In case you missed it, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson had a really good year in 2013, landing the top-grossing actor spot to the tune of $1.3 billion in box office receipts.  So it goes without saying that major motion picture studios would like to welcome Johnson into the fold for their tentpole projects going forward.  One of those studios just happens to be Warner Bros., which just so happens to have a partnership with DC Comics (you may have heard about Man of Steel and its highly anticipated sequel).  Johnson recently teased his Twitter followers about a meeting with WB’s CEO regarding a DC property.  Hit the jump to find out more, including his comments on his other upcoming films.

dwayne-johnson-warner-bros-dcHere’s what Johnson had to say about WB and DC:

Dwayne Johnson ‏@TheRock We just had a big meeting w/ Warner Bros CEO re: @DCComics 2014 we will partner up and create the cool bad assery. #RockTalk

Not much in the way of details.  Knee-jerk reactions will probably have people screaming, “Lobo!” but “Johnson himself said the project “went away.”  That was a year ago, however, so perhaps things have changed.  It’s just not enough to even speculate on at this point, but feel free to do so in the comments.

He also went on to talk about his upcoming films:

Hawaii is my fav. Cool to announce my next film, SAN ANDREAS will be filmed in Brisbane, Australia. #April#AussieLove#RockTalk
I’ll clarify. SAN ANDREAS (my next movie shooting in April) is the first ever big 3D earthquake disaster film. #RockTalk
Im cautiously excited to start shooting NOT WITHOUT HOPE. To tell this story and become this man is truly an honor. #RockTalk

New Line has set an April start for San Andreas.  Relativity’s Not Without Hope is based on the Nick Schuyler book recountimg a 2009 fishing trip he took with four of his friends (including NFL players Marquis Cooper and Corey Smith) in the Gulf of Mexico that turned disastrous when their boat capsized, stranding them at sea.
