The Rock Says That He and DC Have Agreed on Which Comics Character He Should Play

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has been rumored to play more superheroes or comic book characters at this point than Wonder Woman has confirmed theatrical film appearances, but he says that he’s finally picked one. He also can’t tell us who yet, but he can give us some deliberately vague hints.


Fact From the Vapor of Nuance

Dang, The Rock Can’t Even Joke About Which Superhero Could Beat Who Without Being Asked If He’s Green Lantern

You may be hearing that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is up for the role of John Stewart, Green Lantern of Earth. I am here to tell you that he’s really very probably not.

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson Tweets About Meeting With Warner Bros., Takes Me Back To 2001

It seems to be par for the course these days. Celebrities tweeting about how they’ve been having meetings about this or that role for XYZ blockbuster. But on New Year’s Eve, Dwayne Johnson got me to sit up and pay attention. He told the world he’d bet with Warner Bros. about a DC Comics project.

The New Terminator Film Will Actually Be a Reboot Trilogy

News on the upcoming Terminator movie has been vague up to now. We’ve known that siblings David and Megan Ellison are producing, that it has some writers, that it may or may not be a reboot, that Fast Five director Justin Lin was at one point attached but might not be now, and that Arnold Schwarzenegger would be back for it. Well, like the Terminator himself, the movie just keeps trucking along, and as such we now have some more concrete details.

Namely: A release date. It will be followed by two other Terminators. And, yes, it is a reboot.

New Super Bowl Milk Commercial Has The Rock Auditioning For Generic Movie Hero

I’ve had a fondness for Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson since his WWF days (yes, I said WWF) and it’s interesting to see the path his career has taken him. He’s certainly made a name for himself with action roles but he also does family films now and then that show he’s not afraid to act a little silly. As is with this new “Got Milk” commercial set to air during the Super Bowl tomorrow in which he must consider his priorities. He’s got two more action films on deck currently, Snitch and G.I. Joe: Retaliation, which was originally meant to come out last year.

We Know Halloween Is Over, But These Are Too Good Not to Share

Hurricane Sandy may have mucked up Halloween here in New York City (the Greenwich Village Halloween Parade was cancelled for the first time in its history. *single tear*), but that doesn’t mean people here and elsewhere didn’t still have fun. Here are some of our favorite costumes (and pumpkins!) from around the ‘net.

Things We Saw Today: Power Rangers Go Pop!

Funko has unveiled their latest Pop! figures (we were previously excited about the Game of Thrones collection) and it’s the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers! (via Comics Alliance)

Things We Saw Today: Disney’s Ariel As The 4th Doctor

The Doctor finally gets to be a ginger in this Little Mermaid/Doctor Who mash-up. Artist Lar deSouza even made Flounder into K-9 but made sure to put a stipulation on his tumblr post, “Don’t get excited for a series though. I’m exhausted just by the thought of doing a dozen more Princess Who’s!” Pretty please! With sugar on top! I’ve already done one FemmeDoctor cosplay group, I would totally do another in this vein.

David Tennant Is Rumored to Be Talking About Joining the Sixth Fast and Furious Movie, So We Will Enjoy This While It Lasts

Well, this is just delightful. Take this completely unsubstantiated story with a grain of salt, but rumor has it that the producers of the sixth movie in the Fast and Furious franchise, Fast Six — meaning that the seventh movie will be called F7, the eighth will just be 8 or F, and the ninth will turn to the Greek alphabet or be without a title entirely — have their sights set on the 10th Doctor himself, David Tennant, for a role in the Axe-scented car flick. But don’t get too excited — or furious! BWAAHAHAHAHA — because apparently, any talks or negotiations that have taken place are far from official. That will not stop us from finding it amazing, though.
