Proof that Luffy will become the Pirate King

It's becoming more and more obvious that Monkey D Luffy is the future Pirate King, in the new opening song: "We Go" It shows Gol D Roger, the former Pirate King wearing Luffy's straw hat, then Shanks, who is one of the Yonko (not sure about spelling) and then Luffy.
Also his name; D, I keep hearing about the Will of D, but I'm still not sure what it is, but i think it has to do with becoming extremely powerful and having the ability to do the impossible and reach their dreams, I dunno, I'm just guessing.
Earlier on in the anime, when they were still in Logue Town, the bartender who once served Roger said that he resembled him in spirit I guess, and Smoker said that the only other person who had smiled at his own execution was Roger, just like Luffy did when Buggy and Elvida tried to kill him (and failed obviously)
There's also how Luffy and the Straw Hats managed to go to Skypea and back just like Roger's crew did before, how Roger could "hear" the sea, the animals and the trees, in the first few episodes when Luffy first defeated Moji and Rickie (Buggy's lackies) he seemed to understand Shushu, and after fighting the CP9 he could hear Going Merry as well.
Roger and Luffy are both from East Blue, and one of Luffy's adoptive brothers; Portgas D Ace is Roger's son. And how Luffy's grandad was the one who caught Roger. He know's Shanks, Buggy and Rayleigh who were all on Roger's crew, and Rayleigh was Roger's first mate, also Luffy's sensei for 2 years. He was even acknowledged and had a conversation as equals with Whitebeard, the greatest pirate after Gol D Roger, who used to be close friends with him.
When the Straw Hats, Rayleigh, Shakky, Hacchi, Caimie and Pappage were at Shakky's bar, Rayleigh noted the resemblance between Luffy and Roger, how he says: "I don't want to conquer anything! Its just that the person with the most freedom on the sea is the Pirate King!" is very similar to what Gol D Roger said before.
When Roger died, it was a turning point in an era, after the war in Marineford, Luffy turned a new era, and later after the two year time-skip, there were even more resemblances, Luffy could use "King's Haki" which only a selected few could use, and Zoro who is unofficially Luffy's first mate, had a scar over his left eye just like Rayleigh does.
Before Luffy departs to Fishman Island, he tells Rayleigh once again "Rayleigh! I'll become the Pirate King!" and this somehow reminds him of the olden days where he was first asked by Roger to join his crew and how cheerful he seemed just like Luffy is now.
Then at Fishman Island the Sea Kings said he could understand them and only one man could do that before, and that was Roger.
So the question is, do you think Oda is being way too obvious and making the end too predicable? Can you think of any other connections between Roger and Luffy? Any guesses to how One Piece will end?

yes i know i know, but its so obvious!!
And i mean any guesses to what One Piece actally is and how it relates to the actual show, since Oda has a way of somehow connecting everything.

I have this theory that one piece would be just a large mirror. When luffy looks at it he sees himself and his crew and he knows what the most powerfull and precious thing is in the world.

I don't think Oda is being way too obvious, we don't know what exactly One Piece is! and how to be the pirate king and having the freedom in the whole Seas.

and remember when ivankov injected luffy in the empel down! which made his age 10 years shorter. and blackbeard also have the same dream as luffy.

it will not be easy! but we believe in luffy.

The straw hat thing isn't a coincidence. It originally belonged to Gol D. Roger, who gave it to Shanks, then Shanks gave it to Luffy saying that he should keep it then give it back to him when he becomes Pirate King. Also I don't think that One Piece will end yet. I heard that Oda-sensei stated that One Piece woouldn't end until 10 years or so

I also believe that Luffy will be the next Pirate King, and I dont want Luffy having the same fate as Roger had, suffered from an incurable disease.

I want to see Luffy getting married with Hancock at last. hihi.....

Dont you guys find in weird? We still dont know what powers God D Roger has before his death? Silvers Rayleigh mentioned that Gol D Roger can hear things/thoughts meaning He does know all things, including the Rio Poneglyph, location of things he wanted to find. Gol D Roger even found the Sky Island because he can hear things up the sky island. If you were Gol D Roger, aren't you going to find a Reincarnation fruit ( not same as Yomi Yo? Not Brooks.) But I know you got my point. What if Luffy is Gol D Rogers reincarnation?

Gol D Roger tells Rayleigh that he will not die ( Sabaody episode ).

There are lots of characters in OP that gave hints Luffy resembles Gold Roger, the way he smile, attitude etc.
