The DCU Gets a Piece of the Rock

Looks like the cinematic DCU is going to get a piece of the rock. By rock, I mean Dwayne Johnson aka “The Rock.” The former WWE Champion, Fast and Furious star and upcoming son of Zeus confirmed a meeting with Warner Bros via his Twitter account.

Does this mean another addition to the cast of Batman vs. Superman that already includes Henry Cavil (Superman), Ben Affleck (Batman) and Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman). Could this be for another DC property? Johnson has been connected over the past several years to both Black Adam in a Shazam film as well as Lobo. The twitter post definitely seems to infer a villain role. Let the speculation begin what role he will play.
Rumors are already mentioning Lex Luthor, Doomsday, Bizarro and Darkseid.
Answers to this and other questions surrounding one of the most anticipated movies of the past decade should be answered soon.
Pre-production is under way and principal shooting is set to begin in February of 2014.
Batman vs. Superman (Man of Steel 2) will be directed by Zack Snyder, based on a screenplay by David Goyer, releases in July of 2015.

Carlos Cabaleiro

Carlos Cabaleiro illustrator+designer+storyteller I grew up just outside of New York. The eldest of three talented siblings; fascinated by my imagination and superheroes. Relocated to Florida and attended Miami International School of Art and Design. Worked as a freelance graphic designer to pay the bills. Somewhere along the way, I ended up taking a detour and now I'm back to making a living from my talent. Back and better than ever, I'm making my way in the world armed with my imagination, skill, talent, determination and the love and support of my fiancee, Kristina, and my family and friends. I now reside in Central Florida and share my studio with my sidekick, Grayson the dog wonder (he doesn't draw but he likes to keep me company). I am influenced by Bruce Timm, Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez, Michael Golden, Egon Schiele, Leonardo D'vinci, Alex Ross, Wally Wood, Carl Banks and Don Newton. I focus primarily on illustration dealing with all things fandom, with a strong focus on sequential storytelling (storyboards, comics). I've worked for clients such as Ocean Drive magazine, Bacardi advertising and High Impact Comics. A HUGE Batman fan. I get excited for DC Comics, anything by Bruce Timm and Paul Dini, James Robinson, FX's Justified and really cool action figures. I love to read and mostly lean towards fantasy or classics. Some favorites are: Dresden Files series by Jim Butcher, Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde, anything by Edgar Allan Poe, Raylan Givens short stories by Elmore Leonard and my all-time favorite, Dracula by Bram Stoker.
