If this happens... WHOA!

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson appears to be very interested in joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe, following the record-breaking success of 'Avengers: Endgame.'

Johnson posted a video on Instagram earlier this week, in which he congratulated the entire cast and crew of 'Endgame' for bringing in $1.2 billion at the global box office on opening weekend.

"I'm so incredibly impressed and very, very proud and very happy for you guys," Johnson said in the video.

Things took a very interesting turn when Johnson specifically called out the head of Marvel Studios, Kevin Feige, and expressed interest in meeting up with him.

"Congratulations to the architect and mastermind behind this whole thing, Kevin Feige," Johnson said. "Congratulations my friend. It’s been so cool to watch and witness and learn. As I watch you and your team meticulously storytell over the years has just been really incredible. I know our assistants have been trying to get us together for dinner for months now. We’re both super busy boys, and I look forward to our schedules linking up."

Marvel Studios hasn't confirmed any meetings between Johnson and studio executives, but things sure are looking interesting!

The next Marvel film slated to be released is 'Spider-Man: Far From Home,' which is scheduled to hit theaters on July 5.
