Black Adam actor Dwayne Johnson called out entertainment outlet IGN after the site posted box office numbers comparing the star’s DC epic to Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.
Ever since Black Adam hit theater screens back in October, Johnson has voiced his opinion many times when asked to compare Warner Bros.’s DCU with Marvel Studios MCU.
Thus far the WWE superstar-turned-Hollywood giant has remained fairly civil when these sorts of comparisons have come up, saying things like “there is no ‘war’” brewing between the two companies as the DCU goes through regime change.
However, as was the case back in his wrestling days, Johnson has been known to snap from time to time, and that is exactly the case here, as he calls out IGN for another MCU/DCU comparison. Dwayne Johnson, star of this Fall’s DC epic Black Adam, called out IGN for a social post from the entertainment outlet comparing his most recent film to Marvel Studios’ Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.
The IGN post in question shared a graphic noting that Black Panther: Wakanda Forever had already surpassed Black Adam’s total box office haul in just two weeks:
“Black Panther: Wakanda Forever has earned over $400 million at the global box office, making it the most profitable superhero film to be released this fall. Black Adam, which came out in October, has earned $353 million at the global box office.”
