A look up into a Man of Steel ensemble plotting sky notes a bird (loosely, it's a Batman), a plane (at possibility an invisible one off Wonder Woman's inclusion) and along with it's Henry Cavill's continuing Superman, a Rock just might drop in.

And we're still waiting for a good word to "come and lay the smack-down" on entertainment news.

A Radical Hercules is already Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson's incoming comic book movie to theaters. But on Dec.'s literally last day a moving walkway flash of news sped up into one of the most coming soon talk-abouts of modern myth adaptations.

It was Rock's Tweet that sacked speculation at a linebacker-rush.

We just had a big meeting w/ Warner Bros CEO re: @DCComics 2014 we will partner up and create the cool bad assery. #RockTalk @ActionTilson

Rock dropped the Twitter-mike on the worldwide announcement stage right off the barely settling dust upon checkmarks on the rounds of in-talk announcements in a "Batman vs Superman" sequel. Gal Gadot signing on as Wonder Woman. The cowl-and-cape acceptance by Ben Affleck escalating into Batfleck polarization.

And earlier that day The Rock had Tweeted a pic of himself in a Batman emblazoned tee-shirt.

This is the second time a live action role around a DC Comics propriety has come up for the Rock. Before it was the supposed portrayal for Black Adam.

Hero or villain is the chain reactive follow-up for Dwayne Johnson's inclusion into the oncoming blockbuster sequel.

And as far as stunts and choreography go, to up the ante on the right kind of bombastic that set up the redoubtable Michael Shannon in "Man of Steel" -- who better than Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson?
