Dwayne Johnson Shares BLACK ADAM Set Photos; One Teases His Costume and the Other Shows Off His Ripped Body.
Dwayne Johnson has shared a couple of photos of his upcoming DC film Black Adam.
The first image offers a tease of Johnson’s Black Adam suit in the movie. Johnson talked about the suit saying, it’s “not your typical DC or Marvel padded muscle suit,” you’ll see another photo of Johnson showing off his physique and he’s looking insanely ripped!
Johnson included a note with the first photo saying:
This image of Black Adam from behind gives you a tactile sense of the absolute massive scale and size of our movie. You also see a little of the intricate and beautiful textured detail of Black Adam’s body suit (this is not your typical DC or Marvel padded muscle suit). And finally you get a glimpse of the enormous and appropriate destruction. As we all know, superheroes have a code of justice and don’t kill the bad guys. But, Black Adam does. The hierarchy of power in the DC UNIVERSE is changing.
The second photo with Johnson came with this note:
“Rage. In our final week of shooting BLACK ADAM⚡️ our director, Jaume Collet Serra designed very cutting edge, intricate, bad ass and cool shots. This advanced robot arm called a BOLT is the fastest in the world with a high speed PHANTOM camera that shoots me at an insane 960 frames per second (normally movies are shot at 24 frames per second). If you know the comic mythology of BLACK ADAM, then you know, his rage comes from pain. His pain comes from the loss of his wife and children. He is now the most unstoppable force in the DC Universe or ANY endgame universe. A real privilege and honor for me to bring the antihero, Black Adam to life with cutting edge technology — and partnering with my director Jaume Collet-Serra and our Director of Photography, Lawrence Sher and their hungry and brilliant team of filmmakers and storytellers. Do not go gentle…”
