Dwayen The Rock Johnson

The signs all point to Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson having a starring role in an upcoming DC comic book movie, but what if the door was somehow open to him also joining one of Marvel’s franchises? It’s not completely far-fetched; Ryan Reynold played Green Lantern after starring in both Blade: Trinity and X-Men Origins: Wolverine after all.

It’s likely that whoever he does end up playing in the DC Cinematic Universe will mean multiple appearances and a non-compete clause in his contract, but there’s certainly no harm in speculating (especially as the actor has himself expressed interest in various Marvel characters in the past).

10. Namor

Namor

Like Quicksilver and The Scarlet Witch, Namor the Sub-Mariner is presumably a character who could potentially be used by both 20th Century Fox (the makers of the X-Men and Fantastic Four movies) and Marvel Studios. Convincingly portraying Namor’s kingly arrogance would prove to be a real challenge for Johnson, but what an incredible performance we could be in store for if he were given the right script and direction.

Namor is a character who has fought on both the side of good – with Captain America  during World War II – and bad – against the Fantastic Four – over the years, making him all the more complex and interesting of a character. This is a role which The Rock just looks right for, and his time in the WWE certainly showed that he has the right sort of swagger to breathe life into the King of Atlantis!
