Dwayne Johnson is stepping into the world of superpowered individuals with his movie Black Adam which is about to release. This man is one of the most famous and dependable lead actors in Hollywood. So why would anyone pass up the opportunity to work with him?
According to sources from the giantfreakinrobot, Kevin Feige is trying to get Dwayne Johnson on board with Marvel Studios. He is being pursued to play the ruthless villain Apocalypse in the MCU. Apocalypse has graced our screens before during X-Men: Apocalypse but the movie isn’t officially a part of the MCU. Marvel would essentially have a do-over with Dwayne Johnson as Apocalypse when they finally introduce X-Men and the other mutants to the MCU. However, this is not an easy task for Kevin Feige as Dwayne Johnson is entangled with Warner Brothers and the DCEU. In fact, there have even been rumors that Warner Bros. are planning on inviting Dwayne Johnson to be a consultant advisor. This would definitely pose a major conflict of interest.
En Sabah Nur more commonly known as Apocalypse was one of the earliest mutants. He was born thousands of years ago in Ancient Egypt. Due to his powers and long life he has even been worshipped as a God and he ruled using the Horsemen of Apocalypse. He has an extreme philosophy much like Magneto, except he takes it many steps further. By believing in the survival of the fittest, he wants to mercilessly eradicate the weak. He started off his life as a slave and ascended to the position of a conqueror and eventually a God. He is an immortal being and can never be killed.
His powers include superhuman strength, durability, speed and event teleportation. However, some of his most powerful abilities are that of telekinesis and telepathy. He can control and manipulate the thoughts of others in order to extract information. He can also manipulate energy and create force fields. Another interesting power of his is that he can morph his hands into various weapons and even transform his physical appearance.
Us fans would love to see Dwayne Johnson in the Marvel Universe and we sincerely hope this works out.
