Dwayne Johnson in talks with Warner over potential DC property

Let the speculation begin!

Dwayne Johnson was recently announced as the top-grossing actor of 2013, and 2014 could be another big year for the star, who has teased a significant meeting with Warner over a potential DC Comics project.

Johnson mentioned the meeting through his Twitter feed, referring to a “big meeting”, the upshot of which seems to be plans to “partner up and create the cool bad assery”.

You can read Johnson’s words for yourself, below…


No specifics then, but plenty to get the rumour mill ticking over nicely as to what exactly Johnson could be signing on for…

Johnson had previously been heavily linked to a Lobo adaptation, only for the star himself to pronounce that project dead in the water. However, perhaps the landscape has now changed once more…

Either that, or he’s going to be playing a pumped-up Lex Luthor. He has the hairline for it, after all…

 

What do you think Johnson could be involved with? Tell us, below!

      I'd put money on that being a Green Lantern cameo in the Justice League movie / end of Batman vs Superman. I don't think he's right for Martian Manhunter. But there's also Darkseid....

      I thought he had signed on the dotted line to play Luke Cage for Marvel? Regarding DC though, is he too big a star now to play Doomsday?

      Doomsday would be much better in CG now I think, he constantly changes his appearance the more he fights so I think that make up and prosthetics wouldn't do as good a job. Personally I think DTRJ would make an excellent Kilowog from the Green Lantern Corps :D

      Hence why I thought GL - cameo it in Batman / Superman, re-launch the franchise with the most bankable star in the world in it. Might make up for the inevitable rush script on an outdated franchise. But I doubt it.

      No offense but why would WB/DC waste Dwayne as a villain? The guy oozes charisma and charm.

      I still think Elba would make a better John Stewart than Rock as the rock is just that, too charismatic and charming, whereas Elba could play the straight faced slightly dour not so much fun man that Stewart kinda is. As for who Rocky could play, Doomsday would be f*****g awesome, but i agree with Ali, he will not play a baddie, at the moment he is FAR too bankable as a good but a*s kicking guy so DC will want him around for multiple movies i would say. Which leaves the question,,,,,who?

      I agree with Elba for Jon Stewart, but I fear Marvel have him locked down like Jamie Alexander. It's a travesty Marvel haven't used Idris for Blade or Black Panther.
