In a new video, Ryan Reynolds reveals the method of punching Dwayne Johnson and getting away with it. Reynolds and Johnson are currently acting opposite co-star Gal Gadot in the Netflix original thriller Red Notice. The action-comedy, directed by Rawson Marshall Thurber, had the largest launch of any Netflix film to date, and it remained the service’s most-streamed picture throughout the Thanksgiving holiday. Reynolds and Johnson previously starred in Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw. Both stars’ solo efforts in 2021 have had a great turnout, with Johnson’s Jungle Cruise and Reynolds’ Free Guy both doing extraordinarily well at the box office. Red Notice was shot at the height of the epidemic and has since been a huge hit for Netflix, with discussions of a sequel, Red Notice 2, presumably starring Reynolds, Johnson, and Gadot, are in the works.
Reynolds is asked in a new Tik Tok video if he ever punched Johnson while filming Red Notice:
Reynolds is asked in a new Tik Tok video if he ever punched Johnson while filming Red Notice, and he answers no. The actor continues, “Never, ever. That is something I would never undertake since it would mean the end of my life as I know it. ” Reynolds did, however, mention that the key to getting the upper hand on Johnson was just having “a great departure plan.” Reynolds appears to criticize Johnson’s lack of speed in the video, claiming that The Rock is unlikely to catch anyone who hits him if they “walk very quickly.” Reynolds is now on break from acting, but has a number of projects scheduled for release in 2022, including The Adam Project, starring Mark Ruffalo, Zoe Saldana, and Jennifer Garner, and Spirited, starring Will Ferrell. Johnson has two DC projects coming out next year, featuring DC’s League of Super-Pets, in which he voices the lead dog, Krypto, and Black Adam, the first live-action version of the legendary anti-hero. Johnson is also set to film “Red One,” an Amazon original picture, with Jumanji director Jake Kasdan.
Reynolds probably punched Johnson a couple times during filming:
Red Notice: With numerous intricate and dangerous-looking fights throughout, it’s probable Reynolds hit Johnson a few times during production, but the two stars may have avoided the conflict entirely. Even if Reynolds did strike a blow on Johnson, it’s probable that both would remain professional in the aftermath of the event. That said, it would be entertaining to witness Reynolds administer an unintentional strike to the face and Johnson’s response, who, while renowned as a kind and gentle giant, could surely take on Reynolds if he wanted to. It would be interesting to see whether Reynolds would run or merely “walk incredibly quickly” after that.
