Is Dwayne Johnson Already Signed Onto a Secret DC Character?!

Yesterday, Dwayne Johnson was at CinemaCon in Las Vegas to promote the new trailer for his up coming film Hercules. Comic Book Resources spoke with the actor about Hercules but of course the attention switched to that rumor from last year that Dwayne Johnson would be appearing in a future DC role. He started out talking about his interest in DC:
"So, you know, there’s been mutual interest with myself and DC for many years to find the right character. I, like everyone here in the room, love superheroes. So there’s been mutual interest with us for years, and we’ve been having ongoing discussions, myself and DC, for years about the right character, what the right character would be. That’s another thing, too: It had to be right."
When the site went to press harder on what character it could be the actor cryptically gave three hints:
"The first quality we were looking for was that he had to be extremely complex and have a lot going on. What that does for me as an actor and the studio is it gives us space that we can explore; his complexities. The other quality was that he had to – the character we were looking for had to be well-known but never brought to life. Then what that does again as an actor, it gives me a little bit of space, and we talked about personality. It just gives me a chance to put an imprint into his personality, with the set of tools that I could bring to the table and put a very unique twist on his personality, but still pay homage to who he is. The third thing – and most important – is he had to be a badass motherfucker, OK, and on a Superman level of power, where [he] could throw down. In those three qualities, I’m happy we’ve found that character."
Now many fans think he maybe the evil Darkseid in a future Justice League Film. While others are hoping he takes up the mantle of Green Lantern as the famous John Stewart. Lest we forget he hinted John Stewart could kick Supermans ass several months ago!

Never-the-less it sounds as if the actor has already signed on for a role with DC....the question is who?!

:: Mini Update :: -
Collider was also speaking to Dwayne Johnson about the DC character he was playing. They asked if we will get an announcement by Comic Con in which he replied:
Yeah, I think time, man! We need to find a writer. When is that, June? July? Yeah, possibly. So how about that?”
 They also went onto ask if he might cameo in another DC film like Batman vs Superman which Johnson replied "Possibly but they [WB] haven't discussed it"
