Last year, Dwayne Johnson entered the DC Universe as Black Adam. This movie was the 11th film in the DC Universe and the debut one of DJ. Although the movie didn’t do exceptionally well at the box office, it was a massive hit among some cult comic book fans and got a 6.5 rating on IMDB. But even after this, it wasn’t good enough for The Rock to return as Black Adam.

Earlier this year, Johnson gave the long-awaited update to his fans regarding the future of Black Adam’s character, saying that it won’t be part of DC’s first chapter.  He also gave hope to fans by stating that DC and Seven Bucks will continue to explore the most valuable ways to utilize Black Adam in future DC multiverse chapters.

The main reason why fans are more attracted to this upcoming Christmas film is that both Johnson and Evans play entirely different roles in their movies. Where The Rock usually prefers the action comedy genre, Evans sticks to serious roles. Now that both stars are sharing the screen in a holiday movie, it would be interesting to see how good their on-screen chemistry turns out to be.
