Dwayne Johnson alias “THE ROCK” sudah lama telah dikaitkan dengan rumor akan memerankan sebuah tokoh superheroes dalam project “BATMAN vs SUPERMAN” hanya saja, Warner Bros belum resmi mengumumkan karakternya siapa. Belum lama ini, Dwayne Johnson diwawancarai oleh Reporter CinemaCon mengenai rumor dia akan menjadi Green Lantern, berikut wawancaranya…
So let’s address the green elephant in the room. Are you going to be Green Lantern?
[Laughs] Okay, well since you asked. We’re all friends. So, you know, there’s been mutual interest with myself and DC for many years to find the right character. I, like everyone here in the room, love superheroes. So there’s been mutual interest with us for years, and we’ve been having ongoing discussions, myself and DC, for years about the right character, what the right character would be. That’s another thing, too: it had to be right.
It was going to be Black Adam for awhile, right?
Well, here’s the thing — so we’ve been having these ongoing discussions. I won’t tell you who it is, but I’ll tell you the three qualities we’re looking for, okay? This is going to be fun!
Does he wear a ring?
[Laughs] Can’t say that, but here we go. Here are three qualities. The first quality we were looking for was that he had to be extremely complex and have a lot going on. What that does for me as an actor and the studio is it gives us space that we can explore; his complexities. The other quality was that he had to — the character we were looking for had to be well-known but never brought to life. Then what that does again as an actor, it gives me a little bit of space, and we talked about personality. It just gives me a chance to put an imprint into his personality, with the set of tools that I could bring to the table and put a very unique twist on his personality, but still pay homage to who he is. The third thing — and most important — is he had to be a badass motherf***er, okay, and on a Superman level of power, where [he] could throw down. In those three qualities, I’m happy we’ve found that character. Right now, we’re out to a lot of writers.
Menarik bahwa kenyataannya dia tidak pernah “bukan” ketika ditanya apakah dia akan menjadi Green Lantern, kemungkinan besar karakternya akan dirilis pada event Comic-Con pada bulan Juli mendatang. Tidak lama setelah interview tersebut, Dwayne Johnson membuat “ROCK TALK” dimana dia melemparkan pertanyaan mengenai karakter superheroes di twitternya.
Apapun peranan “THE ROCK” nantinya, kemungkinan dia akan muncul di “BATMAN vs SUPERMAN” atau malah di film “JUSTICE LEAGUE” karena Warner Bros sedang berencana membuat universe yang saling berkaitan seperti yang MARVEL lakukan dengan “THE AVENGERS” … Jadi kira-kira siapa tokoh superheroes tebakan kalian? Ayo share disini!
