Thanks to a tweet from The Rock himself, rumours are spreading that Dwayne Johnson may star in Batman vs. Superman as a villain.
Batman vs. Superman rumours seem to be flooding in on a daily basis. Recently we had storied of Joaquin Phoenix being sought for the role of Lex Luthor in the sequel to last year’s Man of Steel, which will be released in 2015.
Now, last year’s most bankable movie star Dwayne Johnson is the latest actor to be linked to Warner Bros. big sequel, thanks to a tweet from the man himself.
‘We just had a big meeting w/ Warner Bros CEO re: @DCComics 2014 we will partner up and create the cool bad a**ery. #RockTalk @ActionTilson’
The tweet may be regarding another DC based movie altogether, as DC are looking to create a movie universe much like that of Marvel’s. Could he be Black Adam? It could mean that he is added to Batman vs. Superman, but as who? Could he be Lex Luthor? Or is Doomsday more suited for the former WWE star?
If he does sign up for Batman vs. Superman, he will join a cast that already includes Ben Affleck (Batman), Henry Cavill (Superman) and Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman).
More on this when we have it.
