Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson is one heck of a guy. Starting out as a wrestler, He quickly rose to fame with his witty sarcasm inside the ring. Next thing we know he is trying his hand in Hollywood and quickly rose to fame with his acting chops. He I now the biggest action star of H-Town. And now the Rock has something to say that will make you flinch- The Rock claims he can beat all of the Avengers’ asses.
Is it arrogance speaking? We think not.
Now before the Marvel fanboys start shouting and hollering at The Rock, hear the rest of the news first. Dwyne Johnson is promoting his movie Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle via video promotion. The movie involves a story where people are pulled into a game where they will have to fight for survival. When asked if The Rock is trapped in the game, which celebrities would he like to pull inside the game to kick their asses, he had this to say:
“Here’s the thing: It’s not just one celebrity I’d pull in. No, no, no, no. I will pull them all in. The all who I’m talking about is The Avengers. I’d pull all of them in. All of them need their ass kicked! ‘Cause it’s DC, baby! That’s how we roll. Black Adam!”
Of course The Rock won’t be fighting as himself. The DCEU is casting the Rock as Back Adam, DC Comics’ premium anti-hero. It is as Black Adam The Rock intends to carry out his evil plan.
Quit your whining fellas, The Rock bears no ill intention to his Marvel co-stars. It is just his way of promoting his movies. Inside the ring or outside it, The Rock is the bet when it comes to the art of the Taunt. The Rock is not serious. He is in fact kidding. Now that he has your attention, hold your horses and watch Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle 😉
Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle releases on December 20, 2017.
