Spread MCU News

Although Dwayne Johnson hasn’t yet made an appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, a villainous part may be his ticket. The Rock should play the legendary X-Men villain Apocalypse, according to new fan art. @mikeposters posted the artwork to Instagram. The image includes Johnson’s transformation into Apocalypse, the Cyclops skull, and the phrase “Only the strong will survive.” The Black Adam star would be ideal for the part of Apocalypse, the digital artist added.

“Following the recent rumors and the X-Men ’97 finale, I decided to create my version of En Sabah Nur, aka Apocalypse,” claimed the creator. “In my opinion, he is a fantastic character who merits a return to the big screen. Being a major admirer of Dwayne Johnson, I think he would be ideal for the role of this legendary antagonist. His strong presence and innate charm would blend in perfectly with Apocalypse’s menacing atmosphere. Imagine The Rock as a supervillain, ready to use his incredible abilities to take over the entire world! That would be fantastic to watch in cinemas.”

It has been said that Johnson was considered for the role of Apocalypse, which had an impact on the artwork. There have been no formal statements about the character’s possible inclusion in the MCU. It’s anticipated that the X-Men will undergo a reimagining in preparation for their eventual entry into the MCU, which may involve Apocalypse playing a villain. Although X-Men ’97’s Season 1 conclusion hinted to Apocalypse’s significant role in the upcoming season, no new X-Men films have been formally confirmed. Johnson’s last attempt at making a superhero movie didn’t quite work out. With high aspirations for sequels, he acted in the high-budget film Black Adam with Henry Cavill’s portrayal of Superman. After Black Adam’s poor box office performance in 2022, James Gunn and Peter Safran were hired by DC Studios, signaling the DCEU’s impending demise. Johnson voiced Krypto in the animated film DC League of Super-Pets, another DC-based picture that came out in 2022.
