Dwayne Johnson took to Instagram to celebrate the end of production on “Black Adam,” sharing a touching video from his last day on set. He’s seen surrounded by the cast and crew as he gives an emotional speech about the work that’s gone into getting “Black Adam” off the ground over the last few years — especially throughout the pandemic. The star said, “I can’t thank you enough from the bottom of my heart for this experience. This has been once in a lifetime for me. … “I’ve been a lucky, lucky guy to have the career I’ve been blessed with, but that doesn’t happen without teamwork.”
After also saying, “I want to say thank you so much guys, I love you truly,” Johnson revealed that he was going to announce the winners of the production’s “$5 Friday,” where the crew all chipped in with the hopes of winning $3,000. However, the Rock dropped a bombshell: He bumped the prize money up to $10,000 and picked three names from a bucket, with the cash being split between them.
It’s a touching gesture, showing that Johnson isn’t afraid to put his money where his mouth is. Now, if he could also treat the fans to a full first look at his “Black Adam” costume, that would be just as great.
“Black Adam” is slated for a July 29, 2022 release.
