Do you think  Dwayne Johnson aka "The rock" would be perfect for the role of Black Adam if they ever did a Captain marvel movie.

If he could act, it would be perfect.

#3 Posted by NiteFly (1459 posts) - - Show Bio

Look: So-so.

Acting: No where near up to par.

No, he could not pull it off.

He does have the look for it...but I dunno about his acting skill.

he would  do the ppls eyebrow and his famous line "it doesn't matter!!!"

in a scene. i thought they stop the movie.

Possibly. The look is definitely there, he can have a menacing physical presence, just as Black Adam does. Acting? Not so sure. He's gotten better since his movie debut, but his charisma alone would not carry the role. He needs to be menacing, merciless, ruthless in his act. However there are few actors with such physicality as him, so that could play in his favor.

Honestly, he's got the look down, he's got the right build for it, and I don't think it would be hard to act like Black Adam (just make sure that when you yell you YELL, and you always look mad, and presto....)

The Rock is eye-candy, not to be taken seriously as an actor in any way whatsoever.

How much acting do you need to play BA? He's mean, a badass, emotionless outside of being angry or tearing people up, that's right up Sir Dwayne's ally!  It's not like he's gonna be in a three hour drama gunning for the acadamy awards with his rile, he'll be tearing it up with Cap for the better part of the pic, I think he'd be awsome

The Rock as the SAME EXACT tone of speech in everything that he does.  It would be The Rock in a costume, not Black Adam played by The Rock.

Again, he's playing BA, not doing a drama on a historical character for the critics,  I think he can handle playing him on the screen, and he's come along way since good ole Scorpion King :-)

The movies that show he has come a long way from Scorpion King.

Scorpion King was fun.....it was dumb, but it was fun.

It was the new age Conan movie....it had some pretty good action scenes and was fairly impressive in the fact that it hardly used any SFX.

Uh, the only movie I can think of that had the Rock in it after that was Walking Tall.

On the back of the case at Rogers (where I rented it) they said the movie was two hours long....WRONG!

It was barely an hour and a half. It ended, and I was like, "Wait, what? It's over?"

Brandon Molale makes a better looking Captain marvel than the rock.

There is no specific movie that has propelled him, he's come along way as in he's made more movie's and getting better with his talent at being on the big screen, and I think he went against type and plaid a really funner and differenct character in Be Cool, irrespective of whether anyone liked the movie or not.
