In a recent interview, Marvel big cheese Kevin Feige has talked of his admiration for a certain People’s Champion. That’s right, the studio are apparently very keen to work with Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson at some point.

Feige said, “His name has come up in the past. I’m a gigantic fan of his. I think he’s 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.”

In previous years, Johnson has been linked with various Marvel and DC characters, such as Lobo, the Sub-Mariner, Black Adam and Shazam.

At present, The Rock isn’t lined up for any Marvel pictures, although he could easily end up taking on a role in the Marvel cinematic universe in the coming years.
