Back in July, Vin Diesel took to social media to tease that he had met with Marvel Studios about a mystery role, later revealed to be that of Groot in James Gunn’s upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy. Today, his Fast & Furious franchise co-star Dwayne Johnson is doing the same for the Distinguished Competition, announcing to his fans via his annual end-of-year Twitter “Rock Talk” that he has just had a studio meeting regarding an unidentified DC Comics property.
“We just had a big meeting w/ Warner Bros CEO re: @DCComics 2014,” Johnson responded to a fan asking if he’d ever play a comic book character. “[W]e will partner up and create the cool bad assert.”
This isn’t the first time that Johnson has been linked to a DC film. His name was previously tied to the Black Adam role in director Peter Segal’s now defunct Billy Batson and the Legend of Shazam! and, last year, he revealed that might headline an also-now-defunct Lobo feature film.
Could either of those projects be back on track or is Johnson planning something altogether different? As it stands, the only DC Comics feature currently announced to shoot in 2014 is Zack Snyder’s Batman vs. Superman and it’s equally possible that Johnson might appear in that film in some capacity.
