Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has long been rumored for a role in the upcoming “Man of Steel 2,” with some suggesting the “Hercules” star could be playing John Stewart, the alter ego of the Green Lantern.
In a recent interview with Comic Book Resources about “Hercules,” the 41-year-old did not shy away from questions about his DC character, offering up this response:
“So, you know, there’s been mutual interest with myself and DC for many years to find the right character,” Johnson said. “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, myself and DC, for years about the right character, what the right character would be. That’s another thing, too: It had to be right.”
