Come 2014, many people will want to know what DC Entertainment, Warner Bros and The Rock are collectively cooking.
Answering fan questions on Twitter, Dwayne Johnson revealed that he and Warner Bros. will be teaming up at some point in 2014 to “create the cool bad assert.” Whether this means that Johnson is throwing his hat in the ring to join the ever-growing cast of the follow-up to this summer’s Man of Steel, or teasing some all-new project, remains to be seen, but as a bid to create some interest for DC’s 2014 announcements, it’s an impressively strong end-of-year effort.

Johnson has, in the past, been linked to the role of Black Adam, a villain in the proposed but apparently stalled Shazam movie. I wonder if Johnson could make for a convincing, if unlikely, Lex Luthor … ?
