The Rock As Marvel Hero Luke Cage? It Could Happen.


Wrestler turned actor Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is already a superhero to millions of WWE fans. Marvel may soon make Johnson an official part of its universe. Earlier this week, Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige noted Marvel would consider building a feature film around the action hero.

“His name has come up in the past. I`m a gigantic fan of his. I think he`s incredible. nature…I would love him to be part of the Marvel universe somewhere, someday,” Feige said.

When the word reached ‘The Rock’ this week, Johnson tweeted out a picture of himself conceptualized as the Cage character, and it quickly went viral. It’s an almost perfect fit:


In the past, Johnson tweeted interest in the Cage character, saying: “I would love to play Luke Cage. Love that superhero. I’d crush it.” Given the number of retweets and favorites already given to the conceptualization of The Rock as Cage, this project is almost certain to get a serious look from Marvel.
