Published 06/17/2022, 8:00 AM EDT

When the Will Smith Oscar incident took place, Chris Rock had become a vast subject. Since then, Rock has consistently outsold the shows and has been a point of interest. Additionally, Chris Rock has been contacted for the 74th Primetime Emmy Awards, which has put him back in the spotlight once again. According to reports, Dwayne Johnson is also in discussions to host.

According to Deadline, the Primetime Emmys had approached ‘The Great One’ and Chris Rock to host the show. However, Rock has turned down the offer. Johnson, on the other hand, is unlikely to accept the offer as he’ll be preoccupied with the promotion of his upcoming picture, Black Adam.

Reginald Hudlin and the Done+Dusted production company will produce this year’s Primetime Emmys, which will be aired on NBC. The hosting job is anticipated to be filled by NBC and Peacock talent. Although, according to reports, they might cast a broad net, including those not linked with NBC.

Black Adam, starring Dwayne Johnson, will hit theaters in October

‘The People’s Champ’ has starred in many action-packed films, and he is now regarded as one of the world’s top action heroes. The trailer was released on June 8th and has already received 20 million views, surpassing 7.4 million views in the first 24 hours. There are some extremely great action sequences and some comic parts in the trailer.

The movie’s official release date is October 21, 2022, and it’s predicted to be a major hit after a strong reception from fans. The Rock was cast in this role in 2014. Also, it’s reasonable to expect that Johnson’s film featuring Black Adam will be a major hit.

Moreover, DJ plays a powerful anti-hero in this movie. Thus, it will be exciting to see what Johnson has in store with his debut comic-verse film.
