Dwayne Johnson, popularly known as ‘The Rock’, has always been about showmanship. He started off in WWE and soon rose to prominence for his boastful trash talk and larger than life attitude. From performing in fights to performing in movies, it was a natural transition for Johnson and one that many wrestlers have made since, including the likes of John Cena and Dave Bautista.
Johnson first appeared in ‘The Mummy Returns‘, before getting the chance to play the lead in his own spin-off movie titled ‘The Scorpion King‘. After that, there was no looking back for him as he went on to star in films like ‘Moana‘ and ‘Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle‘. However, if we are to look at his career, it would be his role as Luke Hobbs in ‘The Fast and Furious’ series, that catapulted him to international fame. His character in ‘Fast Five‘ became popular for encompassing the true spirit of what The Rock has always been good at – playing a larger than life character whose words are almost as hard-hitting as his punches! Since then he has become an invaluable addition to the franchise. Currently rated as one of the highest-paid actors in the industry, Dwayne Johnson has his plate full with numerous future projects. So, just in case you were wondering what’s the next Dwayne Johnson movie, here’s the list of all his films scheduled to release in 2019 and 2020.
1. Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs And Shaw (2019)
Having first appeared as Luke Hobbs in ‘Fast Five’, Dwayne Johnson quickly made the character into a likable one – a real tough guy who is all about the guts and glory. In ‘Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs And Shaw‘, he gets to continue his on-screen bromance with Jason Statham’s character, Deckard Shaw. In this spin-off, the two team up to stop a virus from wiping out half of the world’s population, but things are not as simple as they seem since they have to go up against a superhuman villain called Brixton (Idris Elba). Also starring is Vanessa Kirby of ‘The Crown‘ fame, who is apparently Shaw’s sister. Expect more insane chases and action sequences when Hobbs and Shaw come together to save the world.
2. Jumanji: The Next Level (2019)
Dwayne Johnson is not just about the action. He can play diverse roles, and funny ones happen to be his forte. Thus, his portrayal of Dr. Smolder Bravestone in ‘Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle’ was excellent and was one of the chief reasons behind the film becoming a success. Now, in ‘Jumanji: The Next Level‘, the sequel, he has to enter the game again and face whatever wilderness and madness are thrown at him. Reprising their roles are Kevin Hart, Jack Black, Karen Gillan, and Nick Jonas, while veteran actors Danny Glover and Danny DeVito are also part of the cast. We cannot wait to see what mayhem lies in store this time.
