Speculation is never in short supply when it comes to comic book movies, and now Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson has given us something definitely worth thinking about. The actor held a Q&A on Twitter and, when asked about which Marvel or DC character he'd want to play, Johnson revealed he had a "big meeting" with Warner Bros' CEO about DC Comics.

First and foremost, it's important to note this obviously isn't confirming he'll appear on the big screen in a DC movie. A meeting doesn't automatically mean the the opportunity will pan out, after all. That said, this isn't the first time Rock's name has been attached to DC movies. He's stated he would love to play Black Adam and he was previously attached to a Lobo project. It's also worth noting the big dude was sporting a Batman shirt for his Q&A picture.

If Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson does end up landing an opportunity with the DC cinematic universe, who do you think he should play? Have fun speculating below, Viners.

UPDATE

Comic Viner Captain13 found something very interesting on Instagram. Could The Rock be joining the Green Lantern Corps?

Holy crap! Action Tilson is an acquaintance of mine and a pretty good contributor to my website! Awesome and strange to see him on here.

As for being on topic, I usually want him to stay away from DC/Marvel movies because I've been a tad sour towards him for the last few years but I think he would make a pretty good Black Adam. Or…maybe even a John Stewart?

@the_stegman: yea i see hom being Ares. Dc still fears that a solo movie with a woman leading may not make a lot of money and everyone knows the rock is a popular money maker in hollywood so adding him as the main villian would make sense.

I think he'd make a great Teth Adam. The character is basically a "heel" from wrestling.

Martian Manhunter. He is big and intimidating like the current Martian Manhunter.

He also kind of looks like Simon Baz.

I heard that a Shazam movie was on the cards but its off now due to Man of Steel's success. Such a shame but the Rock would make a good Black Adam.

well I think he could pull off the physical aspects of Black Adam off (haven't seen many films with him in, so unfortuanatly my cinema knowledge of him runs along the lines of a bunch of Disney films and G.I.Joe retaliation... with retaliation being the highlight). He'd deffinantly have to be one of the more physically present characters, though if it turns out that they have a great director and creation crew in this hypothetical movie (which doesn't have the executives of time warner breathing down their back all the time) I wouldn't be surprised if they went a completely different rout and had had him play a character who doesn't have a strong physical presence on screen i.e. Dr. William Magnus.

I know it's a lot less likely, but I think he could do really well as a more obscure character.

He would make a really good Crazy Quilt.
