Like many of the production photos posted by Johnson, this one was taken by Hiram Garcia, the movie's producer and the President of Production of Johnson's production company, Seven Bucks Production.
Many fans commented on the photo, loving The Rock's new character's look.
"The legend in black & white," @themusabshaikh wrote.
"Ahoy mate," @themostbasicmom added.
"I'm really excited for this movie," @de.nnis179 replied.
"Are you ever not filming, is your downtime going to be made into a doc?," @wallheem joked.
Johnson truly is one of the busiest people in Hollywood. In addition to Jungle Cruise, the actor will soon be seen in the upcoming Fast & Furious spin-off, Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw. He also just wrapped filming the new Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle sequel. Fighting with My Family also became available for home viewing this month. The biopic focused on WWE wrestler, Paige, and her family, and Johnson produced the film and had a small part playing himself.
In addition to Johnson and Blunt, the upcoming Disney flick is set to star Jesse Plemons, Édgar Ramírez, Paul Giamatti, and Jack Whitehall. The IMDb plot description describes the new movie as being "based on Disneyland's theme park ride where a small riverboat takes a group of travelers through a jungle filled with dangerous animals and reptiles, but with a supernatural element."
Jungle Cruise is expected to hit theaters on July 24, 2020.
