When Dawn “The Rock” Johnson was forced to tear down his electric gate from a wall with his bare hands in order not to delay the movie scene for his debut superhero movie, he put his huge muscles to good use.
In an Instagram post, with a picture of the gate lying on the ground, Hollywood star – A former professional wrestler – explained that a storm caused a power outage, which meant the gate to his house would not open.
He wrote: “Not my best time, a man has to work.”

Not my best hour but♂️, but a guy has to work. We have experienced a power outage due to a severe storm, which has left me unable to open the front gate. I’ve tried to override the hydraulic system to open the gates, which usually works after the power goes out – but this time it won’t. I made some calls to see how fast I can get gate technology to the site, but I don’t have 45 minutes to wait. During this time, I know hundreds of my production crew members are waiting for me to come to work so we can start our day. So I did what I had to do. I pushed the gate completely away from myself, pulling and pulling. It completely ripped from the brick wall, cutting off the steel hydraulics and throwing them over the grass. My security team was able to meet the gate technicians and welders about an hour later – and they explicitly said, “Disbelief and equally frightened.” And I’m ready to be Black Adam
After being told it would take 45 minutes for a technician to arrive, he literally took matters into his own hands, fearing that “hundreds” of crew members working on the DC Comics film “Black Adam” were waiting for him.
“I pushed and pulled and tore the gate completely,” he added.
“It completely rips off the brick walls, cuts the steel hydraulics and throws them over the grass.

“My security team was able to meet the gate technicians and welders about an hour later – and they were probably ‘unreliable and equally scared’ of how I broke it.”
He ended his post by saying that he was then “ready to be Black Adam”.
The movie will be released in the UK on December 24, 2121.
