More Details On Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson's DC Movie Role; It WON'T Be Green Lantern

Taking part in a #RockTalk Q&A on Twitter, Hercules star Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson has revealed some more hints about his role in an upcoming DC comic book movie, confirming that as much as he likes the character, it won't be John Stewart/Green Lantern that he plays.

Taking part in a Q&A on Twitter earlier today, Dwayne Johnson has offered up a few very minor details about who he will be playing for DC and Warner Bros. in the near future. Does the fact that he debunks those Green Lantern rumours, but mentions Black Adam serve as proof that that is who he will play? With Lobo apparently scrapped, the list of candidates continues to shrink.

Either way, this is a huge win for DC (surely Marvel are kicking themselves for not nabbing the Fast & Furious star?), and it should be very interesting to see who he ends up playing and where he'll first turn up. For now, you can see Johnson in action in the first trailer for Hercules

He mentions both Green Lantern AND Black Adam and says he's NOT playing Green Lantern. Guess what that means...

Marvel better watch themselves. DC's coming after dat ass!

HELL YA! Black Adam here we go!

Black Adam it is then!
AlphaMasterFlex - 3/25/2014, 12:25 PM
Love the Rock so black Adam would be kickass and so glad it's not John hopefully this means Hal Jordan.
AntMan - 3/25/2014, 12:25 PM
Black Adam!

charlie2094 - 3/25/2014, 12:25 PM

I second that! Hal Jordan or no Lantern at all. Stewart is about as boring and bland a character as you can get

Black Adam would be a much better fit and way more complexities to work with as an actor, far more interesting character. Maybe we could get him as the first Justice League villain

wait he says black adam is a super hero, i thought black adam was a villian?
AntMan - 3/25/2014, 12:27 PM
He's pretty much all but confirmed he's playing Black Adam.
DaVinci31 - 3/25/2014, 12:28 PM
Hopefully they'll pull a TIH and keep parts like Ryan Reynolds and Mark Strong!

Watch it be some one other then his two favorite characters. It will be Icon. He crash landed on earth in the 1800s and in the 2000s he finally can use Earth's tech to get back home.

No John Stewart? In that case Hal Jordan of Earth, you have been chosen

AntMan - 3/25/2014, 12:31 PM
Black Adam is a anti-hero/villain.
AlphaMasterFlex - 3/25/2014, 12:31 PM
I'd be cool with them keeping RR but it ain't happenin. Also is throw Cyborg & Shazam into contention (well known more so than black Adam, complex, never played).
MrReese - 3/25/2014, 12:32 PM
Rocky playing a villain? Sign me up!
Pasto - 3/25/2014, 12:33 PM
That doesn't work. Whenever a power user posts an article it doesn't go to the news section right away. It can sometimes take 5 or 6 minutes to get there.
AntMan - 3/25/2014, 12:33 PM
batz11 - 3/25/2014, 12:34 PM
I gotcha...oh well...I get firsts that way, ha, ha...Pasto is always in-bed with somebody...
GeekyCheekyChic - 3/25/2014, 12:34 PM
at this point WB should just make an would re-generate interest in the movie universe in regards to general public. For awhile ALL people could talk about was Man of Steel 2 Batfleck...then the meh. Make the announcement that you signed the Rock WB! People will be talking for months and months about Rock vs Batfleck and Cavill-Man
GenerationX - 3/25/2014, 12:34 PM
Rock, Black Adam is not a superhero. He'd be friggin perfect in the role though. I hope it's Black Adam
Mrjohill - 3/25/2014, 12:35 PM
It's gotta be bizarro
DaVinci31 - 3/25/2014, 12:35 PM
The fact that he called Black Adam a superhero confuses me, though.

GeekyCheekyChic - 3/25/2014, 12:36 PM
any chance Rock is swerving the fans and he is J'onn ?
Pasto - 3/25/2014, 12:36 PM
Black Adam started out as a superhero. Thats why he called him a superhero.
Omarvls - 3/25/2014, 12:36 PM
Black Adam
DaVinci31 - 3/25/2014, 12:36 PM
Of course he could of just misspoke and meant "super being" or something.
AntMan - 3/25/2014, 12:37 PM
Pasto - 3/25/2014, 12:38 PM
Again, Black Adam started out as a superhero. So when The Rock called him a superhero, he was indeed correct.
AntMan - 3/25/2014, 12:38 PM
Black Adam started of as a superhero.
Pasto - 3/25/2014, 12:38 PM
AlphaMasterFlex - 3/25/2014, 12:39 PM
It's not that big of a deal if the Rock mistook black Adam for a hero he's cool but he's still an actor, he once tweeted John Stewart is the best and the original green lantern and as much as I like him that's total Bullshit.

Maybe he just worded it a certain way because twitter has a limited character amount per post.
Omarvls - 3/25/2014, 12:39 PM

What would be the best way to introduce Black Adam into the DC/WB shared universe since it seems like it could happen in BvS or Justice League
