise and said, "I'm going with somebody else, regardless of how many Super Bowls you won or rings we received."
You have new hires who will make financial and creative decisions that you might not agree with philosophically.
Black Adam, in my opinion, was one of those pictures that got entangled in the web of the new leadership, he continued.
And throughout our business, not just for myself and my team, but also for everyone else, that will always be one of the biggest mysteries.
