Confirmed : Dwayne Johnson in talks to play DC Superhero Lobo

Confirmed : Dwayne Johnson in talks to play DC Superhero Lobo

Dwayne Johnson’s been ice-skating around the Superhero movie rink for a while now. There was talk of him playing Sub-Mariner, some less-believable rumours of him once being up for Bryan Singer’s Superman, and some discussions about playing Black Adam in a ‘Shazam!’ movie at one stage. None of that came off, but seems the wrestler cum box-office dollars chaser hasn’t given up on his plight to be part of a credit block on a DC or Marvel comic movie poster.

Latest rumours had Johnson up for the role of ‘Lobo’ in the DC Comics flick of the same name.

Brad Peyton, who worked with Johnson on “Journey 2 : The Mysterious Island”, and prolific action-movie beard Joel Silver (“Lethal Weapon”, “Exit Wounds”), are involved in such a project. And seems you can now officially add Johnson’s name to the IMDB listing for the picture.

The actor took to Twitter to confirm that the rumours are true, he’s indeed in the mix to play Lobo.

“Rumors of me possibly playing LOBO are true. Joel Silver and Brad Peyton working on it now. That could be fun..”, The Rock – or whoever handles his twitter account – said.

Well, there goes the hope of seeing the big guy play She-Hulk, I guess?
