Months of speculation have gone to waste as Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has exited the DC cinematic universe to join the widely successful Marvel Cinematic Universe. In an off-handed comment made earlier today, The Rock blamed DC for “moving too slow” and “not knowing what the fuck they were doing” in regards to setting up their much anticipated cinematic crossovers. “It just got to this point where no one could smell what The Rock was cooking.” You can find the full statement below:
Over the past several years, I’ve grown with you all into loving what Marvel has done on the big screen. After being invited to watch a private screening of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, I was blown away yet again. So I’m excited to announce that I will be entering the Marvel Cinematic Universe as M.O.D.O.K. in the third Captain American film. It’s great to be a part of something larger, especially when this something is the driving force behind super hero films.
Johnson will be joining the cinematic universe as M.O.D.O.K., and is said to be the main villain in the third installment of Captain America. May 2016 couldn’t come sooner!
