The Black Adam trailer will be with us any moment now and allegedly DC is putting their best foot forward with this trailer. They want to convince everybody you have to go see this. So the Stinger at the end of the trailer is going to be, you guessed it, probably by the name of the video, but you probably guessed it ahead of this Henry Cavill as the one the only Man of Steel. So is this in fact going to happen? Well, I doubt it. But hey, if internally WB and Discovery are looking at the traction for Black Adam and it’s not where they would like it, and they’re afraid that the film could suffer, maybe the rumors are true that Henry Cavill will be appearing at the end of the film as Superman, and if they believe that, that will in fact push this movie to do better than they believe it.
Well, with just the rock being the spotlight alone, then tossing him in there would make sense. Would it ruin the big surprise? Yes would it make more people interested? Probably i mean, tons of Witcher fans are going to show up because Henry Cavill’s Superman fans are going to show up. The Rock fans are gonna show up so you gotta you got a good amount of you know fan bases there to cover. Now ultimately is this true are some of these DC fan pages reporting this somehow in the know? I don’t know. I’d like to believe Henry Cavill is coming back like so many of them have reported time and time again over the last three to four years, but there’s just no indication of.
Black Adam has reportedly added a new, DCEU-altering post-credit scene
If they choose to reveal it in the trailer, that’ll be one thing. It’ll be like she, Hulk, right, where people were like, oh, I’m not going to watch she, Hulk. That’s why they added Daredevil in there. And probably, yeah, they wanted to get people excited. And you add Daredevil in there as a Stinger and suddenly everybody was talking about she, Hulk. It’s a smart tactic. Does the rock need Henry Cavill as Superman to boost his popularity? No, because the rock is more popular than Henry Cavill.
But if WB believes showing Superman will help tickets sell out and people to get excited for it, they should put him in there as a Stinger just to be able to pipe people up. Maybe don’t. Show everything. Maybe have Black Adams say who are you? And then just show us the red flapping Cape or something, right? Get excitement going. Don’t show us Cavill, just tease it right? I think that could work, and I would certainly get excited for it, but I something about this just doesn’t sit right with me. I just look, these DC fan pages have been saying every single show now coming up from a Comic Con to investors call to something, every single one will reveal that Ben Affleck is back for a limited HBO The Batman series.
Hasn’t happened, and it’s been five years. So we’ll see, I guess, right? But betting people don’t put a lot of money down on this one. You’re bound to get burned.
