I was actually thinking about the Black Adam, but you're right, he has saved the F&F franchise.

Srsly hope it does well, i wanna see this happen.

I'm just annoyed by everyone wanting to do a shared universe and planning  tons of movies before even seeing if the first one succeeds.

I was j/k.

I see your point, though. I personally dig on the shared universe concept, but the stufios should take it slow.

Yeah, Sony has been getting stupid with their plans of having shared universes.  First, they wantd to turn the Amazing Spider-Man franchise into one and failed, then they tried to make a weird Ghostbusters/21 Jumpstreet/MiB universe which failed before it even started.

Boom Studios or IDW would make an awesome crossover with those.

Plus it looks like Gal Gadot might have saved the day first.

Do not see Rock as Wolfman. I don't think you need a hulking guy for this role

More like he keeps getting offered everything, so why not.

Gree said the Rock's overpaid (he's the highest paid actor in Hollywood right now i guess).
I say its kinda like the point i made in PcD's painting thread.

Subjectivity.

He wouldnt be getting that much money, and that many movie parts, if the ppl in charge of these things didnt think he was worth it.
Theyre basically throwing money & steady work at him hand over fist in an industry where jobs can sometimes be years in between. 

Anyhow, i still dont think he's right for what theyve got going, but guess we'll see.

Hes the highest paid, while simultaneously not breaking top ten for best box office earner
