Despite Henry Cavill making a cameo, Black Adam was clearly not as successful as Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, but Dwayne Johnson is happy. The actor who was known as ‘The Rock’ before landing in the acting industry, proved to be a lucky charm so far. Despite not having an acting background, he acted in movies like Jumanji, Skyscraper, Red Notice, etc. All of these were successful, giving Johnson confidence for his future projects.

WB hoped to explore the world of Justice Society of America and the rest of its characters through the movie. A lot was counting on Black Adam. But not only is it performing averagely, but it has also been completely tossed off by Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. Johnson who is humbled by the experience has now acknowledged his defeat on social media.
