Even by the standards of a franchise that’s been in a state of perpetual flux for years, the past month has been a rollercoaster of emotions for the DCU, its fans, and some of the show’s current (and now former) stars.

Rather than changing the power hierarchy as it so boldly proclaimed, the long-awaited blockbuster underperformed at the box office, drew allegations of financial irregularities and was eventually dumped by co-CEOs James Gunn and Peter Safran, with all plans for sequels and spinoffs dead in the water.
Amid the shockwaves echoing from The Rock’s short-lived tenure as a superhero, it was claimed he turned down the chance for a cameo Shazam! wrath of the godsafter reportedly considering it under him – although he’s listed as the series’ producer via his Seven Bucks banner.
In a bid to douse the 50-year-old’s reputation with even more fuel, Johnson has now been offered to turn down an invitation to give him his immense physique The Lightningand the fans are unsurprisingly having a big day with the scuttlebutt.
To be fair, even if he’d agreed to stop by for Ezra Miller’s solo extravaganza, he’d probably be on the cutting room floor by now.
