Not my finest hour 🤦🏽♂️, but a man’s gotta go to work. We experienced a power outage due to severe storms, causing my front gate not to open. I tried to override the hydraulic system to open the gates, which usually works when power goes out – but this time it wouldn’t. Made some calls to see how fast I can get the gate tech on site, but I didn’t have 45min to wait. By this time, I know I have hundreds of production crew members waiting for me to come to work so we can start our day. So I did what I had to do. I pushed, pulled and ripped the gate completely off myself. Tore it out of the brick wall, severed the steel hydraulics and threw it on the grass. My security team was able to meet the gate technician and welders about an hour later — and they were apparently, “in disbelief and equally scared” 🤣 Not my finest hour, but I had to go to work. And I think I’m 💯 ready to be #blackadam 😄💪🏾 #ripgates

Tore it out of the brick wall, severed the metal hydraulics and threw it on the grass,” he continued. “My safety crew was capable of meet the gate technician and welders about an hour later — they usually had been apparently, ‘in disbelief and equally scared’ 🤣 Not my best hour, however I needed to go to work.”

In a second put up, Johnson shared a video of employees fixing the gates — exhibiting that it took three men to carefully lift and carry one of the gates and place it out of the way in which whereas they did repairs on the mechanism.

The 6 Underground actor joked to Jimmy Fallon in May that the film was even additional not on time than it ought to have been as a result of he and Johnson stored cracking up and ruining takes.
“I’m guessing we would’ve completed the film if we didn’t spend 90 p.c of the time d–king round, laughing,” he stated. “I’ve identified Dwayne for like 15 years, so we are inclined to spend time attempting to make one another snicker, which is a very irresponsible factor to be doing with Netflix’s cash. But it makes for a great film on the finish. Once you get take 28 down, you’re set!”
