ENTERTAINMENT 07/22/2018 01:43 pm ET The Rock's longtime producer explains it all. "Maybe in about 10 more years, we’re gonna have our version of an ‘Infinity War,’ a Dwayne Johnson War." By Bill Bradley Just as there is a Marvel Cinematic Universe, a DC Extended Universe (now Worlds of DC) and a hanging-on-for-life Dark Universe, I’ve always wondered: Is there secretly a Dwayne Johnson Universe unfolding before our very eyes, connecting The Rock’s movies across time and space?
