It seems that news of Chris Hemsworth upcoming Hulk Hogan biopic even has people at DC excited, as Aquaman star Yahya Abdul-Mateen II apparently wants to play wrestler Booker T.
The Aquaman star took to Twitter upon seeing the news that Chris Hemsworth would be playing Hulk Hogan. In a response to the news, he asked if he was playing Booker T:
I’m playing Booker T?? Right?? https://t.co/X8gjsyHN3X

From the look of things, the Aquaman actor just might be a fan of Booker T.
Booker T, of course, is a former professional wrestler, having spent time in three different wrestling organizations and is the most decorated wrestler in history, having held 21 titles in his carrier. Booker T and Hulk Hogan had several matches together and has even gone so far to say that people should forgive him for his controversial remarks. How this may play into the film, however, is unknown.

‘Captain Marvel’ Post-Credits Scenes Are Emotional & Goosebump-Inducing
Captain Marvel has been confirmed to have two post-credits scenes that should send goosebumps through audiences and make them emotional at the theater.
Captain Marvel had its first press screening and has received some generally positive reactions from critics who went to the showing. It’s been over ten years since our first movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe so it’s no surprise that there will be more exciting stuff after the movie ends. Audiences at the screening have confirmed there will be two post-credits scenes — a scene before the credits roll and one afterwards.
Captain Marvel is an effective Avengers prequel in some ways akin to the 1st Captain America movie. It’s pro-woman without being overdone with pre and post credit scenes that made me tear up and gave me goosebumps respectively pic.twitter.com/or2Oj7CdRV
