First Picture Of Dwayne Johnson As Hercules
Wrestler shares still image of himself from forthcoming swords and sandals epic...
Actor Dwayne Johnson is used to getting oiled up and wearing skimpy costumes from his other job as a WWE wrestler.
So it wasn't too much of a stretch for "The Rock" to play a Greek mythic hero in Hercules: The Thracian Wars.
And he has now shared the first snap of himself in character from the Brett Ratner-directed movie - which is set to hit cinemas in July.
He wrote alongside the picture: "The world's first superhero. #TilDeathOrVictory."
Based on a graphic novel, the movie re-tells the story of Hercules as a mercenary soldier in ancient Greece.
A strong cast also includes Ian McShane, Rufus Sewell, Joseph Fiennes, Peter Mullan, John Hurt and Rebecca Ferguson.
