Eh, with the ears, Batman usually seems taller than Superman anyway.

And if they were really worried, they could just have Superman float off the ground.

Why is everyone so worried about who the Rock looks like he can play? I'm more worried about which character does the rocks acting ability best suit. We know, the Rocks, style. He appears to be conscious of his status and the appeal that he has amongst the younger demographic. So, it makes sense that he would choose to play a hero.I'm sure he could play a villain but in order to reach his full potential as a villain, i think he would be to worried about what kids think. It's certainly a brilliant marketing decision, but that's what scares me. Maybe, Martian man hunter.

If Rock=John Stewart is true, while Rock wasn't one of my choices(Idris, Chiwetel), I'll be stoked as Hell that WB/DC is finally choosing the right GL. This will show that they recognize @least one of the mistakes they made last time. They can take my money now if they'd like. I hope he does a great job

Really don't think that using the least charismatic GL is a good idea.

I suppose the Rock will help with that, but still, I don't think he suits John Stewart, personally.

Meh, he should be Shazam or Black Adam.

I'd be happy with Adam, or him as J'onn.

I'd love to see him as Kilowog, though the Rock is unlikely to pick a role where his face is obscured, I'd think.

John is, was & probably always be the best choice for a GL in live action. He's got the most positive exposure to the general audience & a look that more easily translates to live action. Hal never really meant much outside of his comic fanbase. Hell, people were complaining about them "making GL white" when his film was about to come out. I knew the movie was gonna fail the instant I found out John wasn't in it. I couldn't get hype about it & figured that many wouldn't. There are a few people who I'd rather see in the role, but if it's the Rock I'll still support it & hope that he pulls it off well. I'm a fan & he apparently puts butts in the seats. He fits Black Adam perfectly, but I don't see WB putting him in a movie anytime soon

They'll give the Rock a character that can start a franchise, since he's pretty big star nowadays. Black Adam and Martian Manhunter is a no go. None of those can support their own movie. John Stewart is the best choice and will/could rejuvenate the GL franchise on film.

I don't agree about the GL stuff at all, but fair enough.

Getting the Rock to sign on for a franchise might be difficult; he's already signed on for the Furious movies, and he has Hercules coming out.

Now, if he does well in whatever role WB give him, then it would be a major coup for them, and I'd love to see him stick around for multiple pictures.

Is Herc going to be a multi pic deal? Because, if not, he can always do a few movies a year.

That's what I'm saying; I don't know.

Getting him to sign a multi-picture deal might be tricky, with the sheer amount of work the guy is doing. He's one of the most bankable action stars in Hollywood right now.

I agree Rock should play some major superhero. His stardom will automatically bring hype to the role. But as we know from the past that alone won't guarantee a hit in the superhero movie world (Ben Affleck as Daredevil, Nicholas Cage as Ghost Rider).

I also agree that John Stewart would help give a GL movie that more serious tone. Reynolds "charm" and "funny man" routine really didn't help that movie, and just aided in it being more cheesy and less of a serious movie.

Plus yes I-Drop is right that Stewart was more widely recognized thanks to the JL and JLU series.

I honestly wouldn't want him as John Stewart. He's so big, NOT having him play a physical character would be such a waste.

The Rock also isn't... "dour" enough to be John either, imo. You would need someone like Denzel or Michael Jae White to play a believable John Stewarr, imo.
