The Rock wants to be James Bond.
Dwayne Johnson has been a part of many top franchises throughout his Hollywood career, such as the Fast and the Furious franchise, and recently, he joined the DC Comics Extended Universe as Black Adam.
The Rock, while being known for being a third-generation wrestler, also followed in his family's footsteps on the big screen as his grandfather, High Chief Peter Maivia, was a villain in the Sean Connery James Bond film, You Only Live Twice.
In a new Q&A with Esquire, Johnson revealed that he wants to follow in his grandfather's footsteps yet again but he doesn't want to be a Bond villain, he wants to be James Bond himself.
"Yes, my grandfather was a Bond villain in You Only Live Twice with Sean Connery. Very, very cool. I would like to follow in his footsteps and be the next Bond. I don't want to be a villain. Gotta be Bond."
One person who was in the running for James Bond before Daniel Craig took over the role was Henry Cavill. Ultimately, Cavill would go on to play Superman and the Rock says he would like to try his hardest to get his Black Adam character to fight Henry Cavill as Superman.
"I would love for that to happen. I've always been a big proponent of that, especially considering Black Adam can kick the shit out of Superman's, I think fans can anticipate it I will continue to do the most that we can to try and make that happen. I think you know what's interesting about Black Adam is he has the speed of Superman. He flies like Superman. He has the powers of Superman, you know, Superman, his greatest weakness. A lot of people think it's kryptonite. Kryptonite is very powerful, but Superman's greatest weakness is actually magic and Black Adam is blessed with magic. All superheroes, they have a code of ethics that they live by. Superman won't kill anyone. But in Black Adam's world If you harm, his people or his family, or him, you die. "
The Rock will also be on-screen with the former James Bond, Pierce Brosnan, who will have a role in the Black Adam movie. Learn more here.
