Yes, he would…That’s all I really need to say. We already know that a live-action movie based on the Naruto anime is in the making and casting the Fourth Raikage should be a simple choice. I simply can’t see anyone better than Dwayne Johnson or otherwise known as The Rock, to play the part of The Fourth Raikage.
A recent post was made over on Reddit thanks to the user stark1310, showcasing how the wrestler-turned-star would look as the Fourth Raikage and we are impressed.
It has been several years since the original plans for the live-action movie first surfaced and early last year ComicBook.com has confirmed that Hollywood is now casting for the leading roles for the Naruto movie.
Arad Productions is stated to produce the Naruto movie along with PICTURESTART. Furthermore, the current writer is said to be Jonathan Levine. Ari Arad will produce the movie along with studio executives Brady Fujikawa and James Myers with Michael Gracey directing.
Thus far, only six roles were advertised and hese include:
Two Male, One Female (14 – 18) Asian
High school-aged Asian teen guys at the Ninja academy.
As you can see, it’s doubtful that the Fourth Raikage is part of any of these current vacant positions. Furthermore, the film will likely be set during Naruto part 1. This means that there will need to be sequel content created in order for the Fourth Raikage to appear, as he first appears later in Naruto Shippuden. However, if a sequel does take place, we already know who needs to play the Fourth Raikage.
