Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has recently revealed the first image of himself as the legendary hero Hercules, effectively giving fans the first ever look at Bret Ratner’s upcoming swords and sandals epic, Hercules: The Thracian Wars.
The image doesn’t really give one a full unobstructed look at the Greek half-god, as it shows Johnson facing away from the camera, sporting a flowing hairpiece. His numerous tattoos are artfully covered up, no doubt to prevent the more contemporary designs from ruining the authenticity of the character.
Hercules: The Thracian Wars follows Hercules as he has fallen on hard times, working as a mercenary to make ends meet. However, when the King of Thrace asks the hero for help in delivering his kingdom from a brutal warlord, Hercules found it hard to resist, as it is a quest that’s truly worthy of his reputation.
