    They said the movie would focus of the 'weird aspects' of the character so I have serious doubts about this. I hope I'm wrong but . . .

      In every Doc novel, there's always a "weird aspect", which always turns out to have a logical explanation. Then too, Clark Savage's life would have been pretty pedestrian, if his father hadn't turned him him into an experiment, by having him raised by scientists and specialist experts, specifically to be a superior mental and physical specimen perfectly suited to combatting the forces of evil in the world. That's kind of a 'weird aspect' of Doc's character. He's living a weird life, defined by his training and his mission.

      I think Dwayne Johnson's pretty good casting. Obviously a total unknown wasn't likely to be considered, since the Doc Savage name doesn't have wide enough recognition to the moviegoing public at large. Whether Shane Black will be allowed to make the kind of Doc movie he wants to make is debatable (as is whether it will actually get made at all), but he talks the talk... it remains to be seen if he'll be able to walk the walk.

        Interesting. Wonder what the relative timing of this movie and the SHAZAM one will be?
