Re: Dwayne Johnson is Like Cage?
Marvel may not hire A-list actors, but they tend to hire people who are on their way up, who have A-list potential, and lock them into contracts at low prices. RDJ was on his way back up, as was Evans. Hemsworth was on his way up from obscurity and even Ruffalo is on was on his way up from the indie fare. They bill themselves to actors as providing opportunity to open doors with high profile characters. It's a bit brilliant, but still, they get A-list-potential who aren't actually A-list (yet).
I don't know if Terry Crews actually fits that bill... maybe he does, not sure.
