Dolf Zigger as Adam Warlock...Dean Ambrose as Namor... ???

Rusev as Kraven would be fun, though.

Why do so many comic fans want to see wrestlers as comic characters in movies?  I never understood it.

it can work at times. I mean look at Drax

Dave Bautista is a rarity in that he is actually a decent actor.  The Rock and Roddy Piper were good for cheesy action roles but otherwise, they need to he dumb muscle or nothing at all.

Agreed on Bautista, he has really surprised me. He was fantastic in Blade Runner, especially since his scene was so small. I really wanted to see more of his character.

Rock can also be very good but it seems like he picks every role he's offered, and a lot of them aren't really roles of substance.

Piper... I loved him in They Live but he's not on the level of the other two, at least from what I've seen.

I put Piper and Rock on the same level since they both do action popcorn flicks.  Neither one is a master thespian.

Rock has done drama in the past, and he's done it well, even if the overall movie wasn't great. I remember being as surprised by him when he first got big as I am by Bautista now. Obviously he can do comedy as well. I really think he's a good actor but he just can't say "No" to a role.

I thought he did a good dramatic turn in Snitch even if I had a hard time believing all these smaller dudes in the movie were able to intimidate him.

Rock's problem is that he plays himself in every role. He is surprisingly good though

Batista is awesme

I'm not surprised by wrestlers being excellent actors. The discipline to maintain a stellar physique, athleticism and act in Wrestling then applied to another profession which requires similar hard work, focus, and determination.

The Rock plays himself 90% of the time, but when he doesn't, he's disarmingly good. See Pain & Gain. Y'all better start paying the future POTUS more respect.

Bautista is surprisingly good, though.  He has perfect comedic timing as Drax and when he was in Blade Runner, I was impressed.  He acted the shit out fo that scene and made me both fear him and feel sorry for him.
