Dwayne Johnson’s arms apparently aren’t the only powerful ones on set, as his recent Instagram photo shows him flexing and screaming for an intense scene on set, with a giant robot arm moving the camera capturing his performance.
In the caption, Johnson writes that the arm is called a BOLT, one of the fastest of its kind in the world, and that attached to it is a phantom camera, capturing him at an unreal 960 frames per second, 40 times the 24 frames per second that movies are typically filmed at. Although undeniably impressive, movies shown at high frame rates can sometimes be unsettling for viewers, so we’ll have to wait and see how the movie appears in its final form.
“If you know the comic mythology of BLACK ADAM, then you know his rage comes from pain,” Johnson writes. “His pain comes from the loss of his wife and children. He is now the most unstoppable force in the DC Universe or ANY endgame universe.” That’s a bold claim, given the universe-shaping heroes and villains of DC and Marvel.
“Black Adam” releases exclusively in theaters on July 29, 2022.
