The Rock in an interview on CBR and perhaps playing a DC character.

“The third thing – and most important – is he had to be a badass motherfucker, OK, and on a Superman level of power, where [he] could throw down. In those three qualities, I’m happy we’ve found that character.”

Please, please, Santa Clause, let it be Black Adam.

He certainly looks like Black Adam, but does he have the acting chops to play that arrogant and tragic semi-heroic figure?

Yes. He's perfect for Black Adam. Personally I think Johnson would be great as either Lobo or Black Adam, or even John Stewart.

The article I read said he's playing Lobo.

Yeah, he's certainly hinted at that and he was of course attached at one time, I wouldn't be surprised if that turned out to be the role.

A lot of the stuff I've seen keeps talking about John Stewart for Dwayne Johnson, but I could see Lobo or Black Adam working for him too.

I am getting caught up on my Aquaman reading and have this pressing question.

Surely that depends on how Forever Evil concludes?

Re: DC's New 52: Reviews and Discussion (Spoilers welcolme and likely)

We've not seen Arthur during the entirety of Forever Evil thus far and Manta has had his trident...I believe he gets his trident IIRC when he wakes up...so yeah my assumption that he wakes up after Forever Evil.

Forever Evil #7 has been pushed back a couple of times now...so I'm guessing that DC is timing it to release it with something else.

Re: DC's New 52: Reviews and Discussion (Spoilers welcolme and likely)

I'm guessing it's because Finch never heard of this thing called deadlines or meeting them

I pray he doesn't draw WW, it'll be delayed more than Heinberg's relaunch and that took a year for Heinberg to write 5 normal sized issues!

Re: DC's New 52: Reviews and Discussion (Spoilers welcolme and likely)

Finch is drawing WW and his wife is writing...it'll be interesting to see if the book gets out of it's first arc without any delays or if that hurts it's sales. I'm really not sure why editorial gave them something as high profile as Wonder Woman. Surely there were other options?

You know that they are both going to take turns dressing up in the same Wonder Woman costume to inspire story ideas for the other?

What are the guidelines for actual spoilers in this thread?

I love the Johns run on Aquaman, but this seems like a pretty big gap to me--so much so that I am having visions of Countdowns "lead in" to Final Crisis.

Rich confirm those folks who are making the move to Burbank and those who have jumped to Marvel and stayed in New York. Apparently more there are more changes to come.

We are rid of Matt Idelson for better or for worse.

Too bad about Doyle. That might mess up the Batbooks. The new Detective Comics was amazing visually. Both Action and Detective hit it out of the park for once this week.
