On Monday evening, the MTV Film & TV Awards happened. Avengers: Endgame was the massive winner, after all, accumulating gongs for Greatest Film, Greatest Hero for Robert Downey Jr.’s Tony Stark and Greatest Villain for Josh Brolin’s Thanos. Director Anthony Russo was available to choose up the Greatest Film award, but additionally attending was Dwayne Johnson, accumulating this yr’s Technology Icon award.
Regardless of him possessing essentially the most classically superhero-esque physique within the enterprise, the actor’s by no means performed a Marvel or DC character earlier than (although he’s come shut just a few instances). His proximity prompted a query for Russo although about which hero he thought Johnson ought to sort out, and his reply was wonderful:
“The superhero that I might most like The Rock to play is The Rock. He’s the perfect model of him.”
You realize what? He completely is. Why trouble having Johnson fake to be some current hero when there’s no purpose he couldn’t stand shoulder-to-shoulder with the prevailing heroes as himself? In any case, if our world was threatened by some evil intergalactic menace and we would have liked to ship one very particular particular person to do battle with it, we may do a hell of lots worse than Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, proper?
For his half, the actor was positively tickled pink by the thought, taking to Twitter to say:
I used to be born to play this position. Actually.
I’ll name you tonight Russo Bros!!!
Time to rule the MCU.. without end. 😉💪🏾 https://t.co/gXPZa73VDU

If the celebrities align, we may truly see Johnson lastly moving into the superhero world pretty quickly. He’s lengthy been signed as much as play Shazam’s nemesis Black Adam and anybody even remotely conversant in the comedian guide character will know that there’s actually nobody on Earth extra good for the position than Dwayne. If you happen to can’t wait that lengthy although, this summer season’s Quick and Livid spinoff Hobbs & Shaw seems to be like a superhero film in all however title.
Nonetheless, what I wouldn’t give to see the Avengers assemble as soon as extra with The Rock standing of their ranks, eyebrow cocked and able to rock.
