Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and Ryan Reynolds both have huge fan-followings on social media. So you can imagine the excitement it caused when these stars had a fun exchange on Twitter about the 'Black Adam' movie, Zack Snyder's 'Justice League' and the possibility of seeing Ryan Reynolds in either of them. It all started with Reynolds refuting rumors that he will be playing Hawkman in 'Black Adam', though he did admit he has heard he might already be in the Snyder Cut.

"I’m not playing Hawkman in Black Adam. Although I generally do whatever the hell @TheRock tells me to do. I would however love to be in Zack Snyder’s Justice League movie and I’ve heard I may already be in it? #SnyderCut," the actor tweeted.



 

The Rock was quick to hit back with a response demanding that Reynolds will play Hawkman before going on to claim that he's also Deadpool, Green Lantern, in the Snyder Cut, and the biological father of Kevin Hart. Just friendly banter between two superheroes.

"You ARE playing Hawkman and that’s that. You’re also Deadpool, Green Lantern (when you want because you own the intellectual property), you’re in the Zack Snyder JL movie and you’re also @KevinHart4real’s dad. Like in real life, as per your blood test," Johnson tweeted.



 

One amused fan responded to the thread writing, "Dwayne...there are crazies who will take this seriously and run a story with it." And well, here we are.  



 

To be fair, the conversation has caused considerable excitement among DC fans and invited a lot of comparisons between Reynold's Green Lantern / Hal Jordan and MCU star Chris Evans' early superhero role as the Human Torch / Johnny Storm in the first two 'Fantastic Four' movies. Here are some of the tweets that have been going around.

"You being in JL as Green Lantern would be a self-roast only comparable to Chris Evans returning as Human Torch in the next F4," one fan commented.



 

Other fans were more hopeful, suggesting that everyone deserves a second chance at superheroics though one might argue that Deadpool was Reynolds' second chance and he did amazingly at it. "Ben Affleck got a second chance, the first Daredevil, which knocked him down then he got up and became...THE BATMAN. I believe Ryan is due the same if he returns to DC," a fan wrote.



 

Another fan suggested that Reynolds ought to play Deathstroke, the character who inspired the creation of Deadpool, even though that role has already gone to Joe Manganiello. "If DC doesn't cast you as Deathstroke they are missing out on pulling off one of the best industry coups and inside jokes in the industry," they wrote.



 

And raising the really important questions, we have one fan who asked, "Does this mean he's tied with @ChrisEvans for most comic book characters played? And Hawkman could push him into #1 spot!?!?"



 

Well, our beloved Captain America isn't getting dethroned anytime soon. As one fan explained, "Evans has: Fantastic Four, Captain America, TMNT, Losers, Snowpiercer, Scott Pilgrim and (if we’re generous) Push. Reynolds has: Deadpool, RIPD, Green Lantern, Blade Trinity. Even with Hawkman, Evans would still have more individual roles and more overall appearances. Fun Q tho."
