Fans’ dreams of Dwayne Johnson joining the Marvel Universe might be closer to coming true.
Inspired by “Deadpool” star Ryan Reynolds’ appearance in “Hobbs & Shaw”, comics creator Rob Liefeld took to Instagram to suggest that Johnson should follow through on that established chemistry by playing “Deadpool” villain Garrison Kane.

Dearest @therock based on reports of outstanding chemistry between you and a familiar friend, I believe the next logical step is for you to join the Marvel Universe as Garrison Kane in a future Deadpool installment. You’re a natural and Kane is already celebrated by millions of comics fans who have thrilled to his adventures since I first introduced him in X-Force #2! Your pal, Rob!
Johnson responded to Liefeld’s idea, asking how he might familiarize himself with Kane.
A third film in the “Deadpool” franchise has yet to be officially confirmed, but Liefeld recently confirmed that the film “will totally happen.”
