Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson has sparked rumours he is to star in the new Batman vs Superman movie.

The Fast And Furious star tweeted that he had met with Warner Bros and DC Comics, leading to speculation he will play a villain in the new superhero film starring Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill.

Dwayne tweeted: "We just had a big meeting w/ Warner Bros CEO re: @DCComics 2014 we will partner up and create the cool bad assery."

The actor-turned-wrestler has long been rumoured to be starring in a DC Comics movie, with previous reports linking him to the roles of Captain Marvel supervillain Black Adam and alien bounty hunter Lobo.

But now fans are wondering if he will play Lex Luthor or Doomsday in the as-yet-untitled film.

It was previously reported that Game Of Thrones star Jason Momoa and Callan Mulvey were in the running for Doomsday and Warner Bros were said to be considering Joaquin Phoenix for Lex Luthor.

Dwayne's Fast And Furious co-star Gal Gadot was recently unveiled as Wonder Woman.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Taurus:

Your forceful personality makes people sit up and take notice of you. This is a great time to show off your expert knowledge. Demonstrating a command for facts and figures will result in a teaching or media position. Make sure you don't impose this air of authority at home. Your family won't appreciate being ordered around. You may be a superstar in intellectual circles, but you're just another relative on the domestic front. Don't bristle at your loved ones' irreverence. It's good for your ego.More
