Pain & Gain(and Bay) in April
Fast 6 in May

High hopes for him. However if they all flop, sheesh.
The thing with The Rock is that he needs a star vehicle to build a franchise to really get into the action groove of old veterans like Stallone with Rambo/Rocky and Schwarzenegger with Terminator.

Dwayne Johnson is a likable and charismatic guy but this new Hercules thing ain't gonna pan out unless of course it's Marvel's verson of Herc introduced in The Avengers films.

A few of the Marvel Superheroes are somewhat niche characters that aren't extremely versatile, thus they don't have a lot of longevity potential. For example, Namor is a water guy, Silver Surfer is a space guy, Dr. Strange is a magic guy, and so on.
