SPECULATION: Dwayne Johnson Courted For 'SGT. ROCK' Not 'LOBO'?

There had been rumblings when Dwayne Johnson sent out a tweet hinting he might be up for a DC Comics superhero film that it could be Lobo. With his Journey 2 director Brad Peyton set to rewrite and helm Lobo the assumption lead to that movie. BleedingCool even reported on the rumor today from another source which they couldn't confirm. Jeffrey Dean Morgan (Watchmen, Losers) had long been linked for Lobo even doing a screentest, so he could still be in the mix.

Sgt. Rock may or may not be getting new life at Warner Bros., Johnson could also be up for this role too. Dwayne is headlining G.I. Joe: Retaliation (a reboot of sorts) it wouldn't be hard to see him jump into another franchise with lots of firepower. The current vision for the Sgt. Rock film would see the hard boiled soldier fighting in a futuristic war, switching up the original WWII setting.
