The Man of Bronze Is Coming

The first would have to be that imposing, alright.

Dwayne Johnson announced yesterday that he has landed the role of Clark “Doc” Savage“the world’s first superhero,” in Doc Savage, a new superhero blockbuster to be irreverently co-written and directed by Shane Black (The Nice Guys).

Doc Savage first came to life in American pulp magazines, in the ’30s and ’40s. Known as the Man of Bronze, the character evidently would go on to inspire the creation of Superman.

Black’s script is expected to zero in on the oft-hilarious relationship between Doc Savage’s strength and his lack of social grace.
