What would your reaction be if this was a legit cast? Cena vs. The Rock, Shazam vs. Black Adam.
>>
>>78004271
it would probably be better than their WM matches

it would be epic for the win bro ! xD *trumpets playing john cena song*

>>78004271
If they changed his hair I could see it working okay.
Who better to play Captain Marvel than a big babyface ham?
>>
>>78004271
I'd probably die laughing.

Wrestlers may well be actors and Johnson has certainly shown - over decades - that some of them can cross over successfully to mainstream movies, but bringing them all in together?

Have you seen any Hulk Hogan movies? They're all trying to fill the world with magical whimsy spread by a giant racist roidrager. They are uniformly terrible. Most of them have microbudget problems because they paid the star's licensing rights.

Cena is simply not a big enough name in the mainstream to carry a movie of this size. If they made it at all I'd expect it to be an hour-long tv special.
>>
>>78004271
I'd hate it.
>>
>>78004271
It's already hard for me to separate The Rock from whatever character he's playing, bringing John Cena into it would make it impossible to unsee. I don't want Captain Marvel's movie to be just "That movie where John Cena fought The Rock with magic."

Also, after 20 years, I'm physically incapable of picturing John Cena with different hair.
>>
>>78004271
I dunno, man. I just can't see it.
>>
Nah. I feel Shazam should still have a youthful look even when Shazam'd out

Magically transforming into John Cena seems like a plausible power fantasy for a ten year old boy, so sure.

If they tried to work in any of his signature moves though, I'd be upset.

I would go watch it five times.

For a kid born in 2005?
Wrestling was dead by the late 90s, bro. I was born in 96 and never knew anyone who watched wrestling except for this one kid whose dad was literally Hank Hill

Lmao, shut the fuck up. You don't know what you're talking about.
>>

He's probably not going to be 10. Most things have had Billy in his midteens even before Flashpoint.

And I was born in 89 and I never knew anyone who cared about wrestling either but it still exists somehow so we're probably just weird.
>>

Yeah I can tell please end your life

Cena has the face for it, and with his career in pro wrestling it had to come to this. Usually when a wrestler gets out of a contract and are planning to retire they go into acting, volunteering, entrepreneurship, or some other business. Or this can be totaly rewined by the XD JOHN CENA, and the smarks of the pro wrestling business.

No nigga, he's gotta be Ibac. Kane as Sabbac.

Isn't this guy basically the face of that company's downfall?

His rise to prominence has been directly proportional to them losing more and more business. Only masochistic weirdos like wrestling now (which is probably why so many comic book fans like it)
>>

Everyone who was born in 96 is 18/19.
>>
>>78004613
was one of those guys todd howard?

Honestly, Cena already does a great job of acting like a twelve year old in a grown man's body. It could work.

Nah it has to be Joe Mangonelley

Sucks that you are having out with narrow minded fools that don't get that the writers can't make anyone look good at that the only winning move at this point is to just walk away.
>>
>>78005625
my problem with modern WWE is that both them & the fans seem like they're really embarrassed of the craziness & overall goofiness that pro wrestling is known for and as a result most of the new guys don't really have a personality outside of "wrestler"
>>
I will never understand wrestling fans or people who want wrestlers to play main characters in anything.
>>
>>78005787
The key is in balance. You have to accept the ridiculousness of wrestling but not go overboard with it and make it more of a fucking circus than it already is. Dean Ambrose is close to the perfect balance between crazy goofiness and serious wrestler. The Wyatts are plain stupid with the craziness. The League of Nations are pretty boring with the "just wrestler" attitude.

You're underestimating the importance of consistency. The Wyatt Family doesn't make sense in a universe allegedly set in the real world. If they are going to have black magic, why the hell aren't they on top of everything? They just look like dweebs.
>>
>>78005787
Yeah, the company is blatantly ashamed of being a rasslin company. It wants a bland product that can easily sell ad space.

Again, it's not worth anyone's time.
>>
>>78005881
ambrose is ok but the only thing I like about him is his chemistry with reigns (and vice versa)

>>78006028
and i understand the reason why the the wyatts are a thing (to fill the void the undertaker will inevitably leave when he retires) but bray really drags the whole group down by not being intimidating at all

unless you're a girl at a brony convention at fat man in a fedora & hawaiian shirt isn't scary
>>
>>78005332
It's strangely popular around here and with my uncles. I personally used to like the hype from the wrestling but generally hated actually watching it as a kid/teen. I just really never did enjoy watching a bunch of sweaty men grope each other for an hours or three.
Now I just pretend to not hate it via not saying anything and get to enjoy about 30 seconds of it when something I actually find entertaining happens during an event.

Being completely honest I think Cody Rhodes would be great. He has a muscular physique and jawline yet he can pull off the youthful exhuberance of Billy Batson more than Cena. Like I could see him being a teen or kid in a man's body.
>>
>>78005147
I was born in 89 and was a kid in 96 and wrestling was the shit. Shut your fucking mouth.

Wrestling declined with incredible speed as soon as they took out the blood. With it went the bizarre angles, the insane storylines, the un-PC stuff. Cases in point:

Kurt Angle saying he wasn't too much of a fan of those 'black people' and no one could do anything about him saying it
Someone claiminh Eddie Guerrero was 'addicted... to losing!' after coming back from rehab shortly before his death
Edge and Lita's on-air sex celebration
That Snitsky wedding dedication poem that included the lines:
>It's not my fault, what love can do to us
>It's not my fault, you have a dead baby in your uterus
>>
>>78006028
You do remember when Voodoo priests would face Pimps or when Jake the Snake made Warrior menstruate from his hair, right? Power levels are bullshit even in wrestling.
>>
>>78007564
People bleeding all the time made it lose any value. It makes the times when it does happen better.
>>
>>78005434
Nah. He should be Lobo.
>>
>>78007806
Surely it basically never happens now. Do you really see people genuinely weating the crimson mask anymore? Think of the times when men would beat each other so bloody it was measured in pints. When every kickout felt as though they were clinging to life by their fingertips. When every subsequent pedigree or chairshot of SCM seemed to practically kill each man. Wrestling used to mean something. It had integrity then.
>>
>>78007765
Yeah, I guess you're right.

Point still stands that they shit the bed with making the Wyatt Family intimidating because making a cult scary requires a certain level of subtlety. Vince and co don't know the meaning of the word. It's why so many of their stories fall flat, really.

PS: New Day is best girl
>>
>>78007564
The problem came from them not building new stars, then the old one retired and nobody gave a single fuck.

Why else do you think they still rely so hard on Cena?
He is the one dude who still draws something for them, even if it's something very reduced.


It doesn't help he is booked like a corporate champion.
>>
Why make a movie with John Cena if we can't see him?
>>
>>78007930
My understanding is that he's an exceptionally dedicated worker as well as having the size and presence. That has to count for something. The last time I went anywhere near WWE they were pushing some new big guy who used a spear for a finisher, and he was part of some big stable or another. I think he was ethnic in some way?
>>
>>78007883
Yup.

Bleeding on camera gets you fined now. The company really prefers its violence to be neutered.

No, Shazam has been a white male for long enough. It's time for a woman of ethnic origin take on the role.

They've watered down their extreme rules match types to the point where it's all just painfully bland.

I agree on the Extreme Rules deal. Why bother using he match type if you aren't going all out?

I'm the same age as you and I don't know what you're talking about. There are a shit ton of the white and mexican kids when I was in elementary school who were all about modern wrestling on tv. And guess what: their favorite was always John Cena himself. I guess it just depends on where you live.
>>
>>78004271
I don't care really as long as the actor for Shazam has the signature nose and can act like an immature boy. I think Cena's close enough. I don't know of too many people with that nose from the comics.

At least you can bet that the movie would generate a lot of hype if it was Rock vs Cena.

I think another good choice if you are looking for a brand name actor would be the guy that white guy that was in Magic Mike XXL
>>
>>78005416
He was the only guy available at the time when Austin, Rock, and Lesnar quit and Eddie couldn't handle the pressure of being champ. It's from 2010-now where I feel like their dependence on him began to hurt them.

he does a lot of charity visits to hospitals to cheer up young fans. A video of such a visit got out. It had the whole 'got a very special friend visiting you today *cue entrance movie* JOHN CENA' *kid cheers*

That would actually be a better casting then 99% of the castings in the DC comic movies period.

Would piss off the nonexistant purists though.
