Recently, on the Comicbook Nation podcast, the crew discussed the recent events in the DCEU. As per the reports, Walter Hamada will leave the DC franchise after the release of ‘Black Adam’, a news that came after Dwayne Johnson becomes the advisor for the DCEU films.

The reason he is staying until ‘Black Adam’ is to have a small part of whatever bonuses he is due.

Some DC fans think the popularity of ‘Black Adam’ overpowered ‘Batgirl’. Moreover, some fans also believe that ‘DJ’ is indirectly responsible for Walter Hamada’s exit from the DCEU.

They shared their reactions on Twitter after the news about Hamada’s exit broke out. A few fans were happy with the outcome as it can restore the Synderverse, which the DC fandom is waiting for after ‘The Synder Cut’ was released.

A fan was worried about the future of DC.

Further, few fans had a lot to say about Hamada and Johnson.


Additionally, a fan was interested in seeing the kind of projects DC comes up with after Dwayne Johnson’s involvement.

Another fan wanted Henry Cavill back as Superman.

Further, even though Johnson’s comments hurt the DC fans, many are looking forward to watching his movie. Many believe ‘Black Adam’ will bring a new era for DCEU.

Dwayne Johnson hints at Henry Cavill’s return as Superman

A few weeks ago at San Diego Comic-Con, a fan asked Dwayne Johnson a question about who is more powerful: Black Adam or Superman?

He said, “Pound for pound, they are pretty close. I guess it probably all depends on who is playing Superman. I will just say that. I’ll leave it at that and we’ll just go that way.”
