Marvel boss backs The Rock for superhero role

Kevin Feige wants DWAYNE ‘THE ROCK’ JOHNSON in a Marvel movie.

The Marvel Studios president – whose production credits include ‘The Avengers’ and ‘Iron Man’ – thinks the ‘G.I. Joe: Retaliation’ actor is an ”unbelievable force of nature” and would be well suited for a superhero movie.

He told Collider.com: ”His name has come up in the past. I’m a gigantic fan of his. I think he’s incredible. I might have met him once a long time ago, but I haven’t really met him. I don’t really know him, but I think he’s an unbelievable personality and an unbelievable sort of force of nature.

”He’s awesome in ‘Pain & Gain’. He was great in ‘G.I. Joe’. He’s really kind of an amazing human being. His Twitter’s always cool and he promotes the hell out of everything he does. I would love him to be part of the Marvel universe somewhere, someday.”

The studio boss also said it is a ”priority” for Marvel to introduce more strong female characters in its movies to go along with Scarlett Johansson’s femme fatale character, Black Widow.

He said: ”Even if you look at ‘Avengers’, if you look at ‘Iron Man 3′ and ‘Captain America: Winter Soldier’ – that we have in production right now – all have strong female characters; stronger than I think people even would’ve guessed. It’s a priority for us because we have an enormous amount of incredibly strong female characters in comics.”

    Um, you want to bring in new heroes to the Avengers franchise here is your chance to bring in a lesser known hero with a big name.

    Luke Cage has Rock written all over him.

    They could do a Luke Cage solo movie OR have him and Iron Fist in a movie and have a big name actor play Fist as well.

    I would love to see Rock as Cage.
