The Rock as Black Adam, he's perfect for that role. As Lex, MAYBE it could work. It would depend on the writing. He's certainly charismatic and charming enough to play Lex, and also imposing. I think that Denzel fits Lex better.

I really hope this happens. The reactions would be great entertainment.

I'm still hoping for Phoenix or Denzel. I seriously hope The Rock is not Lex. The Rock as Black Adam would be perfect.

Lex likes cake. The Rock is a pie and cake lover coincidence?

I like Dwayne... Really... And I just can't/don't see WB/DC going in the direction the Rock would bring.

But there is a small part in the back of my mind that says Snyder might do this MIGHT.

There are 30+ characters who I would describe as a bad ass before I even think about Lex.

Why do people think he will be Lex?

Highly doubt they're gonna cast the Rock as Lex, I really think he'll be doing asolo Lobo movie. If I had my way though he'd be getting cast as Black Adam in a Shazam movie.

I think he'd be better as Captain Marvel himself. Sure, he looks much like Adam, but he does very well in the kind of light role that Shazam should be. He would also look more distinct from Superman than most potential actors.

For Me, it would be also because they want a physically active Lex involved in the action.
If you cast The Rock ,
Then the public KNOWS they are not getting Real Estate Lex.

What can Lex really do, physically? We know that this movie features Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman. If I were Lex, I would avoid fisticuffs.

Yeah... I hope that the next Lex is a guy who is in great shape and looks like he could kick some ass... but he shouldn't be gargantuan. He should (at most) MAYBE look like he could last a couple rounds with Batman but that's about it. The Rock is just TOO huge for a character like Lex and I don't see him debulking for any role.

The Rock is one of few actors that could really resurrect the Green Lantern character. That would be an AMAZING financial move for DC to secure him as John Stewart. Just amazing. He's perfect for a role like that.

Superman: Henry Cavill
Batman: Ben Affleck
Wonder Woman: Gal Gadot
Green Lantern: Dwayne Johnson
The Flash: Aaron Paul
Aquaman: Matthew McConaughey or Gerard Butler
