The summer will see Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam enter, or rather stampede, the DC Universe. Given his towering presence onscreen as well as in the real world, it appears odd that he’ll be making his debut in a comic book film.According to the actor, he’s been waiting in the wings for this part since it was offered. He’s now prepared to turn the convention on its head.

“The training we did for this film was the most difficult I’ve ever undertaken in my life,” says Johnson, who wanted to do right by fans of the lesser-known character.“I swear to you that the power structure in the DC universe is about to shift.”

Johnson collaborated with strength and conditioning coach Dave Rienzi to develop his already thorough program further in order to get the most out of his training sessions while juggling an insane workload.Fueled by his personal energy drink ZOA, the workouts were the most punishing of his career.ZOA Energy is the most popular energy drink in America, and it just announced two new flavor additions to its growing line of nutritious beverages: White Peach and Tropical Punch.

In a recent interview with Men’s Journal, Johnson made the revelation that he is starring in another video game movie and then discussed the upcoming Black Adam movie.

When did you begin working out for Black Adam, and what objectives did you set?

I was born to play this role, according to Dwayne Johnson. I feel that I was born to play Black Adam.However, in all honesty, this initiative has been with me for ten years.The process began when we started to stand the material up and really developed it into what it is present day. After the start date was decided by our Seven Bucks production company, the rest of my team, Warner Bros., set to work.In April 2015, I was able to create an enormous training system with my coach Dave Rienzi after signing a contract with Marvel Studios, DC Comics, and Elite Studio. I wanted to be in the best physical condition of my career when I began this.”

What did you learn about yourself throughout this experience? How was it different from what you’ve done in the past?

I’ve been one lucky son of a bitch over the years to prepare for some really big competitions and games. That really started with my college football career at the University of Miami. We were national champions and had the pleasure of competing for the national title on two other occasions. From there it only got more intense, especially when I began my professional wrestling career. Getting the greenlight for Black Adam was a once-in-a-lifetime chance to raise the bar yet again.

Doing that work with Dave, we wanted to bring a whole new philosophy and methodology to the way I push myself in the gym. There’s a lot of fine tuning that goes on in our training together. Even if we’re not together, I’m constantly sending him photos so he knows exactly where we are when it comes to results. If needed, we’ll make adjustments in the moment. He doesn’t only care about the aesthetic, but also about my energy levels and how I’m feeling.

How will Black Adam differ from previous comic book films?

Superheroes follow a code of conduct and a set of values. But with Black Adam, he has the potential to be a hero, an antihero, and a villain. One of the reasons I wanted to be Black Adam was his backstoryHe was enslaved at the beginning of his career.It means a lot more when someone rises up against others after they’ve been unjustly restrained by them.Black Adam rises with a big fucking chip on his shoulder—and an edge. In the conventional DC Universe, if you do something wrong, Superman and Batman will attempt to bring you to justice. If you do something wrong to Black Adam, you’re going to die. It’s that simple. I feel this character will add a distinct new flavor to the superhero genre. We’ll be turning conventional thinking on its ear.
