The superhero genre is one of the most popular storytelling formats in the world. And that it attracts a mass audience. Therefore, while we are talking about the superhero genre, we must not forget the DCEU. Over the years, the expanded DC universe has given viewers a lot of movies and TV series about superheroes. And a number of famous celebrities, including Henry Cavill, have starred in various films for the franchise. Recently, even Dwayne Johnson debuted as a superhero with Black Adam.
“Black Adam” was one of DC’s most anticipated projects this year. However, while people were looking forward to the debut of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson as a superhero, they were more excited to see Henry Cavill back in the role of Superman. After so many years, Cavill returned as Superman in Black Adam. Superman is one of the most popular faces in the DCEU, and recently even Johnson told why the studio needs Cavill to move forward.
