The name Dwayne Johnson is self-explanatory. The way the WWE superstar transitioned into one of the top-tier Hollywood actors is just phenomenal, as it is hard to establish and secure a position in an industry crowded with superstars and excellent talent.

Johnson, who has been part of many blockbuster movies, is also rumored to be replacing Will Smith in Disney’s Aladdin Sequel (per Giant Freakin Robot). Will Smith was phenomenal as Genie. However, the Oscar incident may cause him to lose his role.

He is also set to be featured in his first comic verse film, Black Adam, and if the news of The Genie is true, it is a testament to Johnson’s superstardom.
