I think Black Adam is one of those films that is caught in a web of new leadership. And this will always be one of the biggest mysteries, I think, not only for me and for us on our side, but for our entire industry.
Johnson also added that he and others are wondering why, given the box office performance (some sources believe the project was not profitable) and other positive aspects of the film, Black Adam was not included in the new DCU. James Gunn.
