Dwayne Johnson to play Doc Savage

Dwayne Johnson would have to be a superhero to juggle all of the roles on his slate — and now, he officially is.

Johnson announced on Instagram on Monday that he’ll be playing “the world’s first superhero,” Clark “Doc” Savage, in Shane Black’s upcoming film Doc Savage, for which Black was announced as co-writer and director in 2013. Black recently called Johnson “the guy” for the role in an interview with Thrillist.

Johnson writes that he is excited to take on the character who inspired Superman, not only because “he is literally the master of everything,” but because he’s a “f—ing hilarious weirdo.”
