Dwayne Johnson Teases Possible DC Comics Film


Has Dwayane Johnson been taking lessons from Vin Diesel? Much like Diesel spent part of this past year teasing a possible role in a Marvel Studios comic book adaptation, which turned out to be Guardians Of The Galaxy, Johnson has taken to Twitter to suggest some future involvement with a comic book film. But this time it is one from corporate siblings Warner Brothers and DC Comics.

Anyone care to take a stab as to what he means by “cool bad assery”? I suppose it could be in reference to Warner’s attempts to get a movie based on DC’s intergalactic bounty hunter and bad boy Lobo, but at last we heard that project was pretty much dead.

With casting still ongoing for Warner’s Batman Vs Superman, which should start shooting any day now, it is possible that Johnson may be up for a role in that 2015 tentpole. But who? Perhaps the alien killing machine known as Doomsday? Or perhaps since the film is also scheduled to feature Justice League members Wonder Woman and quite possibly Green Lantern, might Johnson be up for another League member in the form of J’onn J’onnz, the Martian Manhunter.
