Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is making the promotional rounds for his new movie San Andreas and the actor is never one to miss out on an opportunity to be entertaining and also take up serious discussions like “Could DC Comics’ villainous Black Adam take out Marvel Comics’ King of the Inhumans, Black Bolt?” According to Johnson, “Black Adam would crush Black Bolt.”
MTV UK was doing the interviewing that brings up the very serious subject matter and you can check out a video of it below. While the guys over at MTV think Johnson is “confused” and “adorable” about the Marvel universe. I myself can tell that The Rock is laying the sarcasm on thick.
What I mean is Johnson isn’t wasting a chance to rib on his Furious 7 co-star Vin Diesel who has been rumored for some time now to be in the running to play Blackagar Boltagon in Marvel’s Inhumans movie. A little of Johnson in action:
[Asking off camera] Does anyone know what Black Bolt is? [Smiling back at the camera now] Well,let me tell you what Black Adam does. Black Adam, in the mythology, has the powers of Superman. He would CRUSH Black Tote. Black Tote? [The interviewer corrects him to Black Bolt] Black Boat? Black Boat ? Oh, so he’s like an in the water superhero, Black Boat.
The beauty of all this is we now to get wait and see what Vin has to say about that. And for those unaware, Black Bolt has insane powers in the Marvel universe and is considered by most to be one of the most powerful heroes in Marvel comics. His voice has the ability to level cities like a nuclear bomb would with just one whisper.
