AceShowbiz - Dwayne Johnson was put to the ultimate test "physically" and "mentally" as he worked on the "Black Adam" blockbuster, insisting it's been the "hardest undertaking" of his entire career.
The wrestler-turned-actor, who is famed for his action roles in films like "San Andreas", "Skyscraper", and "Rampage", took to Twitter on Friday (16Jul21) to reveal he had completed filming on the DC movie all about his titular antihero - and the project had pushed him to the limit.
"That (is) a wrap on BLACK ADAM," he posted.
"Incredible journey. Hardest undertaking of my entire career physically & mentally. Worth every second."
Johnson, who embarked on a strict diet to maximise his muscular build onscreen, went on to share his thanks to the cast and crew of the Warner Bros. production, adding, "Boundless gratitude to my 1,000+ crew members, actors and director, Jaume Collet-Serra. The hierarchy of power in DC Universe is changing."
The tweet was posted in response to a video shared on a Black Adam fan account, in which Johnson was shown giving his farewell speech to his colleagues on set.
The Rock described his superhero character as "a rebellious, one of a kind superhero," "He is not a superhero, but rather a champion. Champion of the poor and beaten down. Champion of the people. And he is the most unstoppable force in the DC UNIVERSE."
"If you know the comic book mythology, then you know where his pain comes from," he said. "His rage. His wife and children killed. His people brutally enslaved."
