Dwyane Johnson has released a new photo of himself as Hercules, giving us our first real look at the character in Hercules: The Thracian Wars. Everything that's been released up until this point has been very teasing. I'll admit that he looks like a badass in the photo, but it doesn't change the fact that Brett Ratner directed the movie. The image came with the following caption:
"Intense 6 months of HERCULES to now Hobbs (Fast & Furious). Shooting starts now."
The movie also stars Ian McShane, Rufus Sewell, Joseph Fiennes, Peter Mullan, John Hurt, Rebecca Ferguson, Ingrid Bolsø Berdal, Aksel Hennie, Reece Ritchie, and Tobias Santelmann. It's set to be released on July 25th, 2014. What do you think of Johnson's look?
Haunted by a sin from his past, Hercules has, in the film, become a mercenary. Along with five faithful companions, he travels ancient Greece selling his services for gold and using his legendary reputation to intimidate enemies. But when the benevolent ruler of Thrace and his daughter seek Hercules' help to defeat a savage and terrifying warlord, Hercules finds that in order for good to triumph and justice to prevail... he must again become the hero he once was... he must embrace his own myth... he must be Hercules .
