Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has officially begun physically training for his upcoming DC Universe film role as the anti-hero Black Adam.
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has officially begun physically training for his upcoming role in the DC Universe film Black Adam. Over the past decade, Johnson has turned from a former wrestling superstar into one of the best leading actors in Hollywood, starring in everything from Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw to Disney films like Jungle Cruise.
The upcoming Black Adam movie will be directed by Jaume Collet-Serra and is said to be the first introduction of DC Comics’ Justice Society of America. With the same Director of Photography (Lawrence Sher) as another recent DC film, Joker, Black Adam has previously been reported to want to try and “reshape” the idea of what a comic book movie is. Although the Black Adam character appears as more of a villain in the comics, for instance, Dwayne Johnson has stated he wants his version to be more of an anti-hero.
Now, thanks to Johnson himself, fans are aware the physical training for his role as Black Adam has officially begun. The actor posted a series of photos on his Instagram page earlier today showing him in the process of working out, and he also shared a short Black Adam animation with the comment, “Kickin’ off 2020 training extremely hard for my upcoming role as BLACK ADAM. This one’s in my blood.” Check out the images below:
