DEADLINE: Las Vegas-  Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson told journalists Monday that he was in talks with DC to bring one of their characters to the movie screen.

biffrockThe Rock would not name the character but said he was listed three qualities the character had:

1–He is complex and has a lot going on

2–He has never been portrayed on-screen before

3–He is a badass, feared by all.

So, the identity of this DC figure is obvious to THIS Reporter. A lot going on, never seen on screen, and a bad-ass…
