Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has officially begun training in the gym for his upcoming role in the DC Universe film ‘Black Adam,’ and the pictures of how big his upper body is getting are shocking.
The Rock posted several photos from inside the gym weightlifting, and let’s just say, a “superhero” is the perfect way to describe how he looks.
“So it begins. Kickin’ off 2020 training extremely hard for my upcoming role as BLACK ADAM. This one’s in my blood. Thanks to my guys @bosslogic @veliokulan for this badass animation. The hierarchy of power in the #DCUniverse is about to change. #NewEra #BlackAdam⚡️ Shooting begins this summer,” he posted along with 3 photos of his workout.”
According to reports, the new ‘Black Adam’ movie will be directed by Jaume Collet-Serra. Interestingly, the Black Adam character appears in the comics as a villain, it seems The Rock is trying to change his image into a “anti-hero.” We will have to wait and see exactly what that means.
Fans of The Rock, and of the comic book character, are going nuts over the photos on social media.
“My gym pictures never come out this good and I use like 42 filters too,” one person commented.
Famous track star Lolo Jones sent a message via Instagram, saying, “When the gym runs out of heavy enough dumbbells he’s gonna have to start curling Kevin hart.”
As you know, Johnson and Hart starred together recently in the new ‘Jumanji’ movie.
People are blown away at how big he is in the photos, commenting, “Beast mode,” and “Those arms looking like google maps!!” Another added, “Save some veins for the rest of us!”
As for his casting in the ‘Black Adam’ movie fans are letting their opinion known. “Finally a REAL casting for a comic book hero. Not some small non working out type dude. I mean…literally how are YOU bigger than the CGI version of The Hulk??? ” one fan posted.
“This is gonna be next-level!!! Can’t wait for anything: sneak peek, teasers, the movie!”
We will have to see how good the movie will be, but we know there will be plenty of shirtless scenes!
