Dwayne Johnson recently took a meeting with DC to talk about the DCEU, Black Adam, Shazam! and what's to come.

Aquaman director James Wan took to Twitter to welcome The Rock to the club.

"Glad to have you in the club, my friend!" Wan tweeted.

Though Dwayne Johnson has been teasing a battle between his Black Adam and Henry Cavill's Superman, how about Black Adam vs. Jason Momo's Aquaman?!

Regarding Dwayne Johnson's meeting with the DCEU, apparently it went really well as The Rock said he's excited for what's to come.

"Had a very cool and strategic meeting with the heads of DC about their entire universe," Johnson first posted a few days ago. "As a hard core DC fan, to get a real sense of the tonal shifts and developments coming in these future movies has me fired up. Something we, as DC fans have all been waiting for for a very long time. Hope, optimism & FUN. Even when talking about the the most ruthless villain/anti-hero of all time finally coming to life. Prepare yourselves DC Universe."

Dwayne Johnson also alleviated a fan's fears about the DCEU.

"Totally hear you man. Nothing unnatural and real effort to expand and elevate the universe. Very cool stuff," Johnson replied and added a "thumbs up" emoji.

James Wan's Aquaman has an October 5, 2018 release; Dwayne Johnson's Shazam! is currently in development for a possible 2019 release.
