Kevin Feige spoke with Collider recently and was asked whether Marvel had considered casting The Rock in the Marvel universe. Feige said:
I think yeah, I mean his name has come up in the past. I’m a gigantic fan of his, I think he’s an incredible – I might have met him once a long time ago, but I haven’t really met him. I don’t really know him – but I think he’s an unbelievable personality and an unbelievable sort of force of nature. He’s awesome in ‘Pain & Gain,’ he was great in ‘G.I. Joe,’ he’s really kind of an amazing human being. His Twitter’s always cool and he promotes the hell out of everything he does. I would love him to be part of the Marvel universe somewhere, someday.
The Rock responded with the following tweet:

A Luke Cage film is not believed to be in development. There are rumors that Cage is appearing in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (played by a different actor).

What do you think? The Rock as Luke Cage, or a different character?
