Dwayne Johnson is set to take the DC universe by storm when Black Adam launches in 2022, but fans can't help but wonder if he'd ever consider double-dipping and taking on a role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe at some point.
As it turns out, he would! Hiram Garcia, president of production at Johnson's studio Seven Bucks, explained in a recent interview with Collider that the Black Adam star has met with Marvel a few times - although nothing has come of it... just yet.
Take a look at Black Adam in action below:
"DJ and Kevin [Feige] have a great relationship and we've flirted around a few ideas before, but nothing serious," Garcia revealed. "There's a mutual admiration for what we each have been doing and what Kevin has built over there is truly incredible.
"Ultimately though for us, we've always been very committed to what we wanted to build with Black Adam. Black Adam was the character we wanted to bring to life and who we felt DJ was destined to play. Once we set our sites on this character over a decade ago it was hard to imagine DJ plaging anyone else."
As for who Johnson could play in the MCU? I reckon there are lots of options. I suppose the most obvious choice would be to cast the former WWE star as a muscle-bound hero like Colossus from the X-Men, or The Thing from the Fantastic Four. But if you'll allow me to get a little weirder, I think Johnson would actually be great as Namor, the imposing and not always entirely heroic ruler of Atlantis.
If we're set on casting him as a villain? He could definitely lend his voice to a cosmic threat like Galactus. I could also totally see him as Apocalypse now that X-Men are back in the mix. For now, it's important to note that any conversations Johnson may have had are just conversations. After all, he's got Black Adam to focus on.
