The Rock Set for DC Movie Role?
Dwayne Johnson confirms involvement in new DC flick, but won't go into specifics...

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, has spoken to reporters about his involvement in a brand new, unannounced DC super hero adaptation, however the actor wasn't willing to go into any details about the specifics of the role, nor would he say which character he would be playing.

At a roundtable with a select group of journalists, reported by comingsoon.net, the actor gave a few hints as to the character in question...

Like everyone here in the room, I love superheroes, and we've been having ongoing discussions, myself and DC, for years about the right character. "What would the right character be? And that's another thing, too. It just had to be right. I won't tell you who it is, but I'll tell you the three qualities we're looking for and I'll let you guys figure it out, This is going to be fun. Here are the three qualities...

The first quality we were looking for is that he had to be extremely complex and have a lot going on and what that does for me as an actor and for the studio, just gives us space that we can explore his complexities. The other quality is that the character we were looking for had to be well known but never brought to life. That does, again as an actor, is that it gives me a little bit of space and it just gives me a chance to put an imprint into his personality with the set of tools that I can 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 that he had to be a badass mother***ker and on a Superman level of power where he could throw down.

In those three qualities, I'm happy we've found that character and right now we're out to a lot of writers.

Feel free to draw your own conclusions, folks! It's got to be someone that hasn't been in a movie yet, is very complex, and is a bad-ass. Any ideas?
