Marvel Wants The Rock for a Future Superhero Movie…But Which One?

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has found his niche in the movie world and is milking it for all it’s worth. Aside from his recent stints in ‘G.I. Joe: Retaliation‘ and ‘Pain & Gain,’ we’re about to see him in ‘Fast and Furious 6,’ possibly a ‘Fast and Furious’ spinoff and the upcoming ‘Hercules.’ There’s no stopping this superstar and it looks like Marvel’s now eyeing him for future superhero movies.

Kevin Feige, Marvel Studios head, is a huge fan of The Rock — and so is mostly anyone who’s seen any of his films — and swooned over him during a massive interview with Collider last week. His response to possibly casting the action star in a superhero movie:

I think yeah, I mean his name has come up in the past.  I’m a gigantic fan of his, I think he’s an incredible – I might have met him once a long time ago, but I haven’t really met him.  I don’t really know him – but I think he’s an unbelievable personality and an unbelievable sort of force of nature.  He’s awesome in ’Pain & Gain,’ he was great in ’G.I. Joe,’ he’s really kind of an amazing human being. His Twitter’s always cool and he promotes the hell out of everything he does.  I would love him to be part of the Marvel universe somewhere, someday.

It seems like The Rock has tackled just about everything under the sun — and he’s even expressed interest in taking on ‘Star Wars: Episode 7‘ — so why wouldn’t he want to try his hand at one of the most lucrative movie genre’s of our time? But the question is, which superhero could he be?

As CBM pointed out, The Rock stated on his buzzing Twitter feed a while ago that he’d be interested in starring in a Luke Cage movie, which we’d love to see — even if perhaps the idea is only on our minds because of the recent Cage rumors circling Marvel’s ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.‘ What do you think? Is there a comic book hero out there that’d be perfect for Johnson?
