Rumor in the industry is that The Rock may be going for the role of John Stewart, one of the other Green Lanterns from Earth. Although The Rock will definitely bring a fun factor to the DC Cinematic Universe, I don’t think that John Stewart will be the role for him.

Although I may be biased due to my love of comics, it looks like the end of the year is offering quite a bit of comic related news. The latest kernel of news came from Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s year end chat with the fans.
The speculation of course is going to run wild considering that Warner is attempting their version of a Cinematic Universe starring the DC characters that they own. With the highly anticipated Batman vs. Superman already in production, what other additional characters can we see The Rock bring to life? Gal Gadot was just confirmed as Wonder Woman. Can we possibly see The Rock as Martian Manhunter? If Warner Brothers is attempting to finally create the long desired Justice League movie, he would definitely be the actor to add a sort of credibility to a role that isn’t as established as the others. You can liken the same tactic to how RDJ was casted as Iron Man, which propelled that character to the frontline of Marvel’s most popular characters.
2014 is going to be an interesting year for comic book movies.
