It looks like Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson will not only play the iconic Hercules, but he is hinting that he might be playing a DC character. Actually, not only has he dropped hints about it but, Dwayne Johnson confirmed that he will be playing a DC character!

Johnson has been teasing about a DC character that he would love to play and he is also hopeful to get a mystery comic-book project. The former pro wrestler has revealed some clues about this:

“There’s been mutual interest with myself and DC for many years to find the right character. I, like everyone here in the room, love superheroes. So there’s been mutual interest with us for years and we’ve been having ongoing discussions,” Johnson said in a group interview at CinemaCon which was published on Collider.

“The Rock” announced on his Twitter account that he is indeed, playing a DC character, a character that has never been played before:

“Myself & DC have agreed on a character.. extremely complex, well known (but never played) and a pure BAD ASS MF;” “The Rock” tweeted.

This is really not a shocker for “The Rock” fans because of his confirmation way back in January 2014 in which he posted a tweet during his annual end-of-year “Rock Talk.”

Some of the few names that have come up were Black Adam and Lobo, and these two characters seem to fit him perfectly but still, Johnson isn’t revealing anything… yet. However, he did say that he might be able to “reveal more at Comic-Con.”

The only DC Comics feature that was announced to shoot in 2014 was “Batman vs. Superman” by Zack Snyder… and it’s not impossible that Johnson might be included in it. Who knows? This is really interesting…

Now, the mystery lives… and we’re dying to find out which DC character it would be!

Currently, the former pro wrestler turned actor will star in “Hercules: The Thracian Wars” where he will play Hercules himself. The movie is set to hit theatres on July 25, 2014. The first trailer of “Hercules: The Thracian Wars” has been released.

What do you think? Which DC character would you like to Dwayne Johnson to play?
