A lot of people take it for granted but the upcoming arrival of Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson in the DC Extended Universe via Black Adam will undoubtedly shake things up and could even spell great things for the future of the franchise which, let's face it, has been in limbo for years now.
The extent of Johnson's DCEU contract remains a mystery but it's safe to assume that he'll be sticking around for quite a long time in hopes of reinvigorating the DC film universe.
The Rock has always been a believer of the DCEU and has stated in previous interviews that he wants to elevate the franchise, even going as far as issuing a warning to the Marvel Cinematic Universe about the paradigm shift Black Adam will cause within the comic book film industry. Apparently, "The Great One" has huge plans for the franchise and according to tipster Daniel Richtman, he wants to lead the franchise moving forward.
In his recent Patreon scoop, Richtman said that The Rock wants to become the DCEU's main hero. Honestly, that would be a tough task considering the franchise revolves around established characters like Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman. But then again, the true status of Henry Cavill is still unknown to this day and Ben Affleck is most certainly on his way out after The Flash.

I think we can all agree that the DCEU has been one convoluted mess and the general belief amongst fans is that there's no way of fixing it unless Warner Bros. decides to pull the rest button and reboot the entire franchise. However, if we're talking star power alone, The Rock will definitely bring a lot of attention to the DCEU which is, of course, a good thing. The real question is if he can back up his claims.
