The Fast and Furious alum did offer some hope that despite his action-packed superhero flick not getting a follow-up, his character's story will still "explored" in the DC Extended Universe's future chapters.

"James Gunn and I connected, and Black Adam will not be in their first chapter of storytelling. However, DC and Seven Bucks have agreed to continue exploring the most valuable ways Black Adam can be utilized in future DC multiverse chapters."

The Rock also noted that he is giving the DC exec his support despite fans' fury at Gunn's recent decisions.

"James and I have known each other for years and have always rooted for each other to succeed."

He added, "It's no different now, and I will always root for DC (and Marvel) to win and WIN BIG. You guys know me, and I have very thick skin – and you can always count on me to be direct with my words. These decisions made by James and DC leadership represent their vision of DCEU through their creative lens."
