Dwayne Johnson Shocks Twitter with His New Look for A24’s Mark Kerr Film

It’s no secret that Dwayne Johnson has a carved a niche for himself as a family-friendly actor, boasting digestible roles in films like “Jumanji,” “Jungle Cruise,” and “Moana.” However, that wasn’t always the case, as the wrestler-turned-actor used to star in more risky fare, notably the cult hit “Southland Tales” and Michael Bay’s “Pain and Gain.” While many seem to think of the actor as just a mascot for his own brand and believe that The Rock’s VOD era is about to begin, this first look as Mark Kerr is proving the naysayers wrong. Fans seem to be genuinely excited for what Johnson is cooking. 

“Are we finally looking at a film starring the Rock that isn’t an ego project where he’ll show off a vulnerable side to himself?” questioned @EvanMonroe12. “The Rock in an A24 movie? He actually looks like he’s putting work in?? Benny Safdie directing??? We are so back,” exclaimed @jamiller6565. “Had to be humbled by ‘Black Adam’ to actually act again lol,” joked @GL2814_3. 

While “The Smashing Machine” doesn’t have a release date, many are thinking that Johnson’s latest will be perfect for awards season, setting him up to win his first Oscar.  He’s always been a competent, engaging performer, so it will be interesting to see him go back to a more dramatic role. Then again, Marvel reportedly wants Johnson to play an X-Men villain, so maybe this film is just a brief pit stop for his career.
