It certainly sounds as if the Fast & Furious star is talking about Lobo, and it could be that this is one of Warner Bros.' rumoured lower budget DC adaptations. Of course, Batman Vs. Superman is shooting next year, so could it be that The Rock will have a cameo in that too? Sound off below!

UPDATE: Check out the shirt that The Rock is wearing in this promo for his Q&A...

Cool! I'm fine with him as Lobo, he can definitely use his charismatic energy to that role.
webslinger84 - 12/31/2013, 11:16 AM
NOOO!!!!!!! I wanted him to be Luke Cage.
MBZ1993 - 12/31/2013, 11:18 AM
if you smellllllllllllalalalala what lobo......is cooking!!!
Custer28 - 12/31/2013, 11:18 AM
Lobo or Black Adam.
Custer28 - 12/31/2013, 11:20 AM
LOBO is perfect for him.

Omarvls - 12/31/2013, 11:20 AM

Marvel & DC/WB will be fighting for talent
I mean he would of been a cool Luke Cage
Melkaticox - 12/31/2013, 11:20 AM

Well, I guess that means he's not going to be Luke Cage. Isaiah Mustafa is it, then.
Geeksiah - 12/31/2013, 11:20 AM

Not Black Adam but the Captain formally known as Marvel.
Watch as Shazam starts becoming a more prominent DC character.

thewonderer - 12/31/2013, 11:22 AM

You do know that Isaiah Mustafa stars in pornos now right? Check his imdb page.
GeekyCheekyChic - 12/31/2013, 11:22 AM
Martian Manhunter
Custer28 - 12/31/2013, 11:22 AM
He doesn't agree with John Stewart, I don't think it's the Lantern.
TheBoss117 - 12/31/2013, 11:23 AM

So is Black Adam
Omarvls - 12/31/2013, 11:23 AM

BvS or Justice League

The Flash
Wonder Woman

Batman Solo

Justice League Final Crisis
Green Lantern Reboot
thewolfx - 12/31/2013, 11:23 AM
Nooo the rock is not lobo you damn idiots!

Hes black adam

That jason guy from game of thrones is lobo
Geeksiah - 12/31/2013, 11:23 AM
MM while a good choice would just look wrong hulking over Superman
Omarvls - 12/31/2013, 11:23 AM
Yeah Maybe
John Stewart
hero1684 - 12/31/2013, 11:24 AM
Awesome! But was hoping he would land Shazam role!
Or maybe he will be Black Atom?...could be for a villain role???
Geeksiah - 12/31/2013, 11:24 AM
The Rock would be wasted as a bad guy, people want him as a good guy.
Vegeta - 12/31/2013, 11:25 AM
I'm hoping its Black Adam but Lobo seems more likely.
JoJo1982 - 12/31/2013, 11:25 AM
Ain't Luke Cage going straight to tv though, so that counts that out

GL!?! Lmao yeah have GL be the biggest guy in the group, that's smart, lol *sarcasm*

Either Lobo or Black Adam

Personally I think he would be fit for black Adam
Custer28 - 12/31/2013, 11:25 AM

Can also be.

LOBO,BLACK ADAM or Martian Manhunter.
GreenLantern519 - 12/31/2013, 11:25 AM
Grimfoe - 12/31/2013, 11:26 AM
I hope it's not Lobo. I'm just not really a fan.

I love the Rock, however and I think he needs to be a Superhero. Shazam would be cool, although I'm still pissed they changed the name. I can see why, but I'm still pissed.
ALmazing - 12/31/2013, 11:27 AM
Can they make Lobo work in the DCCU established by MoS? Maybe Lex Luthor? No... most likely GL... I guess we'll find out.
ThePowerCosmic - 12/31/2013, 11:27 AM
Would never want him in a Marvel film...you can have him DC. Hope theres no comedy or the DCfanboys will crap themselves in rage!
6of13 - 12/31/2013, 11:27 AM
Jason Mamoa would be perfect for Lobo.

Also, I think Liev Schrieber could also be an excellent Lobo.

My guess for the Rock could be Ares. He's got the arrogance to pull it off.
GreenLantern519 - 12/31/2013, 11:28 AM
I feel like Lobo should be low on the priority list when it comes to characters, I mean they only have half of the JL officially cast right now. We still need our Green Lantern, Flash and MM/Cyborg/Aquaman (any one of those)
Nerfherder1 - 12/31/2013, 11:29 AM
He was already supposed to play black Adam in the failed shazam movie!!!! But whatever movie it is, it's gonna be a while
TragicBronson - 12/31/2013, 11:29 AM
The rock draws too much of a good guy persona, he isn't a villain.

Cyborg, Martian Manhunter, or Stewart is imagine.

Nah, calling it: Aquaman.
TheDemonsHead - 12/31/2013, 11:30 AM

-Green Latern (John Stewart)

-Cyborg (he'd be perfect for this horrible characters role)
imnotwearinghockeypants - 12/31/2013, 11:30 AM
Rock would be terrible for Lobo. It'd just be the Rock in a Lobo suit, much in the same way Affleck will be Affleck in a Batman suit. Get a no name to become the role, not an established star to wear the role.
6of13 - 12/31/2013, 11:31 AM
If I were betting on this, it has to be Ares (although Daniel Craig would be my choice to play the part).
Nerfherder1 - 12/31/2013, 11:31 AM
Agree he'd be perfect for cyborg... But it would be such a waste.
EpitomeofAwesome - 12/31/2013, 11:31 AM
Scooby - 12/31/2013, 11:32 AM
The Rock is playing Darkseid :)
Nerfherder1 - 12/31/2013, 11:33 AM
That's a cool idea
TragicBronson - 12/31/2013, 11:33 AM
Pretty sure they know if they make him a villain, they're throwing their movie under the bus (at least worldwide).

There's just some leading actors(or actresses) you can't make the antagonist in a film. Their movie would probably be considered worse than Jonah Hex, Green Hornet, and Green Lantern combined.
THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 12/31/2013, 11:33 AM
Would be perfect for Black Adam, can't think of anyone better. But who knows.
Ocelot - 12/31/2013, 11:34 AM
Don't see him playing a villain, he's probably the main character from Vertigo's "Sleeper".
