"I asked the prop department to lock me in with real steel chains that I couldn't break, so the performance would be real," Johnson posted along with a video on Instagram. "When HERCULES finally accepts his fate of being the son of Zeus, it's THE epic moment of the mythology -- and our movie."

He added, "We shot this scene 8 times -- I blacked out every time. Down to my knees. Well worth the fun pain.. this moment is iconic. Im excited for you to see it... #HercDontLikeBlackingOut #HappilyDoItAgain #HERCULESMovie"
