Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has shared several intriguing images from his upcoming DC superhero debut, Black adam, with a behind-the-scenes shot that even reveals the back of his super suit. The Rock has been signed to play the infamous Black Adam for quite some time, and so far the actor has played him very coy when it comes to the iconic black and gold suit worn by the DC anti-hero.
“Verified. On set. BLACK ADAM. This image of Black Adam from behind gives you a tactile idea of the sheer massive scale and size of our movie. You also see a bit of the intricate and beautiful textured details of Black Adam’s costume . (This is not your typical DC or Marvel costume) And you can finally glimpse the massive and appropriate destruction. As we all know, superheroes have a code of justice and they don’t kill bad guys. But Black Adam does. Hierarchy of power in the DC UNIVERSE is changing. Anti-hero. Man in black. Protector of his people. “
Weather Dwayne johnson mentions the “massive scale” of the set, it’s the actor’s size that fans are sure to notice, with the already hulking actor looking bigger than ever for Black adam. He also mentions that the suit is not your typical muscular suit, something that fighter-turned-actor’s strength coach and trainer Dave Rienzi has already revealed will be very different from the superhero norm. “It’s a fun process when you have someone like [Johnson] he’s so motivated, disciplined and determined to get the job done, “Rienzi said.” There is an ever-evolving vision that we are always working towards. We’ve been preparing for the Black Adam movie for a while now, with the goal of creating a real-life superhero physique … without the need for a padded superhero costume. “
A second image shows The Rock poking fun at the cutting edge filming processes that have been developed to bring Black adam to the life.
In addition to revealing that the film is now in its final week of shooting, Johnson describes director Jaume Collet Serra’s approach, which includes designing “very edgy, intricate, bad and great shots. This advanced robot arm called the BOLT is the fastest. in the world with a high-speed PHANTOM camera that shoots me at an incredible 960 frames per second (normally movies are recorded at 24 frames per second). “
Johnson concludes by saying that it is a “true privilege and honor for me to bring the antihero Black Adam to life with cutting edge technology, and to partner with my director Jaume Collet-Serra and our cinematographer, Lawrence Sher and his hungry and brilliant team of filmmakers and narrators “. The Rock is clearly as excited as DC fans to finally see Black adam come to life on the silver screen.
