Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson to Play Doc Savage

Doc-Savage

The Rock posted to Facebook that he will be playing Doc Savage in a new Shane Black directed flick.

It’s OFFICIAL: For all comic book fans you already know the world’s first superhero (pre-dating Superman) is the “Man of Bronze” himself Clark “Doc” Savage.

Want to thank my bud director/writer Shane Black and his writing team Anthony Bagarozzi and Chuck Mondry for flying in from LA and sitting with me and our Seven Bucks Productions’s producer Hiram Garcia on this Memorial Day weekend to chop up creative and break story on this very cool project.

Comic book fans around the world know that the cool thing about “Doc” Savage is that he’s the inspiration for Superman. First name Clark, called “Man of Bronze”, retreats to his “Fortress of Solitude” in the Arctic etc etc.

Doc was physically and mentally trained from birth by his father and a team of scientists to become the perfect human specimen with a genius level intellect. His heightened senses are beyond comprehension. He can even identify a women’s perfume from half a mile away. He is literally the master of everything.
But here’s the #1 reason I’m excited to become Doc Savage.. HE’S A F*CKING HILARIOUS WEIRDO!

Confidently, yet innocently he has zero social graces whatsoever due to his upbringing so every interaction he has with someone is direct, odd, often uncomfortable and amazingly hilarious.

After speaking for hours w/ Shane Black I can see why the creator of Superman took only the best parts of Doc Savage and leaving the “weirdo” part behind. But to us, it’s that “weirdo” part that makes Clark “Doc” Savage dope! Can’t wait to sink my teeth into this one of a kind character.

Rounding out the cast for the film is three-time Oscar-nominee Mark Ruffalo (“Spotlight,” “The Kids Are All Right,” “Foxcatcher”), reprising his role of Bruce Banner/the Hulk from “Marvel’s The Avengers” and Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron.”

“The continuation of the epic Thor franchise will be powerful and unique, and with the additions of Cate, Jeff, Tessa, Karl, and Mark to the cast we have the makings of his most dangerous and heroic adventure yet,” said Producer Kevin Feige. “The sheer, raw talent each of these actors brings to the screen can’t be quantified. Having any one of them join the Marvel Cinematic Universe would be an honor, and having all of them is incredible.”

Thor’s new cast members join returning stars Chris Hemsworth (“Rush,” “In the Heart of the Sea,” “Ghostbusters”) in the title role for the fifth time; Tom Hiddleston (“Crimson Peak,” “The Night Manager,” “Kong: Skull Island”) as Thor’s adversarial, adopted brother, Loki; Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild Award winner Idris Elba (“The Dark Tower,” “Luther,” “Beasts of No Nation”) as the Asgardian sentry, Heimdall; and Academy Award-winner Sir Anthony Hopkins (“Silence of the Lambs,” “Nixon,” “Hitchcock”) again portraying Odin, Ruler of Asgard.

Thor: Ragnarok,” the third installment of Marvel’s popular Norse Super Hero, is directed by Oscar-nominated filmmaker Taika Waititi (“Two Cars, One Night,” “What We Do in the Shadows,” “Hunt for the Wilderpeople”). Kevin Feige will produce the film, joined by executive producers Louis D’Esposito, Brad Winderbaum, Victoria Alonso, Thomas M. Hammel and Stan Lee.

Fun Movie and Character Hat Logos for Women

In our grandmother’s day, women’s hats were very special items. Most women wore hats only at Easter time or on formal occasions. They certainly, unless they were tomboys, did not wear baseball caps or any other type of hat with a logo!

Today, however, fun logos on hats for women are fashionable.

Some of the most popular hats for women’s wear are now based on TV and comic book heroes. Wonder Woman, the Avengers, the Justice League, and even the villains and villainesses of the world of films and comics have become great ways to demonstrate a flair for the contemporary look for young and old alike.

Superman

The classic Superman hat is a must-have to add some flair to an everyday outfit. A capital S logo on a bright blue hat with yellow and red details provides a simple yet powerful look. Piece it together with jeans and a tee shirt for a timeless ensemble that tells people that you’re on team Superman.

Harley Quinn

There’s nothing like the empowering presence of a woman super villain to show the world your edgy side. The trucker style hat shows the image of Harley’s face painted with her enticing and villainous grin. This hat is an ideal accessory to emphasize your confidence in a slightly intimidating way.

Batman

A Batman logo with black and gray features outlined in yellow can be the perfect hat for a chic look. Bruce Wayne is notoriously known for his upscale and professional presence. Channel your inner Batman and put your best foot forward with this hat in your wardrobe.

Robin

The Robin hat showcases a green brim with a red background, and the yellow and black Robin logo on the front. Represent America’s greatest sidekick and give credit where it’s due. By wearing the Robin hat, you show that you’re an authentic fan who appreciates characters even if they’re not the main focus.

Captain America

Support a team that fights against the forces of evil when you wear a classic Captain America hat. Wearing a hat with the name of Captain America on it makes this hat a favorite among women and men. Also, the movie for Captain America: Civil War is currently very popular, which makes it easy for you to show up in style when wearing this hat.

Deadpool

Deadpool is infamously known for fighting against injustice from the mad scientist who gave him powers. This hat is definitely in style due to the recent release of the movie in which Ryan Reynolds plays a superhero with a twisted sense of humor. By rocking this hat, you can keep up with the ever-growing culture of comic books.

Avengers

If the Avengers are your favorite superhero team, then this hat is a must-have. There are many versions of the hat for maximum customizing with your wardrobe. Specifically, the Age of Ultron Hawkeye Metal logo hat features a blend of dark purple, black, and silver for a very dynamic piece of apparel.

Spiderman

A black hat with a bright red spiderweb draped over the top is an easy way to add some gothic flare to your style. Spiderman is everyone’s favorite hero due to his good nature and drive to protect his loved ones. This hat is a classic addition to a massive fan base, and it will help you to continue to support Marvel, The Avengers, and, most of all: Peter Parker, aka Spiderman.

Marvel

The classic Marvel vs. DC debate is a major part of the world of comic books. By choosing Marvel, you let people know where you stand. The upcoming movie for Dr. Strange will be the latest installment in the series of Marvel movies. With this hat, you can credit an entire population of passionate comic book fans.

Hulk

This green hat is convenient for showing off your favorite superhero, and it also functions as last-minute St. Patrick’s Day attire. Especially fitting if you’re someone with an explosive personality. Show off your inner strength by wearing this hat, and people will be made aware of your power.

Joker

Why so serious? This hat enables you to have a little fun with your outfit by wearing something crazier than a normal hat. Heath Ledger’s performance as the Joker stood out as one of the best and, with this hat, you can honor a legendary villain. A combination of unsettling and intriguing makes sure the character on this hat will turn heads!

Iron Man

The ominous glare from the legendary Iron Man paints the front of this hat with a combination of yellow and red. It is no secret that Iron Man is well known; he even has his own anthem by the old-school heavy metal band Black Sabbath. Throw this hat into your everyday attire to proudly show your affiliation with a resilient superhero that knows no limits when there is danger around.

Final Thoughts

There is no reason to wear a plain, solid, or striped hat when you can have one that sports a logo. Fun and whimsical, a hat with a logo of your favorite superhero can add a bit of style and individuality to your outfit.
