Is this a bird? Is it a plane? Or is he just a Jedi Knight disguised as Black Adam? Reality has found its own taste of multiverse mayhem, as The Rock sends his fans scurrying all over the place with a number of clues he’s been dropping lately. The former and former DCU actor made headlines recently and sent the world dragging himself into theaters to catch a glimpse of Henry Cavill as if he was the last drop of oxygen on the planet.
However, that hope faded just as quickly as the James Gunn drama began to take over all that was sweet and warm in the budding fan’s heart. Now, having served Gunn et al. tu— a go-to moment for The Rock and his sidekick, Superman, the actor has moved away in search of greener pastures elsewhere. And it looks like he might find his new calling in a galaxy far, far away.
The Rock began seeking safe haven in Disney franchises
Lately, the public has been receiving a lot of mixed signals from Black Adam the actor. At first, it was his blatant disregard to acknowledge the release of the DCU movie on the streaming platform, HBO Max. This has been a matter of great debate among fans, considering how vocal and enthusiastic The Rock has been about his initiative for 15 years. Later, a peace treaty signed and bound by an oath between pawn and master was supposed to reduce the boulder’s dream to a side hustle — a multi-planetary manifestation, if anything.

After a sweet disappointment, it now appears as though The Rock isn’t leaving anything to chance and the wrestler-turned-actor realizes that simply listening to the crowd might not do the trick anymore. One needs to get one’s feet on firmer ground so as not to get stuck in the sands of domestic politics and drama. As such, Dwayne Johnson was looking for a safe haven, preferably under the banner of the biggest players in town – The Walt Disney Company.
Whether it’s Marvel Studios (his recent multiple shout-outs for DC’s CBM counterpart) or the Lucasfilm franchise – the actor has set his heart on finding a home and anchor for himself and his loyal cohort base who suddenly find themselves lost at sea, ever since a dream appeared to them. Black Adam Threesome before getting up rudely.
Is planning The Rock a strategic move for Disney star Wars?
Among the many easter eggs and teasers being thrown our way, almost like a game of dodgeball, The Rock suddenly posted a video of himself in a private jet with papers stretched out in front of him as the actor gives stationery to people’s infamous visor while John Williams star Wars symphony, The force is with you, playing in tandem. The video sent people’s hopes to ionosphere levels with expectations that the actor might finally transition into the world of Lucasfilm.
The timing of the video comes at the perfect moment, and is an opening into the vast, vast universe that is the MandoVerse, as recent reports indicate that Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni may be looking to host a new addition to the Mando family, before moving on to bigger and better projects. Rumors and fan speculation at this moment only indicate that the project may be a direct entry of the Star Wars: Rebels But nothing has been confirmed yet. Although Favreau and Filoni have promised that the new project will be the last piece of the puzzle before the MandoVerse can set itself up for a spin-off.
If The Rock is already planning to join the star Wars Brothers, there’s no limit to the cast of choice characters the actor can portray, but it’s still not likely that an A-lister will be set anytime soon.
