Dwayne Johnson finally comments on Henry Cavill’s exit as Superman from the DC movie franchise, following the actor’s return for the Black Adam post-credits scene teasing a superhero face-off. Cavill reprised the role of Clark Kent aka Superman in Black Adam for the first time since 2017’s Justice League, though he also appeared in Zack Snyder’s Justice League that released in 2021. However, less than three months after Black Adam hit theaters and Cavill confirmed his return as Superman, the actor announced his exit from the franchise.
On the Oscars red carpet, Johnson was asked about Cavill’s Superman exit. The Black Adam star hadn’t previously commented on Cavill’s departure, and in an interview with Variety, Johnson broke his silence on Superman being racast in the upcoming DC Universe.
Johnson likened the situation with Cavill to a football team that is taken over by new management who decides to replace the coach and the quarterback.
