Steve is currently at CinemaCon, which is a convention where studios push their upcoming films by showing promo materials, new footage, and providing interviews with the stars. Paramount is promoting Hercules, so Dwayne Johnson was on hand to talk about the movie as well as some of his other projects.
During a group interview, Johnson talked more about the DC character he’d like to play, and while he wouldn’t say who, he did provide some clues. Johnson said the character has never been on screen before, and combined with his other clues, likely candidates include Black Adam (the nemesis of the superhero Shazam) and Lobo (an a biker-style alien anti-hero who works as a bounty hunter/mercenary). However, Johnson also notes that they’re still looking for a writer, so don’t expect this one any time soon. Hit the jump for Dwayne Johnson’s full quotes, and sound off in the comments for who you think he’s talking about and/or a DC character you’d like to see him play.
