LOS ANGELES, Feb. 6 (UPI) -- Does Batman vs. Superman have its Green Lantern?

We know Henry Cavill will be back in the cape and tights as Man of Steel, and he'll be joined by Ben Affleck picking up the bat cowl where Christian Bale left it.

We even know Gal Gadot will join the cast as Wonder Woman, that Jesse Eisenberg has signed on to play Lex Luther and Jeremy Irons will step into butler Alfred's shoes.

Now, several suggestive posts from Dwayne Johnson -- you know him as The Rock -- hint that he was not only in talks to join a DC Comics movie, but that it will be the as-yet untitled Superman and Batman team-up film as John Stewart.

Back in November, he posted a photo to Instagram with the hashtag "JohnStewartCanStillWhupSupermansAss" -- referring to the Bronze Age incarnation of Green Lantern, not the same Lantern played by Ryan Reynolds in the 2011 film -- and then tweeted another hint in response to speculation.

Warner Bros. is expected to release Batman vs. Superman in the spring of 2016.
