Everyone’s favorite action star, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, attended Stan Lee Comic-Con in Los Angeles in October 2017 to excite the crowd and dish out more details about his movie, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle.

Johnson spoke about the film, why he decided to make it, and how he hopes to pass the torch to Hollywood up-and-comers. Here’s what he told us.

Stan Lee himself introduced him

Yes, Stan Lee himself shows up to his Comic-Con and usually speaks on a couple of panels. But while he definitely doesn’t take the time to introduce everyone, he was happy to give Johnson the star treatment.

Lee called Johnson “one of the best actors” and “one of the nicest guys” in show business. He also joked that he was responsible for beefing the Rock up to the muscular size he is today.
