It sounds like the folks behind Brett Ratner’s upcoming “Hercules” is fine and dandy with calling their movie simply “Hercules,” minus the whole (and potentially confusing, not to mention kinda gratuitous) “The Thracian Wars” subtitle. After all, it’s not like this version of Herc is going to have much competition after that ill-conceived Kellan Lutz version bombed at the theaters earlier this year. Man, was that one a stinker.
Anyways, for those of you who are tired of seeing Dwayne Johnson tweeting pictures of his backside from the set of “Hercules,” head on below for your first two official images of Johnson as Herc. He looks mad. Really, really mad. And huge.
Having enduring his legendary twelve labors, Hercules, the Greek demigod, has his life as a sword-for-hire tested when the King of Thrace and his daughter seek his aid in defeating a tyrannical warlord.
Starring Dwayne Johnson, Joseph Fiennes, John Hurt, Ian McShane, Rufus Sewell, Ingrid Bolsø Berdal, Joe Anderson, and Rebecca Ferguson.
Hercing out this July 25th.
UPDATE: Dwayne Johnson himself has tweeted the poster for “Hercules,” which you can check out below.
