Dwayne Johnson Wields a BFG in Prepartion for G.I. Joe 2

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has tweeted a new image of himself wielding a badass looking M249 SAW light machine gun, one of those guns that if I were holding it, would practically dwarf me, but in the Rock’s hands, it looks practically tiny. Dude is HUGE.

Johnson captions the pic with: “Found my gun today! M249 SAW. Guess who/what I envision in my crosshairs?”

Um, Cobra?

Johnson is no doubt getting in shape, LMG and all, for his role as Roadblock in Jon Chu’s upcoming “G.I. Joe: Retaliation”, due out sometime in 2012. The film will also star Channing Tatum, Adrianne Palicki, Ray Park, Byung-hun Lee, Elodie Yung, D.J. Cotrona, Ray Stevenson, and Joseph Mazzello.

    The Rock is talking about John Cena when he says who he evisions in his crosshairs. Assuming you know who that is Mr. Interent writer.

      Highly doubt it. Most likely Cobra as he’s preparing for the role in the pic. Wrestling doesn’t usually bleed into their other careers, and its not like he actually dislikes Cdma lol. Can’t wait for a grittier G.I.Joe. I’m telling you they need to watch G.I.Joe: Resolute before filming this.

        Never seen Resolute, any good?

          Absolutely a must for fans. It’s everything that was cool about the show but if it had grown up with us. It’s not a kids show.

        thats where youre wrong mr dedpool. wrestling bleeds so much into films that Dwayne The Rock Johnson is IN a big budget hollywood movie. what you have here is an ambiguous example of a “shoot” statement designed to get us the wrestling fans and you the hollywood guy. its just that we know whats happening, and the hollywood people are still looking up “shoot”.

          Sorry. Gotta disagree. He may have started as Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, but he paid his dues as an actor without that name for a bit before coming back to it. He did decently in Hollywood despite going against type and people complaining, and he’s gotten his roles on his talent. He’s going back to the name not because he has to but because he wants too, and he wants to give back to those who helped him get to where he is. If this was a WWE backed film then I’d agree but him coming back to wrestling did not get him this role, or Fast Five, or Faster.

            without wwe there would have been no rock and no dwayne johnson in any of those movies and just how they planned his return for a year away so they can milk it and build it up for a year, is the same way he vaguely left the target of said picture a mystery. why leave anyone out.wrestling got him all his roles. and im sure wrestling fans account for a huge number in his fanbase. im not going to comment on why hes using what name for what i dont know him personally. but i am familiar with vague advertising, hollywood chenanigans and wrestling story set up. this may not be a publicly backed movie by wwe but just having this dood on means its linked.

            Well we’ll just have to agree to disagree. I’m not saying WWE didn’t make him, I’m just saying that he got by on his own merit as well. I wouldn’t be surprised if he took all the family roles to distance himself from The Rock persona and show he could legitimately act. He’ll always be known as The Rock but unlike say Hogan he can actually act and didn’t have to rely on the persona to get him parts. That’s all I was saying. I’m also pretty sure WWE doesn’t want The Rock taking aim at anyone with a gun. They’re so family friendly now they can’t even show blood. Or at least that’s what I’ve heard, I stopped watching years ago. I will however find a way to see Rock vs Cena as its a match I wanted way back when. Hopefully won’t be a letdown like Brock vs Goldberg.

    we can agree to disagree but im still gonna be right! haha cus check this out…the rocks movies suck! as a stand alone actor he cant carry a movie. all his hits have come when hes got co-stars with big names as well. for example, the movie with stiffler and vin diesel. no one remembers “walking tall”, or “doom” his last movie with billy bob stunk as well and no one goes to see these movies past their first week. which is “prob” why he went back to wrestling, cus he needed to convince his fans to go see his movies again. Which is why that statement he made with this picture is left open ended and up to our imaginations depending on where we follow him whether in hollywood or in wwe as to who hes talking about. we all know hes in the movie so why not just come out and say cobra? wouldnt that be a sure way to get all the fan boys who write and comment about this stuff all stirred up about the movie. maybe his biggest movie ever. lets remember the rock has never had his predator style of successful movie. he hasnt even had a running man type of successful movie. and then the tooth fairy and all those lame comedies that they put him in totally ruined his cool image, he even stopped using steroids and he lost a lot of wwe fans because of those movies and thats why hes back in wrasslin. because he screwed up his image. now he NEEDS the wwe because he needs wwe fans to go watch his movies.
    again.
