Marvel has expressed interest in working with Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. The Rock has expressed interest in playing Luke Cage for Marvel. Seemingly, there's nothing preventing this match made in superhero heaven from happening...except perhaps the fans. Would you want to see The Rock tackle Luke Cage?
A few days ago, Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige put it out there that Marvel is intrigued by the prospect of crafting a superhero film around The Rock. While Feige did not state plainly which character he'd want The Rock to inhabit, The Rock himself has made it clear that he's got eyes on Luke Cage, saying a year ago: "I would love to play Luke Cage. Love that superhero. I'd crush it."
Then came this on Friday: via his Twitter account, The Rock made his boldest bid for the job yet, launching a "viral campaign":
Thank U @marvel President Kevin Feige for the nod. I'll be ready. #RockAsCage #HeroForHire bit.ly/11EJTft
