The Black Adam star Dwayne Johnson posted a Twitter video thanking everyone for the success of the Black Adam movie and talked about how he fought to get Henry Cavill back as Superman for a cameo appearance in the movie, despite Warner Bros. not initially keen on bringing back the actor.

Johnson said he wanted Black Adam to be ďthe most powerful, unstoppable force in the DC universe.Ē ďWe have to bring back the most powerful, unstoppable force of all time in any universe. And you guys know who Iím talking about? Of course, that is Superman. And thatís Henry Cavill.Ē

The DC star revealed that the studio didn't want to bring Cavill back but Johnson was not going to take No for an answer.

ďThis has been years in the making regarding bringing Henry Cavill back and years of strategic conversations and we were not going to take no for an answer,Ē he added. ďThere was no way, thereís no viable logical way that you can attempt to build out the DC Universe without the most powerful force and the greatest superhero of all time sitting on the sidelines. Itís impossible to do.Ē

Johnson continued, ďIt all comes back to where Superman you have to have Superman in the mix. So thatís why we fought hard to bring Superman back, Henry Cavill, and there was no other Superman, by the way, to bring back Henry Cavill is our generation Superman and in my opinion, the greatest Superman. And I mean that respectfully to the other actors, especially Christopher Reeve, but the greatest Superman of all time."

I don't see anywhere in the article where WB said they didn't want Cavill back, or why.

At the same time, if Johnson is gonna boast that he was responsible for making the studio put Cavill in, that means that actors, at least some anyway, do indeed have a say on casting. This is going to come back to bite them later.

He's a producer on Black Adam, too, so he would have more pull than some.
