Surely I can't be the only one who views The Rock coming on board as a huge positive?

I'm not saying he's an Oscar-calibre actor, but I don't see why he necessarily needs to be depending on who he is playing. My gut feeling is that he's Cyborg and I'm A-OK with that. Johnson has a MASSIVE amount of charisma, great comedic timing, great screen presence and is very good at doing what he does - and it's exactly what he says in his tweet - being a total badass. He's also a box office draw card.

The rumoured cast of this movie is:

Henry Cavill
Ben Affleck
Amy Adams
Joaquin Phoenix
Dianne Lane
Laurence Fishburne
Gal Gadot
Dwayne Johnson
Jason Mamoa

It's to be written by Oscar winning writer Chris Terrio, and to be directed by Zack Snyder who (all things being equal) did a great job on Man of Steel. The story is by David Goyer - who wrote the stories for Batman Begins, The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises.

Some people just want this movie to fail, rather than looking at the objective facts. This project, at face value, looks awesome.
