Slash Film put a poll up on Twitter beginning July 21 with a simple question: whose side are you on in the feud between Dwayne Johnson and Vin Diesel? The three options to vote for are Team The Rock, Team Vin Diesel, and, of course, FAMILY. The results thus far seem pretty definitive. As of this writing, Team Vin Diesel only has 9.2% of the vote, with FAMILY coming in at the No. 2 spot with 37.3%. Team The Rock is simply dominating this poll with 53.5%. Even if you counted every “family” vote as one for Diesel, Johnson still comes out ahead — and that’s pretty telling.
Perhaps it’s Diesel’s recent comparison between himself and Italian filmmaker Federico Fellini, maybe it’s because Dwayne Johnson is just so darn likable, but it almost feels like The Rock should play The Thing instead of Black Adam — because this is absolutely clobberin’ time and Johnson is clobberin’ like no other. What impact this will have on the supposed final two “Fast & Furious” movies in the long term is anyone’s guess, but in the short term, The Rock rules the day.
As of this writing, neither Johnson nor Diesel has commented on the poll.
