Jonathan Majors shared,

“It was like a sick dream. (Laughs.) I’m sure the stories will come out as we go, but there were moments where I was like, ‘Did Mike hit me, or did Adonis hit me? I’m not sure. And did I hit Mike, or did I hit my director?’ That was probably the most fun, a different type of fun. You’re there with your brother. Michael and I were fast friends, and then we became actual brothers.”
