Apart from Jungle Cruise, another movie of his which is already making headlines is Black Adam. He plays the role of an anti-hero, which again aligns with his character at WWE. This will be the first movie where he is playing the role of a superhero, but has already signed with DC to play the voice of Superman’s dog, Krypto, in DC’s League of Pets.

Unfortunately, this is still a draft plan and WWE hasn’t set anything in stone. If this works, Survivor Series 2021 could potentially have John Cena, The Rock, and Roman Reigns. It’s already confirmed that Cena will continue to work with WWE after SummerSlam 2021.

However, a while back Roman Reigns had claimed that the perfect event to bring back The Rock is WrestleMania, especially when the PPV goes Hollywood. This would align perfectly with his huge success as a wrestler and an actor.
