Superstar Dwayne Johnson is ready to build up his “power” for Black Adam. The Rock is set to star in his first traditional comic book movie with the role of Teth-Adam/Black Adam in 2021 and with shooting starting this summer, the superstar actor has started training in the gym for the role.
Johnson posted some of his workouts to Instagram to announce the start of his training, and he also hyped things up with an animation video of what he might look like in character as the anti-hero. While Black Adam has traditionally been a villain of Shazam (Zachary Levi) in the past, recent comic book adaptations have had the character as more of an “anti-hero,” something Johnson alluded to in his post.
Here’s a look at the character video:

Johnson is obviously no stranger…
