    if thats true, I guess The Rock starts the new GL franchise

    he's a moneymaker, so it works in that sense.

    The Rock as Jon Stewart? Don't tell me he was the best actor for the part and they couldn't find a black guy?

    Well many have already speculated that he is up for John Stewart so I'd put that one down as a fan casting rumour rather than anything concrete.

    And he is the savior of franchises. And the highest earning movie star of last year so it makes sense. He could fit the role nicely, though he isn't my first choice.

    Called it.


    Honestly, he's the best choice alongside Idris Elba.


    Though, I think Elba is better suited for John Jones aka Martian Manhunter.

    Aw, yeah! Hollywood's finally giving us the biopic on Jon Stewart and the creation of The Daily Show. It's going to be the next Social Network!

    Agreed.
    My guess is that is a much more physical role, whatever it is .

    imagine these casting decisions 10 years ago?

    "Ben Affleck as Batman?!!?! The wrestler guy as green Lantern?!?! What next, is Michael Bay directing?"

    The other thing to keep in mind is that WB is playing the misinformation game, not disregarding the possibility, but the rumor could also be amusingly far from the truth.

    I'd be okay with Johnson as Stewart.

    The Rock is Black.

    He just happens to be Samoan as well.

    Even if he is up for John Stewart and even lands the role, I don't think it's going to be for BVS.

    CBM posted this rumor and also pointed out that in April, someone on Twitter suggested Dwayne for John Stewart in a DC movie, and he responded "Funny U should say that" on his Twitter account.

    However, this could have just been a hint from Dwayne that he was in talks for a DC project; not necessarily John Stewart.
