COULD DWAYNE JOHNSON BE A DC SUPERHERO??


Could Dwayne Johnson be Lobo??

THE ROCK IN DC COMICS

Most recently, a random Twitter user mentioned her desire to see The Rock as a DC superhero.  Dwayne Johnson, forever in touch with his fans, tweeted in response, “Funny U say that…“  That then sent the entire internt to go into a frenzy about who the Rock could be playing.

Bleeding Cool followed up with an interesting possibility: the antihero biker Lobo.  Bleeding Cool admits their source is an untested one, who purportedly overheard Johnson boasting at a party that he will play Lobo.  But the rumor is a good fit. 

Lobo
There is a Lobo adaptation in development.  Brad Peyton, the director of Johnson’s last movie Journey 2: The Center of the Earth, is steering the ship.  And no actor really has that Lobo physique other than The Rock. 

An alien, Lobo works as an interstellar mercenary and bounty hunter. Introduced as a hardened, rarely used hardboiled villain in the 1980s, the character remained in limbo until his revival as an anti-hero biker in the early 1990s… “I have no idea why Lobo took off,” Giffen once said in an interview, referring to the 1990s incarnation of Lobo he created. “I came up with him as an indictment of the Punisher, Wolverine, hero prototype and somehow he caught on as the high violence poster boy. Go figure.” …

Lobo is a Czarnian with exceptional strength and fortitude. He enjoys nothing better than mindless violence and intoxication. Killing is an end in itself; his name roughly translates as “he who devours your entrails and thoroughly enjoys it.” He is also arrogant and self-centered, focusing almost solely on his own pleasures, although he proudly lives up to the letter of his promises: no more or no less than what he promised. Lobo is the last of his kind, having committed complete genocide by killing all the other Czarnians for fun.

Could Dwayne Johnson be in Green Lantern 2?
However, there has also been speculation, that Dwayne Johnson might actually be taking the role of John Stewart, The Green Lantern. Which could be something quite interesting, as the Green Lantern 2 is in production, and Dwayne has been the go to guy to help bolster a franchise.

Seeing that Green Lantern has done so purely at the box office, maybe the guys over at Warner are thinking that it would be more beneficial if Green Lantern 2, actually played out as buddy-cop film, just replace the cop with 2 superhero inter-galactic cops!

You have to admit having 2 Green Lanterns will prove to be quite an entertaining prospect essentially, if the two guys in the film are Ryan Reynolds and Dwayne Johnson. That’s the perfect way to bring in Comic fans, as well as a major female audience. And if they manage to get the film just right, Warner could be sitting with a highly successful franchise, and who knows it might even give there Justice League film a bit of a Boast.
