Recently during San Diego Comic Con the Russo brothers revealed that they would want Dwayne Johnson aka The Rock to play a lead in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He has already been roped for DC’s Extended Universe Black Adam and when asked from the Russo Brother’s what MCU characters would they want The Rock to play, they revealed something exciting. Any guesses, what could have been their answer?
It’s none other than a rock. Yes, they revealed that he would be a perfect fit for a rock. And now, The Rock has reacted to it and speaking with Comicbook.com he said, “I think I would have to, that’s the thing. And I appreciate the Russo Brothers. I’ve known those guys for a long time and I appreciate the compliment and we would have to see,” he said.
He further laughed and added, “So, basically what they’re saying is, is I don’t need a cape. Basically, what they said, I could be the leader of the Marvel universe. That’s my interpretation.”
Even before this, Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, has reacted multiple times to Russo brothers’ statements and said. The Russo brothers said, “The superhero that I would most like The Rock to play is The Rock. He is the best version of him,” Johnson took to Twitter and shared his reaction. “I was born to play this role. Literally. I’ll call you tonight Russo Bros!!! Time to rule the MCU.. forever,” he tweeted.
