‘Black Panther’ Inspired The Rock To Work Out Even Harder, But Not For The Reasons You’d Guess
The success of Black Panther has been nothing short of remarkable. While most everyone knew that Marvel was going to have a hit movie on their hands, no one saw the kinds of record-breaking box office numbers that the film has been making. The film is on its way to becoming the most successful movie of the Marvel Cinematic Universe ever.
Another movie that came out back in late December also blew expectations completely out of the water and that was Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle starring one Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. That movie is also closing in on $1 billion worldwide and is STILL one of the top ten box office movies almost TWO MONTHS after its release.
Now with Black Panther rolling along, and inspiring many people along the way, The Rock too used the move for a little motivation. But it had nothing to do with T’Challa’s wisdom or Killmonger’s laser focus. The Rock was inspired by Black Panther because as he wrote on an Instagram post, “Gettin’ my ass kicked is always good motivation.”
