    Dwayne Johnson Keeps Talking About 'Shazam,' Also Lines Up 'Journey 3 & 4'

    Dwayne Johnson doesn't need much prodding to talk about "Shazam." In fact, we're pretty sure his breakfast order is, "three eggs scrambled, multigrain toast, bacon, beans, fruit smoothie and....oh hey, did I tell you about the DC Comics movie I'm doing?" And so while he waits for Warner Bros. to fin...

    Box-Office: Scarlett Johansson’s ‘Lucy’ Beauty Outperforms Dwayne Johnson’s ‘Hercules’ Brawn

    Call it a battle of the beauty and the beast if you like. Though audiences didn’t seem to love Luc Besson’s “Lucy” or Brett Ratner’s “Hercules”—at least considering those dismal Cinemascore ratings (C+ for the former). But they were unsure about either and curious, as reviews for both hit rather lat...

    Review: 'Hercules' Starring Dwayne Johnson, Ian McShane And John Hurt

    There are cheap costumes, cartoonish special effects and endless nonsense monologues in Brett Ratner's “Hercules." Ergo, there's also Ian McShane. HBO's "Deadwood" blew up the journeyman actor's career, making him a must-have accessory in the eyes of all casting agents. But since the end of that sho...

    Dwayne Johnson Terrible At Secrets: All But Reveals Captain Marvel Role

    Dwayne Johnson doesn’t really know how to play the super hero tease game. Or at least, he’s not very good at it and if this were a Christopher Nolan project, the filmmaker would be having a heart attack by now. So the “Hercules” star already basically let it out of the bag that he’ll be playing Capt...

    New Featurette, TV Spot & Images Of Dwayne Johnson In Brett Ratner's 'Hercules'

    After a decade-long quest, Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson is finally a fully-flung movie star: he's helped elevate sequels in the "Fast & Furious," "Journey" and "G.I. Joe" franchises to be significantly more successful than their predecessors. But so far, the actor's standalone actioners haven't had the...

    Universal Wants Dwayne Johnson For Robert Ludlum's Bourne-esque Franchise 'The Janson Directive'

    Tell me if this sounds familiar: a former special ops agent leaves his government gig and goes into business for himself, taking on cases that he believes will help those in need. So sort of a bit of Jason Bourne mixed with Jack Reacher? Sounds about right, and perhaps it's no shocker that "The Jans...

    Watch: Dwayne Johnson Gets Mythological In New Full Length Trailer For 'Hercules'

But on the plus side, the always magnetic Dwayne Johnson is in the lead. But again, thi...

    Dwayne Johnson Reveals 3 Clues About The DC Character Warner Bros Is Developing For Him

    In DC Comics' and Warner Bros' ongoing attempt to emulate the Marvelverse and introduce huge numbers of characters to the screen, with all the attendant potential for standalones, spin-offs and the like, one name has been around for a long time without becoming attached to any known role.
