The Rock Won't Let Those Green Lantern Rumors Die
Rock believes Lantern “can” whup Superman’s behind, but will he ever get the chance to? Saying he’d be a welcome addition to Warner’s fledgling Justice League family is such an understatement, I feel stupid for having bothered to type it out. Just make it happen, DC.

San Andreas will be directed by Brad Peyton, who teamed up with Johnson to earn Warner over $335 million worldwide with 2012’s Journey 2: The Mysterious Island, a film that opened in the February release graveyard.

I just hope the demons are actually scary, and not cartoonish like the bad guys in Van Helsing.

Lately, Dwayne Johnson has been showing off his muscular physique by Tweeting photos from the set of the Hercules movie.

The story it tells is ambitious, centering on a secret clan of shepherds that keep mythological creatures from disrupting our existence. When there’s a break in the succession of shepherds, the creatures take advantage, and it falls on one woman to hold them back.
