Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson recently shared some new behind-the-scenes photos for his upcoming film, Black Adam, via Instagram. The Rock recently spent some time doing some VFX performance work for the production, which he describes and shares more details about below:

“Very long workday, but very productive for our VFX production of BLACK ADAM 10 hours of sitting in “the egg’ shooting extremely complicated sequences where I can only move my eyes, head & shoulders focusing on marks no bigger than a quarter – all while performing as #BlackAdam.

“In the mythology, TETH ADAM (his original name before his soul is darkened to BLACK), starts off as a slave in his birthplace of Kahndaq, the Rock continued writing. These slave sequences are super intricate and complex. Requires a real TEAM EFFORT to get the job done. A huge THANK YOU to our director, Jaume Collet Serra, our Black Adam VFX Supervisor, and two-time Oscar winner, Bill Westenhofer, our entire A+ post-production crew, and the brilliant LOLA Visual Effects Team. Thank you all for your time and incredible talents and I can’t wait for the world to finally see THE MAN IN BLACK #vfx#mythologycomestolife#blackadam”

The upcoming film stars Johnson in the titular role, along with Pierce Brosnan as Doctor Fate, Noah Centineo as Atom Smasher, Aldis Hodge as Hawkman, Quintessa Swindell as Cyclone and Sarah Shahi as Adrianna Tomaz. It was directed by Jaume Collet-Serra from a script by Adam Sztykiel and Rory Haines & Sohrab Noshirvani and releases in theaters on July 29, 2022.
