Disney Might Replace Will Smith With Dwayne Johnson

Fans of Disney may notice a significant shift to an iconic part in an upcoming film project. Will Smith has been one of the most famous performers in the business for several decades. However, he was thrust into the spotlight and the target of much criticism following an unusual occurrence at the Oscars earlier this year that surprised fans and fellow actors and actresses.

Will Smith got up from his seat and rushed on stage after Chris Rock made a joke about Smith’s wife. Then he slapped Rock across the left jaw. He walked off stage, clearly yelling at Rock, “Keep my wife’s name out of your f***in’ mouth!”

Smith received the Oscar for Best Actor in a Leading Role for his depiction of Richard Williams in King Richard II just minutes after the incident occurred (2021). Smith resigned from the Academy after facing widespread criticism.

The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air actor made his Disney bow with Aladdin, a live-action smash that grossed more than $1 billion at the box office. Though Disney has continued to use Will Smith’s footage. It appears that his iconic role as Genie in the future Aladdin 2 film may undergo significant changes.

Dwayne Johnson And Kevin hart Movies

Dwayne Johnson has progressed from a pro wrestler to a Hollywood A-lister. And, despite having had several successes on his own, Johnson appears willing to share the screen with other performers, particularly Kevin Hart. They co-star in a new DC Comics animated film, but how many films have they filmed together?

Dwayne Johnson leaned on his action-comedy abilities for the 2016 film Central Intelligence, after years of playing action heroes. Johnson and Hart play childhood pals who reunite and must flee terrorists in the film. The visual contrast between the two performers alone drew viewers to cinemas. Johnson measures 6 feet 4 inches tall, while Hart is at least a full foot shorter.

According to Box Office Mojo, Central Intelligence earned more than $216 million worldwide on a $50 million production budget, while receiving generally positive reviews.

Furthermore, since their first film together some years ago, Johnson and Hart have maintained a bond and a continuous partnership that has benefited both performers’ careers.

Johnson and Hart reunited for Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle a year after Central Intelligence. That film, a remake of Robin Williams’ 1995 hit Jumanji, starred the duo alongside Karen Gillan and Jack Black as playable avatars controlled by four kids sucked into the titular videogame. The film grossed over $960 million.

Naturally, the cast returned for the 2019 sequel, Jumanji: The Next Level. Hart also appeared in Hobbs & Shaw, a Fast and Furious spinoff starring Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham, the same year. Hart plays an air marshal who meets Hobbs and Shaw on a flight in that film. Johnson and Hart appeared in their fourth film together. And now comes the sixth installment.

The new animated film DC League of Super-Pets features voiceovers from Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart. They take on the roles of Krypto the Superdog and Ace the Bat-Hound, respectively. The two protagonists, along with a band of superpowered dogs, embark on a rescue mission to save the Justice League from Lex Luthor’s wicked grasp (Marc Maron). Animated shenanigans are unavoidable.

Dwayne Johnson Pirates of the Caribbean

As a result of the ongoing defamation action between actor Johnny Depp and his ex-wife Amber Heard, Disney will not rely on Depp for the Pirates of the Caribbean production.

According to Marca, Dwayne Johnson will take over Johnny’s role as Captain Jack Sparrow.

Following the Aquaman actress’s oblique charges in the Washington Post, Hollywood superstar Depp will no longer be a part of the classic film epic.

Meanwhile, the corporation is already on the lookout for potential alternatives for this scenario.

Rumor has it that Margot Robbie will play this role in the upcoming Pirates of the Caribbean film. However, there are still reservations about Robbie’s intrusion.

Producer Jerry Bruckheimer announced that two spin-offs are in the works. According to specialized sources, there could be a third with an unexpected protagonist.

The Rock could play the lead in the third spin-off, according to Giant Freakin Robot.

The legendary actor has a friendly relationship with Disney. Johnson was promoted as the new protagonist due to the positive link.

Disney wants to add a makeover with one of Hollywood’s most well-known actors.

Interestingly, Dwayne might replace another actor who has recently been in the news.

The actor would also take over for Will Smith in the upcoming Aladdin film.

Getting the role of Jack Sparrow would be another triumph for the Jungle Cruise actor.
