A couple of days ago Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson hit Twitter to hint that he may be involved in an upcoming superhero movie; that wet the undies of the comic-book fanboys.

The “Fast Five” star has been linked to numerous superhero movies over the years – including a Captain Marvel movie, another on Sub-Mariner, and, if I recall correctly, his name was amusingly being tossed about for Superman at one stage – but has nothing has ever worked out.

Still, it’s pretty much a given that the chiseled former wrestler will get to play a comic book hero sometime.

Might that time be fastly approaching?

Here’s what Johnson wrote on his Twitter a couple of days back :

Funny U say that.. RT: @krystal_burt:@ron2smoove I could see Rock playing in DC movies. Gravedigger or John Stewart (JL’s Green Lantern)

Now here’s what our friends at Bleeding Cool reported earlier today :

“Bleeding Cool was told recently that The Rock is going to play Lobo in Brad Peyton´s upcoming film of the DC comics. An untested, unknown source opened up correspondance with us, and told us a tale of “a Hollywood party” at which Mr. Rock was a guest, and told some fellow partiers that he was going to take the Lobo role.”

Considering “Lobo” will be directed by Brad Peyton, who worked with Johnson on “Journey 2 : The Mysterious Island”, there’s a fairly good chance this scoop is on the money. Or, in the very least, that Johnson’s name has come up.
While the site, and anyone else interested in the going’s on of moviedom, search for some further evidence, what do you think of that – Rock as Lobo?
