But on the other side of things, The Rock is being heralded as the savior that DC fans all around needed. So you might be wondering what caused Johnson to become such a divided figure in the DC fanbase.

6 years is not bad for a tattoo, but in what context? Someone making their return after 6 years of their last movie with DC.

People don’t like it at all when people talk spoilers, but this is new for the internet when the actor intentionally talks about it in the interviews before the movie’s release.

While it is for many things, Johnson talking about a post-credit scene on his world tour for the movie is funnier than anything on the internet right now.

The haters of the movie are loving to watch Johnson make poor decisions in interviews. But only time will tell how much of an impact this promotion has on Black Adam’s box office collection.

While Kevin Feige has been killing it with Marvel lately, with She-Hulk and Werewolf in the Night, Johnson contending for superhero movie leading man could be a possible future for DC moving forward.
