The Rock Shows Interest in Playing Luke Cage

The Rock Shows Interest in Playing Luke Cage

A casting choice from fanboy heaven.

Kevin Feige was talking about Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson the other day in an interview and the great one has heard.

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.

 

 

Marvel is known to be stingy with the money and the Rock is an expensive actor these days, but he has a long standing working relationship with Disney and I think is a great fit for the role.  Money issues aside, what do you think of the casting possibilities here?

About the Author - Jeremy Shane


Jeremy was born in a small mountain village of a strange foreign land called Weystvurginea.  Banishment for liberal views saw him spend years wondering the east coast until he decided to bike to California.  When he saw how long a trip it was, he drove instead.  Now he's living it up in a low humidity climate, sometimes working on his photography and when not, he writes for us covering books (by way of his blog: Reading Realms), gaming, tv, movies, comics, conventions in the SoCal area, and creates a weekly webcomic: A Journey Through Skyrim.  If you look for him offline, start in the L.A. area; online start at: www.jeremyshane.info for his profile and all the social networks he's on... or just follow him on twitter, he seems to be on there a lot: @jeremyshane.
