ROCK TEASES WITH MARVEL CHARACTER HE WANTS TO PLAY, DISCUSSES DEALING WITH A SWOLLEN PENIS (YES - OUCH! - REALLY) AND MORE

By Mike Johnson on 2013-05-20 10:21:20
Dwayne Johnson's latest film "Fast & Furious 6" will be released this week theatrically.  It's gotten some really good buzz as a fast paced action flick.   In the film, MMA icon Gina Carano is Johnson's partner. It was released last week in Great Britain and Ireland and was the biggest three day take for any Universal picture in history when it opened.

Johnson teased on Twitter that he wanted to play Luke Cage aka Power Man in an upcoming Marvel Studios film, the same character I suggested he would be right for last week.  Let's hope it happens, I'd love to see a film version of Heroes For Hire, especially if they keep it in its early roots as the heroes who anyone can come find and ask for help from.  Anyone have any Iron Fist casting suggestions?  Maybe Ray Park?

Johnson also noted that in the wake of his Wrestlemania injuries, one of the side effects was indeed a swollen penis. If he had a swollen penis because of his love for the game, anyone who ever buries him again in the WWE locker room is absolutely insane. 

As of this past weekend, Johnson's films this year had made:

G.I. Joe: Retaliation: $120,467,000
Pain and Gain: $46,574,000
Snitch: $42,828,000
