The Rock hints that he’ll play the Green Lantern?

After plenty of speculation it looks as though Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson may have already teased his appearance as the Green Lantern.

The 41-year-old wrestler-turned-actor has been rumoured for a part in the upcoming ‘Batman vs. Superman’ for some time – most speculating that he could be up for the role of the Green Lantern (aka John Stewart). And while that’s quickly become a fan-favourite, it seems the man himself may have already teased an appearance as DC’s Green Lantern some months ago.

In a rather innocent Instagram image, The Rock is pictured alongside friend and producer Hiram Garcia… but the picture isn’t quite as important as the hashtags that go along with it.

“#TeamRock #JohnStewartCanStillWhupSupermansAss”

Now, this is far from a confirmation that The Rock will be playing the Green Lantern… but it certainly hints towards it. And that tallies with a lot of the rumours we’ve been seeing over the last few months.

It all began with a tweet from The Rock, explaining that he’d been in for a talk with Warner Bros… and speculation quickly turned to the Green Lantern.

We just had a big meeting w/ Warner Bros CEO re: @DCComics 2014 we will partner up and create the cool bad assery. #RockTalk @ActionTilson

Of course, the mention of DC Comics made it an easy connection to make… and the mention of ‘2014’ could put The Rock in line for a Green Lantern cameo in the upcoming ‘Batman vs. Superman’. Interesting….
