Earlier this week, Marvel big cheese Kevin Feige spoke of his admiration for Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson. Feige even went as far as to say that he’d love to work with The Great One somewhere down the line, and that the former WWE Champion would be a great addition to the Marvel family. Well, The Rock has taken to Twitter to stir up the rumour mill.
Johnson tweeted, “Thank U @Marvel President Kevin Feige for the nod. I’ll be ready. #RockAsCage #HeroForHire”
The People’s Champion also accompanied his tweet with the image that you see at the top of this post, showing Luke Cage, aka Powerman, and The Rock.
Talk of a Luke Cage film, or even an appearance from the character, have been doing the rounds for years now. That said, Marvel wants to work with Johnson, Johnson wants to work with Marvel, and he’s made his intentions pretty clear that he’s wanting the role of Luke Cage should it come up. With Feige and Joss Whedon both saying that they’ll be looking at bringing new Marvel characters into future films, it looks like Johnson may just get his wish.
