“Honestly, I can’t even speak to any of it. I don’t really know what their plan is, and I’m psyched to see what they’re doing with the DC world. For me, I’m really excited about that, Peter Safran and James Gunn’s vision for DC, those guys, they know what they’re doing. So we’re going to give it to him. I’m excited.”
The duo, who now head DC Studios, are set to reveal the first concrete information about their upcoming program in the coming weeks, which are expected to shed some light on the fate of much of DC’s current roster.
Centineo previously mentioned to Collider that he tried to contact Gunn directly, saying: “I sent him a DM. I sent a carrier pigeon to his house.”
The Black Adam the actor also told THR how much fun he had working on the film, noting that he never “He enjoyed four months on set [he] did” for that movie and the memory of how friendly everyone was to each other:
“We had such an amazing time making that movie. I don’t think I’ve ever enjoyed four months on set as much as I did making that movie. There were so many of us and we all bonded together and everyone was so willing to just be friends and we really they’ve become family, including Dwayne.”
Centineo also made sure to give Johnson plenty of credit, looking back on the dinners and experiences they shared together and how much heart the film had from the cast:
“He set the tone, not just for the cast, but for everyone involved. We were constantly going out to dinner and spending time together, and I’ll carry that with me for the rest of my life, not to mention the lessons and working with such iconic and deeply experienced and talented actors, our DP Lawrence Sher, our director [Jaume Collet-Serra], but for me it was the heart of the film that I will take with me forever. And I’m so grateful to have been a part of it.”
Will Noah Centineo Return For Gunn’s DCU?
Even with the negative news about the fallout from Black AdamNoah Centineo chose to focus on the positive memories he had while working on the film with Dwayne Johnson and the crew. The way he spoke so warmly about shooting the film for four months at least shows how much the experience meant to him as he jumped at the chance to bring a new hero in Atom Smasher to life as he became a member of the Justice Society of America.
While his role in Black Adam has been a key supporter, noting that he’s not in the loop about what’s going on with the new DC Universe under James Gunn and Peter Safrano, especially with The Rock now out of the picture. Other actors like ShazamZachary Levi, are in the same boat, leaving many actors from the DC universe in uncertain territory.
Aside from a rebooted Superman solo film and stories focusing on other big names from the Justice League, there are no signs of what characters will be central to Gunn and Safran’s new DCU.
The shakeup will reportedly be a “wide but not blanket reset” Little chance was left for Al Rothstein to claw his way back to the big screen.
