the-rockDwayne “The Rock” Johnson has his fans in a grip of mystery about he will be up to in 2014. The rumor mills are abuzz with plans of his collaboration with DC Comics to work on projects that he promises will result in “cool bad assery.”

In his final update for 2013 he Tweeted his followers:

We just had a big meeting w/ Warner Bros CEO re:@DCComics 2014 we will partner up and create the cool bad assery. #RockTalk @ActionTilson

Now, while the Tweet gives no clues whatsoever about what the project might be, there are some sure bets. Here are a few of them:

“Man of Steel” – The Sequel

2015 will see the return of Superman. This time he won’t be alone: he will be a part of the Justice League. Ben Affleck has taken to Batman and Wonder Woman will be played by Gal Gadot. The Flash and The Green Lantern are up for grabs. So, maybe The Rock will bite?


Although DC Comics has, for the time being at least, shelved “Shazam” due to the huge success of “Man of Steel”, perhaps they might bring it back into play now that they have The Rock.

“Shazam” is a story about Billy Batson, an everyday kid who magically transforms into Captain Marvel. One of his famous nemeses is Black Adam – a role that will definitely fit The Rock.


This is the story of the cigar smoking, space-bike-riding, alien bounty hunter of the DC Universe. In 2012, filmmaker Brad Peyton was handed the reins to the project. The candidate for the main character was none other than The Rock.

However, the project was abandoned and nothing came out of it. Who knows? It could be back on track again.

But, whatever may be, the 41-year-old actor will soon be able to wow us after the wrap up on the set of “Fast and Furious 7.”

The movie production was recently restarted after a hiatus following the death of actor Paul Walker.
