The Rock shows ripped training for ‘Black Adam’
It’s no secret pro-wrestler-turned-action-star Dwayne Johnson already has an incredible physique.
But for his role in “Black Adam,” an upcoming “Shazam!” spin-off due in December 2021, the actor has already started training in the gym like a superhero. Er, make that an anti-hero.
“The hierarchy of power in the #DCUniverse is about to change,” Johnson wrote on Instagram Friday. “#NewEra #AntiHeroTraining #BlackAdam”
The accompanying picture shows Johnson with veins bulging from his arms as he clutches a bar with massive weights on both ends. He also posted two more photos of his Rockness working out with dumbbells, as well as an animation of his Black Adam form.
“So it begins,” he wrote along with the animation, which shows him levitating in his black and yellow Black Adam gear, followed by a flash of lightning and the film’s release date. “Kickin’ off 2020 training extremely hard for my upcoming role as BLACK ADAM. This one’s in my blood.”
He added, “Shooting begins this summer.”
The 47-year-old actor described how playing a superhero fulfills his childhood dream in an Instagram post in November.
