Some 15 years (!) after he was first linked to the role, Dwayne Johnson has taken to Instagram to share a behind-the-scenes video from New Line Cinema and DC Films’ Black Adam as he announces that filming has wrapped on the upcoming comic book adaptation.
As you’ll see below, Johnson – dressed in Black Adam costume, albeit obscured by black poncho – takes a moment to express his gratitude to the cast and crew from the set of the film, which looks to be making use of ILM’s StageCraft technology pioneered on the Disney+ Star Wars series The Mandalorian.
“Honored and proud to say that’s an official wrap on Black Adam,” states Johnson in his post. “I knew many years ago, the opportunity for me to make Black Adam would be a once in a career event. It has been my true honor to go shoulder to shoulder with over 1,000 brilliant and hungry crew of filmmakers and storytellers to bring the antihero known as Black Adam to life. This has been one for the ages and easily the hardest labor and toughest grind mentally and physically of my entire career. Worth. Every. Second.”
