Comic book rumor time, now starring The Rock

3 years agoby:

DC comics new logo basic

At least today's rumor comes courtesy of the rumor's subject, namely Dwayne Johnson himself.  In response to a tweet reading "I could see Rock playing in DC movies. Gravedigger or John Stewart (JL's Green Lantern)," Johnson tweeted a response that simply said "Funny U say that.."

Now while some may argue that this confirms/reveals exactly nothing, I would argue that Johnson has such an open and welcoming relationship that he wouldn't tease something like this unless it was a genuine possibility.  Johnson, along with Vin Diesel, works very hard to keep their fans informed, and it would only harmful be for them to outright make shit up.

So even though this possible mystery DC project may eventually fall through, what do you think The Rock might be cooking on his back burner? Could it be a revived version of the SHAZAM movie that Johnson was once attached to, or something else entirely?

What say you?

Extra Tidbit: It has also been suggested that since Johnson's JOURNEY 2 director Brad Peyton is currently working on LOBO, perhaps...

If they ever bring in the Red Lanters I think he'd make a great Atrocitous. Either way, I dig Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. I look at both him and Jason Statham as actors that have the ability and range to move beyond being "just action guys".

Nope.

He should stick to tooth-fairy 3 and Disney crap, I really don't want to see this guy in any more movies. He has no range and would make a horrible hero or villain. Any movie he would star in for DC or even Marvel would be a guaranteed bomb.

He'd make a great Black Adam.

I still think the only guy who could play Shazam because he looks so much like the character is Patrick Warburton, but that's just me.

I could see Johnson being Lobo too. John Stewart not so much.

This. If there was a comic book role he was born to play it would be Black Adam. Just give him the pointy ears and its done.

Meh.

Rumors about DC Comics movies are more numerous than stars in the sky. Does no good to speculate about them until a camera is actually rolling.
