The Rock is ready to take on another exciting role in DCEU

At this point, the biggest project of his Hollywood career is DC Studios’ ‘Black Adams’ where Johnson plays the titular anti-hero career. However, before the movie finished, The Rock has another news for the fans.

Johnson has been cast as the voice of Krypto the Super-Dog in the upcoming animated movie, “DC League of Super-Pets.” Krypto is the pet of Superman.

The animated DC film focuses on Superman’s dog, who teams up with a flying cat to stop crime while his owner is on vacation. It’s set to release in theaters on May 20, 2022.

Apart from this, the highest-paid actor in Hollywood has quite the itinerary. The most recent ones include Disney’s “Jungle Cruise,” (set for July 30), as well as Netflix’s “Red Notice.”

Keeping all this in mind, it is highly unlikely fans would see The Rock back in the ring anytime soon. There were rumors of him coming back to face his cousin Roman Reigns at WrestleMania. That plan has been shelved for the upcoming year or two.
