WWE News: The Rock is set to play world’s first super-hero

Arindam Paul / 02 June 2016

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is the biggest example of a pro-wrestler who made it the biggest after stepping his foot into the Hollywood. He had the most successful career both in WWE and in movies. The Rock has been a 10 time World champion whereas he stepped foot in the movies in the year 1999 with the movie “Beyond the mat.” Then, he went on to be part some of the biggest Hollywood franchise.

The Rock will next be seen in the Baywatch movie which also co-stars Bollywood superstar, Priyanka Chopra. In addition, the “People’s champion” has something huge in store. As per the reports of wrestlingINC.com, The Rock along with his Seven Bucks Productions company is working on a project and it will be oriented with Clark “Doc” Savage, world’s first superhero, a known face to the comic fans around the world. The Rock took his social media account to let us know about the news. The statement is as follows:
It’s OFFICIAL: For all comic book fans you already know the world’s first superhero (pre-dating Superman) is the “Man of Bronze” himself Clark “Doc” Savage.
Want to thank my bud director/writer Shane Black and his writing team Anthony Bagarozzi and Chuck Mondry for flying in from LA and sitting with me and our Seven Bucks Productions’s producer Hiram Garcia on this Memorial Day weekend to chop up creative and break story on this very cool project.
Comic book fans around the world know that the cool thing about “Doc” Savage is that he’s the inspiration for Superman. First name Clark, called “Man of Bronze”, retreats to his “Fortress of Solitude” in the Arctic etc etc.
Doc was physically and mentally trained from birth by his father and a team of scientists to become the perfect human specimen with a genius level intellect. His heightened senses are beyond comprehension. He can even identify a women’s perfume from half a mile away. He is literally the master of everything.
But here’s the #1 reason I’m excited to become Doc Savage.. HE’S A F*CKING HILARIOUS WEIRDO!
Confidently, yet innocently he has zero social graces whatsoever due to his upbringing so every interaction he has with someone is direct, odd, often uncomfortable and amazingly hilarious.
After speaking for hours w/ Shane Black I can see why the creator of Superman took only the best parts of Doc Savage and leaving the “weirdo” part behind. But to us, it’s that “weirdo” part that makes Clark “Doc” Savage dope! Can’t wait to sink my teeth into this one of a kind character.
