Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson In Talks For DC Comics Movie

Hercules Movie Dwayne Johnson

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is a name that pops up regularly when it comes to comic book movies. The Rock was in talks to play the starring role in a movie based on the DC Comics character Lobo, but last we heard that movie had been scrapped. The Rock has also campaigned in the past for the role of Marvel Comics character Luke Cage, but with that character tied up in a TV deal with Netflix, it's unlikely that a Luke Cage movie will be coming anytime soon.

During a Twitter Q&A today, The Rock was asked if he were ever approached by Marvel Comics or DC Comics, then what hero or villain would he like to play. Instead of directly answering the question as asked, The Rock dropped a bombshell by revealing he was already talking to Warner Bros. about a DC Comics property. The Rock tweeted, "We just had a big meeting w/ Warner Bros CEO re: @DCComics 2014 we will partner up and create the cool bad assery. #RockTalk."

So does this mean that the Lobo movie is back on? Or is The Rock talking about a completely different project? In regards to fan casting, The Rock has always been the favorite to play Black Adam in a Shazam movie, but there hasn't been any indication that a Shazam movie is imminent. There are really various characters in the DC Comics Universe that could be a good fit for The Rock. Any guesses as to which role he might be in the running for?
