Dwayne Johnson’s post about the Black AdamBox office sales were branded as “low” by his fans.
The actor was apparently responding to reports that the DC film would make a $100 million loss which would have resulted in it being branded a ‘flop’ as he shared a post detailing the success of the superhero film praised.
Johnson also appeared as a producer Black Adam and in a new post shared on Wednesday (December 7), the jungle cruise Star said the film will gross between $52 million and $72 million.
This is considered a small amount considering the film’s budget ranged from $195 million to $230 million, with more than $100 million spent on marketing and advertising.
Johnson wrote on Twitter: “I’ve been waiting to confirm with the financiers before sharing this excellent #BlackAdam News – our film will WIN between $52 and $72 million. Fact.”
He continued, “With nearly $400 million worldwide, we’re gradually building our new franchise for the DC future (first, Captain America made $370 million).”
Many are questioning Johnson’s decision to compare the film’s box office to that of a Marvel film released 11 years ago.
“Why are you comparing the movie to the earnings of a 10 year old superhero movie?” @Jerk_Burton asked.
@CutAyer added, “Don’t consider Marvel films as competition, consider Snyderverse-era films as competition, or (the better option) adopt them as canon and expand on them in DC.”
“Yes, but Captain America was 10 years ago,” said @JOE_Danger, and @hausofviccc added, “Captain America was one of the first MCU movies more than a decade ago, while this is like the 11th DCEU movie.”
@Itspeacemaker then wrote, “You know it’s bad when the lead actor compares movie budgets to justify it’s not doing so well.”
