Seems like he's in everything lately. Why not play Luke Cage? He wouldn't have to change his hair for the part. He posted it in his Twitter feed.
The Rock to play Luke Cage?
You know I forgot about Michael Jai White good suggestion. I've also heard some say Terry Crews. Iron Fist seems like a must for the film. Luke Cage in the Marvel film universe would open the door to a lot of characters who have been associated with or a part of Heroes for Hire.
As far as wrestlers go I think Rock is one the best actors but hey every is entitled to their opinion. Rock's ethnicity is always gonna bother someone. He's half black he's half Samoan, he's not dark enough, he's too handsome or not handsome enough to play the part. People are entitled to their gripes about an actor's ability or appearance. Honestly though not to put down any other suggestions I've seen to play the role on this blog but be honest the Rock attached to a super hero will bring in people who aren't familiar with the character.
