Dwayne Johnson is quite ready for his role as Black Adam, and he intends to be more muscular than the character depicted in the comics.

That is why he is training harder than ever and has recently admitted to Men's Journal that training for the film was the most arduous he's ever done in his life.

He believes that the balance of power is about to change in the DC universe.

The actor also claimed that he was born to play Black Adam and even went as far as saying that he started training for the role "when he came out of the womb."

He then went on to say that the project has been with him for ten years. As soon as the project was confirmed by Seven Bucks production, the rest of the team immediately got to work, including Dwayne Johnson and his coach Dave Rienzi.

The actor wishes to be in the best shape of his career as he plays the role of Black Adam.

These comments are similar to those he made about a year ago, in December 2020. That was the first time he teased about the film while sharing a photo of him working out on Instagram.

He captioned the photo, "Training for BLACK ADAM."

Dwayne also mentioned his strength and conditioning coach, Dave Rienzi, for being there through so many of his successes in film and character. While sharing the message, he also mentioned that he was "277 lbs of mean and nasty."

So far, not much is known about the Black Adam plot. Previously, it was mentioned that Pierce Brosnan would have a role in the film as Doctor Fate.

Other famous names to make an appearance in the film will include Noah Centineo, who will be Atom Smasher, Quintessa Swindell as Cyclone, and Aldis Hodge as Hawkman.

Hiram Garcia, the film's producer, revealed that the team behind the project was hoping to tell the story of Black Adam across several films:

"We've never viewed this as just a one-off movie."

The film is expected to debut on July 29.
