Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is without doubt one of the greatest stars on this planet, so it is fairly loopy that he’s not but headlined a serious superhero film. The Rock’s title has been nominated for numerous DC and/or Marvel roles for years, and he’s been circling the DC Films universe, having been forged as Shazam’s nemesis Black Adam in a venture that’s nonetheless taking form.
However, Marvel followers are simply sitting round ready for DC to make a transfer with Johnson – they’ve their very own concepts for the way The Rock may match into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. For occasion, fan artist BossLogic needs to see The Rock play the Marvel hero that is product of Rocks – particularly Thing from The Fantastic Four!

“I did a little THING with @TheRock 😁#fantasticfour wanted to turn the rock into rocks”–@BossLogic
BossLogic freely admits that he did this one “for the puns” somewhat than as a significant piece of idea artwork, which, admittedly, reveals. Given the extent of artwork BossLogic has created up to now, this photoshop-lite job with the rocks over the Rock’s face needs to be taken with a grain of salt (mineral joke).
That stated, the idea is not all dangerous: This model of the factor could be an attention-grabbing change for live-action. The hero is often depicted as being a stocky meatball-shaped rock man, however an actor like Dwayne Johnson offers a distinct physique kind to the character, with a big higher physique sat atop a thinner waist and legs. It makes The Thing look extra “real” when it comes to being a rock-covered human with weightlifter’s physique, however provides Marvel followers sufficient originality with Thing’s Marvel Cinematic Universe look to maintain it attention-grabbing to the attention.
However, ultimately the most important downside right here could also be followers’ objection to having The Rock play Ben Grimm, who is meant to be a blue-eyed Brooklyn boy, with all of the NYC accent and swagger that goes together with that persona. In brief: not fairly an element followers wish to see The Rock play; and doubtless not the excessive value Marvel needs to pay for getting Johnson in an already-expensive Fantastic Four film.
