AK X-MEN Fan Art Unveils How Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson Could Look ‘Badass’ in MCU Doomsday




Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s possible appearance as En Sabah Nur, also known as the evil Apocalypse, in the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been hinted through recently surfaced X-Men fan art. Look it over…
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is rumored to be the choice of Marvel Studios to play Apocalypse in the MCU.


This insane rumor began circulating online earlier this month.

After Avengers: Secret Wars, an X-Men relaunch, presumably called “Uncanny X-Men,” will be produced. However, is the professional wrestler who became a Hollywood A-Lister a good fit for the MCU? It’s no secret that after trying to transform the DC Extended Universe into the “DJ Extended Universe” with Black Adam, he sought to exercise creative control over it!

Kevin Feige and Marvel Studios won’t go for it, but if The Rock is Game, he may be a fittingly powerful En Sabah Nur in a later live-action X-Men film.

We get a glimpse of his sinister appearance in some new fan art, and it looks very good.


It’s still unclear how old the actual X-Men will be, but if the majority of the ensemble consists of unidentified teenagers, then a big-name actor playing the antagonist might be a wise choice.


“Following the recent rumors and the [X-Men ’97] finale, I decided to create my version of En Sabah Nur, aka Apocalypse,” @mikeposters, the artist, explains. “I think he’s an incredible character who deserves to be brought back to the big screen.”

“As a major Dwayne Johnson fan, I think he would be ideal for the role of this legendary antagonist. He continues, “His imposing presence and inherent charm would be the ideal complement to Apocalypse’s potent aura. “Just picture [The Rock] as a supervillain, prepared to use his incredible abilities to take over the entire globe! That would be fantastic to watch in cinemas.”

Hiram Garcia of Seven Bucks Productions affirmed in 2021 that Johnson and Feige had spoken and considered the prospect of Johnson joining the MCU.


“[Dwayne Johnson] and Kevin [Feige] have a great relationship and we’ve flirted around a few ideas before, but nothing serious,” Garcia said. We both admire what the other has been accomplishing, and what Kevin has accomplished over there is just amazing. In the end, though, we’ve always had a strong commitment to the project we intended to develop with Black Adam.”

Writer Louise Simonson and artist Jackson Guice developed Apocalypse, who debuted in X-Factor #5 in 1986. The ancient mutant is a proponent of “survival of the fittest” and would stop at nothing to advance mutantkind’s evolution, even if it means using violent and genocidal tactics.

He has gathered several mutant fan bases, referred to as the “Four Horsemen,” to further his goals of imposing his vision of mutant supremacy on the world and treating himself as a god-like figure. Oscar Isaac was the antagonist in X-Men: Apocalypse (2016).
