Speculation is never in short supply when it comes to comic book movies, and now Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson has given us something definitely worth thinking about. The actor held a Q&A on Twitter and, when asked about which Marvel or DC character he'd want to play, Johnson revealed he had a "big meeting" with Warner Bros' CEO about DC Comics.

First and foremost, it's important to note this obviously isn't confirming he'll appear on the big screen in a DC movie. A meeting doesn't automatically mean the the opportunity will pan out, after all. That said, this isn't the first time Rock's name has been attached to DC movies. He's stated he would love to play Black Adam and he was previously attached to a Lobo project. It's also worth noting the big dude was sporting a Batman shirt for his Q&A picture.

If Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson does end up landing an opportunity with the DC cinematic universe, who do you think he should play? Have fun speculating below, Viners.

Comic Viner Captain13 found something very interesting on Instagram. Could The Rock be joining the Green Lantern Corps?

Black Adam or Bane.

I would prefer him as Black Adam.

Black Adam

Maybe a Greek god for a possible WW solo? Ares?

Holy crap! Action Tilson is an acquaintance of mine and a pretty good contributor to my website! Awesome and strange to see him on here.

As for being on topic, I usually want him to stay away from DC/Marvel movies because I've been a tad sour towards him for the last few years but I think he would make a pretty good Black Adam. Or…maybe even a John Stewart?

I could see him playing clay face for some reason. Also Darkseid

@the_stegman: yea i see hom being Ares. Dc still fears that a solo movie with a woman leading may not make a lot of money and everyone knows the rock is a popular money maker in hollywood so adding him as the main villian would make sense.

he would be an awesome new version of bane

#14 Posted by flazam (2608 posts) - - Show Bio

He's probably gonna be Black Adam or Lobo or Ares or Mongul

The Rock tends to make movies cheesy

COME ON SHAZAM!!!!!!!!!! DO IT ROCK. though i thought disney had him locked down seeing as he was in so many disney movies and tv shows....

#16 Posted by ImagineMan16 (467 posts) - - Show Bio

I have a bad feeling they would wind up casting him as Darkseid...

#17 Posted by fodigg (6209 posts) - - Show Bio

I think he'd make a great Teth Adam. The character is basically a "heel" from wrestling.

Martian Manhunter. He is big and intimidating like the current Martian Manhunter.

He also kind of looks like Simon Baz.

#21 Posted by daredevil21134 (14005 posts) - - Show Bio

Please just keep him away from Luke Cage

#22 Edited by ccraft (10170 posts) - - Show Bio

Black Adam, Lobo, or Ares.

I think it would be awesome to see Dwayne Johnson in a cbm :)

#23 Posted by jackbensley777 (776 posts) - - Show Bio

#24 Posted by glclemg (8 posts) - - Show Bio

Rock could play Dr. Fate, Cyborg or Aquaman. I can see him doing a diferent take on Aquaman.

#25 Posted by Knightfall225 (2085 posts) - - Show Bio

@glclemg: aquaman nah but cyborg would be interesting

#26 Posted by fil123 (677 posts) - - Show Bio

I heard that a Shazam movie was on the cards but its off now due to Man of Steel's success. Such a shame but the Rock would make a good Black Adam.

Watch him be cast as Lex Luthor.

#35 Edited by Herx (492 posts) - - Show Bio

well I think he could pull off the physical aspects of Black Adam off (haven't seen many films with him in, so unfortuanatly my cinema knowledge of him runs along the lines of a bunch of Disney films and G.I.Joe retaliation... with retaliation being the highlight). He'd deffinantly have to be one of the more physically present characters, though if it turns out that they have a great director and creation crew in this hypothetical movie (which doesn't have the executives of time warner breathing down their back all the time) I wouldn't be surprised if they went a completely different rout and had had him play a character who doesn't have a strong physical presence on screen i.e. Dr. William Magnus.

Please let him play Black Adam. PLEASE!!!

#37 Posted by Doomnaut (2434 posts) - - Show Bio

He would make the perfect Harley Quinn.

#38 Posted by TheAmazingImmortalMan (4517 posts) - - Show Bio

Black Adam or MMH or Killer Croc

#39 Posted by MonsterStomp (24330 posts) - - Show Bio

Black Adam for the win!!

#40 Posted by Fallen_Crippled (6473 posts) - - Show Bio

haha that's what I'm thinking. WB has been casting actors for roles tha are pissing some fans off.

#46 Edited by Jean_Luc_LeBeau (82981 posts) - - Show Bio

Jumping on that Black Adam bandwagon as well.

#47 Posted by Protoflash (154 posts) - - Show Bio

Booster Gold

Black Adam?Ares? DARKSEID?!? That's some bullsh.t...... Dude is OBVIOUSLY Captain Carrot

#49 Posted by CurlyInsaneGuy (109 posts) - - Show Bio

I know it's a lot less likely, but I think he could do really well as a more obscure character.

He would make a really good Crazy Quilt.

I hope DC/WB make a Shazam film with Dwayne Johnson and Brandon Molale. :(
