Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson is as popular as a wrestler can hope to get. After a successful career in wrestling entertainment, The Rock dabbled into the world of Cinema. His first few movies weren’t encouraging enough to keep going. But with his comic timing and majestic stature combined with his talent for acting in front of the camera, The Rock became a huge hit. People loved the Rock – not just because he was good inside the Ring, but also because he was even better at the very thing people thought he couldn’t ever be. He beat the odds.

So when we say The Rock is willing to kick the Avengers’ asses, it is not his ego or pride taking over. He has beaten unfavorable odds before, and he most certainly can do it again.
The Rock has given us Blockbuster movies like G.I Joe: Retaliation, the Fast and Furious Franchise, Journey 2: The Mysterious Island, Central Intelligence and a Fast and Furious spinoff with Jason Statham currently in the works. Dwayne Johnson is currently working on Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle. And it is on a video promotion of this movie that the Rock said what we clearly heard he said. He would like to defeat the Avengers by himself. His words, Not Ours.
The Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle video promotion sees the Rock claiming he could beat the Avengers’ by himself… in a video game scenario that is. The Rock has been a wrestler throughout his life and has beaten plenty of unbeatable foes before. Is overconfidence taking over?
The Rock is an action star through and through. In G.I.Joe: Retaliation, The Scorpion King and the Fast and Furious movies, Dwayne Johnson has kicked a lot of people into the ground. He is the organic terminator if the terminator was bald and had a good sense of humor. Johnson is in a good a shape as ever, The Body Count could get bigger.. just saying.
Of course, we are not talking about Dwayne Johnson would defeat the Avengers’ as The Rock. He is going to beat the Avengers not as Wrestler but as a superhero. The DC Extended Universe has already revealed plans for The Rock to being cast is the Anti-Hero Black Adam. It is in this Avatar The Rock aims to kick all of the Avengers’ asses.
Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle is a movie that combines Comedy, Physical and animated action to give us a unique experience in the theaters. The movie involves four teenagers being pulled into a video game where they fight for survival.
Answering a question asked by a Twitter user, The Rock gives a unique answer that if he is pulled into the game, which celebrities would he like to pull into the World of Jumanji if he had the chance. This was what the Rock said:
“Here’s the thing: It’s not just one celebrity I’d pull in. No, no, no, no. I will pull them all in. The all who I’m talking about is The Avengers. I’d pull all of them in. All of them need their ass kicked! ‘Cause it’s DC, baby! That’s how we roll. Black Adam!”
Now hold your horses Marvel Fanboys. Before you decide to hold the torch and ride your horses to The Rock’s home and burn it to brisk, hear him out and read the context. The Rock is playfully kidding. These kinds of hilarious taunts are what made The Rock famous during his wrestling days. Clearly, he has not forgotten his old ways yet.
The Rock will always be a little bit more biased towards DC coz he is playing Black Adam after all. But that does not mean he will be held accountable for some playful taunts he is doing to promote his new movie Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle. He means well and bears no ill will to his co-stars. So don’t get riled up people because it is just a joke and should be taken as one.
Directed by Jake Kasdan, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle stars Dwayne Johnson, Jack Black, Nick Jonas, Karen Gillian, Kevin Hart and has a release date of December 20, 2017.
