Seven Bucks Productions president of production Hiram Garcia says a fight between Johnson’s Black Adam and Cavill’s Superman would be incredible.

Hiram Garcia, the president of production at Seven Bucks, thinks a battle between Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam and Henry Cavill’s Superman would be epic. Johnson has been associated with the character of Tenth Adam/Black Adam since 2007, even before the DC Extended Universe was born with Man of Steel (2013). Since then, a lot has transpired, including Warner Bros./DC abandoning the SnyderVerse after “Josstice League,” Snyder’s Justice League exposing the faults in that choice, and Cavill’s now unclear future as Kal-El.

Black Adam was intended to make his debut in 2019’s Shazam! as an ancient Egyptian given abilities by the magician Shazam. The company has subsequently decided that Johnson should star in his own picture presenting the anti-hero. Johnson been hyping Black Adam’s capacity to alter the DC Universe’s power hierarchy in the lead up to and during production, which recently ended. “Black Adam possesses all of Superman’s powers, but he’s also endowed with magic,” he explained. Also, in the realm of superheroes, they don’t murder evil guys because of a code of ethics, but Black Adam does.” According to reports, the actor wants to play a morally ambiguous figure in the SnyderVerse, where he can go toe-to-toe with Cavill’s Superman.

Hiram Garcia, the president of production at Johnson’s business Seven Bucks, spoke with Collider about director Jaume Collect-upcoming Serra’s Black Adam and the portrayal of Johnson’s cruel anti-hero. The film will highlight Black Adam’s abilities in a level that has never been seen before in the DCEU, presenting an unmistakable new power dynamic. Despite the film’s PG-13 certification, Garcia claims Black Adam will have a distinct “edge” and will not be limited in its number of kills. Naturally, Garcia was questioned if this Clark Kent-like figure would ever face off against Cavill onscreen. Here’s what he had to say:

“Hard to say, but I know that would be incredible if it ever did happen,” said Garcia. “We certainly know the fans want it! All I can say is that we’re always listening to the fans and doing what we can!”

Garcia stated that Black Adam takes place in the same universe as Shazam! in terms of the broader cosmos. However, he refused to say how or if it will tie in with forthcoming DC films such as The Flash, The Batman, or Aquaman 2. Characters from the SnyderVerse like as Batman, Aquaman, Flash, and Wonder Woman will continue to feature in future films, but it’s uncertain if their character development will follow their SnyderVerse path. Despite the obvious intertwining of the Shazam! series and Black Adam—which will see the Justice Society of America arrive—WB seems less interested (or maybe puzzled) with the entire cinematic universe’s mechanics.

Cavill’s future as Superman is still up in the air. We last saw him in the cape in Zack Snyder’s R-rated Justice League, a film that showcased the severity of his abilities like never before. While other famous superheroes from the film will live on, a sequel to Man of Steel has yet to be announced, despite studios’ requests. Instead, a J.J. Abrams-directed remake, a Micheal B. Jordan-directed HBO Max series, and the inclusion of Supergirl in The Flash all looked to be aimed at erasing Cavill’s Superman. Any of these new Kryptonians may square off against Johnson’s titular hero in Black Adam, filling the vacuum left by Cavill. Still,it won’t be the same as watching The Rock battle the original.
