After being driven out of the DC Universe as Superman, Henry Cavill fires The Rock’s ex-wife Dany Garcia as manager and breaks all ties.
In the Black Adam mid-credits scene, recorded in September after Dwayne Johnson asked that Cavill is in the film, Cavill made his comeback as Superman. But it now seems that before his highly publicized comeback, Cavill’s personal drama was already in the works before his days as Superman were really over.
Dany Garcia served as Cavill’s manager. Additionally, Garcia is not only Dwayne Johnson’s manager but also his ex-wife. And if the Puck News newsletter is to be believed, Cavill fired his management just months before he portrayed Superman in Black Adam, a figure of strength, justice, and hope, in the movie.
Whether the rumor is true, both stars have been gradually cutting their connections. The actor who had made it known that he wanted to play Superman again had a great deal of hope thanks to Johnson, but that ambition was brutally shattered.
It’s not clear whether this management move had any connection to the drama that transpired at Warner Bros., but it provides a sad image of how everything turned out when Cavill was removed. Together, they create a troubling picture of an already problematic scenario. Add to that the report that Johnson allegedly leaked false numbers to improve the movie’s profits.
It’s thought that Dany Garcia was crucial in getting Cavill to feature in Black Adam. The reason behind the beloved Superman’s cameo was her relationship with Dwayne and Cavill.
