What can we say about Johnson’s Cinematic Universe? Did it begin with Central Intelligence that shows the origin of our hero as a chubby teen? What about his take on the Jumanji and Smolder Bravestone? Perhaps, his story has been told chronologically and today we have a Scorpion King who has evolved? Also, let’s not forget about his show called Ballers.
What you need to know is that Dwayne The Rock Johnson Cinematic Universe actually exists and Hiram Garcia, president of productions at Johnson’s Seven Buck production company, told Huffington Post that all the actor’s movies are connected.
“In our business, the ultimate goal is everyone wants to create a universe, so if we can somehow, if there’s a master plan happening right now that you just don’t know. But maybe in about 10 more years, we’re gonna have our version of an ‘Infinity War,’ a Dwayne Johnson War. Just say you heard it here first, and that we’re damn brilliant for doing it.”
Make the Infiniti War with The Rock and you would have Dwayne Johnson going against Dwayne Johnson. Garcia points out that there is an obvious aspect that is drawn through each of his movies.
“There very much is always a thread … It’s always about a guy who’s somehow getting better, even just a little bit. If you look at the most extreme version, ‘Pain and Gain,’ even as that character, he got a little bit better somehow at the end. … That’s something we do try to look for in our movies. There’s always a little bit of healing. There’s always a little bit of getting better, coupled with some kind of a family tie, something of heart.”
The story of Dwayne Johnson starts 5,000 years ago when Mathayus avenges the murder of his brother and becomes the Scorpion King. When he is banished back into the Underworld in The Mummy Returns, he returns Mathayus’ soul to his body and becomes immortal to protect the earth forever. That easily translates to jumping from skyscrapers, saving lives with Zac Efron and bringing an NFL team to Vegas.
