Amidst the ongoing reshuffle at DC Studios, one of the rumors circulating about Warner Bros. Discovery is that Dwayne Johnson, who stars in the recently released film Black Adamhas unfollowed Warner Bros. and Black Adam social media accounts. However, according to the star, that is not the case.
In a tweet sent out late on Friday, Johnson responded to the rumours. Johnson called the story “100% untrue”, and said he had never followed any accounts on Instagram at all. In another response after the writer who shared the rumors apologized, Johnson said there were no hurt feelings and that today’s social media is “very toxic time and culture.”
Stories around Johnson and his time Black Adam keeps turning as fans wonder what the future holds for the franchise. After a somewhat underwhelming showing at the box office, reports started surfacing that Johnson had been denied the chance to make a cameo in the upcoming film. Shazam! Wrath of the Gods.
Other reports later emerged indicating that Warner Bros. believed that Johnson and his team had provided the studio with misleading reports about whether or not the film was a success.
Fans continue to wonder what the future holds for DC Studios as a whole. Recently, James Gunn announced that he would be writing his own Superman film, and that Henry Cavill would no longer be playing the character. Gunn has yet to discuss what the future of the project looks like Black Adam or other established DCU franchises, so fans will have to wait for more information.
