Just when we thought that The Rock was smelling something that wasn't cooking where superhero movies were concerned, it looks as though Marvel man Kevin Feige wants to see wrestler-turned-actor Dwayne Johnson in a superhero movie!

Feige, the producer behind The Avengers and Iron Man, thinks the Fast & Furious 6 star is an unbelievable force of nature and would be well suited for a superhero movie, reports Collider:

I think yeah, I mean his name has come up in the past. I'm a gigantic fan of his, I think he's an incredible – I might have met him once a long time ago, but I haven't really met him. I don't really know him – but I think he's an unbelievable personality and an unbelievable sort of force of nature. He's awesome in Pain & Gain, he was great in G.I. Joe: Retaliation, he's really kind of an amazing human being. His Twitter's always cool and he promotes the hell out of everything he does. I would love him to be part of the Marvel universe somewhere, someday.

This is all kinds of awesome. So, what does this mean? The future of the Marvel universe has Ant-Man, Doctor Strange, Black Panther and of course The Avengers 3 in the pipeline, could we see Dwayne Johnson pop up in one of these movies? Personally, I think Johnson should totally be pegged for Namor - that eyebrow was made for the absurdly haughty sea-dweller.

Who would you want to see The Rock play? Let us know below!
