Dominic Cooper Captain America

While Dwayne Johnson‘s plans to play DC’s Lobo were dashed earlier this year, he could still find his way to another superhero movie if Marvel Studios’ Kevin Feige has his way.

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, 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.

Johnson would be a fun addition to the MCU, though Feige doesn’t say exactly how the actor might fit in. Johnson has previously expressed his interest in playing Luke Cage, though as far as we know there’s no Luke Cage project in the works right now. (Well, S.H.I.E.L.D. rumors notwithstanding.) Who would you like to see him play? [Collider]

After the jump, Dominic Cooper is returning for the Captain America sequel, and Mark Ruffalo talks The Avengers 2 and Iron Man 3.

Dwayne Johnson Rock Pain Gain

Michael Bay must have really liked working with his Pain & Gain co-stars. We know he’ll next be teaming up with Mark Wahlberg for Transformers 4, but the Oscar-nominee was not the director’s first choice. That honor goes to Wahlberg’s Pain & Gain co-star, Dwayne Johnson. Johnson revealed in a Twitter interview that Bay offered the lead role to him, but he had to turn it down because he’s starring in Brett Ratner’s Hercules. Read More »

Fast and Furious 6 - flying from tank

The Fast and the Furious films have always done well, but 2011′s Fast Five really kicked the franchise up to a whole new level in terms of box office, critical praise, and gleefully over-the-top ridiculousness. With some luck, Fast & Furious 6 could raise the bar even higher. That shot of a car shooting out of  burning airplane, for example, seemed like a great start.

Helmed by returning director Justin Lin, the latest installment of the car-centric series sees Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) turning to Dom (Vin Diesel), Brian (Paul Walker) and the rest of the gang for help in catching a dangerous mastermind (Luke Evans). In exchange, our favorite thieves will get full pardons so they can return home. Complicating matters is the unexpected reappearance of Letty (Michelle Rodriguez) whom they believed to be dead. Watch the last trailer after the jump.

pain-gain-poster-header-2

We’ve come to know Michael Bay as the maestro behind a very specific type of huge movie, as he has defined the image of  glossy pictures full of gorgeous women and explosions. His work, as that suggests, isn’t really known for subtlety.

But since before Bay latched on to the Transformers franchise, he has wanted to shoot a film based on the story of a few Miami bodybuilders who concocted a plan to kidnap a businessman and steal his wealth. Years later, that story has become Bay’s “little movie,” Pain & Gain, starring Mark Wahlberg, Anthony Mackie, and Dwayne Johnson. The movie isn’t likely to change Bay’s image, but it does represent something (slightly) different from the director. Reviews have been coming in for a few days, but now we want to know what you think about Bay’s true-crime tale. Read More »
