Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson On HERCULES Vs. SUPERMAN; "I Would Whup His Ass!"

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson On HERCULES Vs. SUPERMAN; "I Would Whup His Ass!"

He's rumoured to be up for a role in a future DC Comics movie, but when asked how he thinks Henry Cavill's Superman would fare in a battle with his Hercules, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson claims that the Man of Steel wouldn't stand a chance. Is this a preview of Superman vs. Darkseid in Justice League?

In an interview with Digital Spy, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson was asked who he believes would win in a battle between Hercules and Superman. The question came up as a result of Hercules director Brett Ratner recently stating that he used to pit the two iconic heroes against each other in comic books he created as a child. "I know Henry very well," Johnson revealed. "He's a buddy of mine. Who would win in a fight between Hercules and Superman? Just to be clear, you're talking about my Hercules against Henry's Superman? I would take my club and I would knock Superman into next week, and then I would whup his ass for leaving! That's what I would do. [Laughs]" The Rock has been rumoured to be up for a role in a future DC Comics movie, and many believe we'll see him as Darkseid in Justice League. Could this gentle ribbing be a glimpse at what's to come in that movie? We'll have to wait and see! What do you guys think?

And no...

Keep dreaming, Dwayne.
MrReese - 7/20/2014, 4:37 PM
Black Adam like a mutha[frick]a!
TheBuoyWonder - 7/20/2014, 4:38 PM
But how would he know Cavill well unless he was in a movie with him!

And pigs have wings. Riiiight. Superman should whip Hercules a new one.

Superman would make a woman out of Hercules.

UltimateCookie - 7/20/2014, 4:44 PM
Forget Herc v.sSupes. I'm pretty sure The Rock could kill Henry Cavill.
AlexanderLykins - 7/20/2014, 4:44 PM
I would like to see Dwayne try UFC or MMA like Bautista did.
GRAYSHOT - 7/20/2014, 4:45 PM
@TheAmbassador HAHAHAHA
AlexanderLykins - 7/20/2014, 4:46 PM
I'm not sure if Bautista was messing with the guy or if he just can't fight.

ComicsBornAndBred - 7/20/2014, 4:47 PM
Yea in reality, The Rock would ROCK the shit outta Cabill. He would lay him the [frick] out lol. He's make a menacing and intimidating Darkseid. I like him as Lobo too. Maybe even DEATHSTROKE in a Batman solo film
DoubleDion - 7/20/2014, 4:48 PM
Superman would snap his neck... too soon?
AlexanderLykins - 7/20/2014, 4:48 PM
The Rock was born to play Lobo.

He really is a perfect Black Adam, but I bet DC wants him for Captain Marvel...
DrKinsolving - 7/20/2014, 4:51 PM

I saw that fight, I think Bautista is too nice, it made me feel like Bautista was afraid to hurt the other guy, not a characteristic an MMA fighter should have.... Can't wait to see him in Guardians though

Not that I'm interested in the Hercules movie, but this is an interesting match up - Everyone knows Superman's powers and weaknesses, and one of his weaknesses is magic, but that's usually spells and energy and stuff. Would Hercules' strength count as magic, due to his demi-god status? And does that mean Superman would be vulnerable to Hercules' strength, or does his weakness to magic only pertain to spells/enchantments/artifacts/etc?
Chekkarma - 7/20/2014, 4:55 PM
Lol love his sense of humor..."I would whip his ass just for leaving" .Superman would obliterate Hercules though

AlexanderLykins - 7/20/2014, 4:56 PM
I got that feeling too. Dave is a really nice guy so I'd imagine jumping into a ring and beating the crap out of someone is tough for him.
BruceWayneNewton - 7/20/2014, 4:58 PM
I think he would make a great Darkseid. Gotta love the rock!
McGee - 7/20/2014, 5:02 PM
Is that right Rock?

Dwayne needs to worry about wack a** Lucy movie whipping his a** at the BO next week for real.
PAF - 7/20/2014, 5:04 PM
How he got so far in Hollywood I have no idea, because I know damn well it wasn't for his "acting"
PAF - 7/20/2014, 5:04 PM

Dead. Lmao.
Destined - 7/20/2014, 5:09 PM
@PAF for real tho lol. That's truth too which makes it shameful. Next week will be a lame one for new releases.
TheDarkKryptonian - 7/20/2014, 5:15 PM
Yeeeeeaaaaaah, keep telling yourself that.
cmay13 - 7/20/2014, 5:22 PM
the rock claims he knows everyone really well lol
ckal - 7/20/2014, 5:22 PM
Well, there's no question that Dwayne would whup Cavill's ass.
dnno1 - 7/20/2014, 5:24 PM
That's not how The Rock says it. It's supposed to go like this:

SuperCat - 7/20/2014, 5:29 PM
The Rock should whup Brett's ass.
DrunkenNukem - 7/20/2014, 5:32 PM
@Mcgee....that trailer was....i mean..it has some good momments...but its kinda crazy
DrunkenNukem - 7/20/2014, 5:33 PM
"I Would Whup His Ass!"

You are late Dwayne, Bryan Singer did that with Superman Returns
McGee - 7/20/2014, 5:41 PM

If that was a real trailer, I'd be all like "Man, I kinda want to see it!.....wait, what's it about?"
nowtheresaBATman - 7/20/2014, 5:43 PM
Supes' would use Herc's club as a toothpick after biting his head off & spitting it out. Because, after all, that's how Cavill's Superman rolls.
Desrow - 7/20/2014, 5:48 PM

MightyZeus - 7/20/2014, 6:08 PM
Well Hercules is part of the reason Superman was created in the comics. Superman's based on Hercules.

I just have a hunch that the Rock could be playing Doomsday.
CavEl - 7/20/2014, 6:16 PM
@MightyZues - No, Superman is based off the Jewish Golem.

@TheBuoyWonder - Or, The Rock was in FF with Gina Carano, Henry is dating Gina Carano, Henry and The Rock met through Gina...
