While Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson contends he’s not been in the running for the new role of Superman, he has joked that he’d be perfect for the role – since he’s friends with the movie’s director Zack Snyder.
“I love Zack Snyder, I’m a big fan of his,” the action star explained at the Hollywood premiere of his new movie Faster. “We’re buddies and I don’t believe (the rumours) to be true. But I would make a great Superman!”
In the star’s latest action role, he plays a pumped-up newly-released prisoner who’s out to avenge his brother’s murder. Johnson said the film was both physically and emotionally draining, adding, “The emotion… I didn’t have a lot of words but you’re still carrying everything internally,” he said.
Johnson was at the premiere of Faster in Los Angeles, joined by Carla Gugino, Billy Bob Thornton, Dolph Lundgren and even more people you probably never heard of. Yeah, Superman? Keep dreaming if this is the quality of celebrity friends you keep.
