Dwayne Johnson featured in new poster for Hercules

We are just a little under two months away from the release of the latest retelling of one of the most well-known hero stories of all time, Hercules.

Back in April, we showed you a new TV Spot that showed the legendary hero facing down some pretty epic monsters.

Now, we have a look at a new poster for the film that features the film’s star, Dwayne Johnson.

Johnson looks pretty stacked in the new poster, of course…when doesn’t he?

He is standing there with his long hair settled to the side, flames at his feet, and looking ready for battle.

Take a look for yourself. Here is a look at the latest poster for the upcoming film Hercules.

This is not the first time that the story of Hercules has been told on the big screen this year. Back in January, Twilight Saga star Kellan Lutz laced up Herc’s rather large boots in The Legend of Hercules.

While they each have their own different spin on the character, it will be interesting to see how the two compare against each other in the war for Box Office supremacy.

Hercules is being directed by Brett Ratner, who is also set to direct the upcoming Beverly Hills Cop sequel coming in 2016.

The screenplay for the film is being penned by relatively new screenwriter Ryan Condal and screenwriter Evan Spiliotopoulos, who has done countless works for Walt Disney like Lion King 1 ½ and Pooh’s Heffalump Movie.

The film stars Dwayne Johnson as Hercules himself. Joining him is Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides actor Ian McShane. The film also stars John Hurt, Joseph FiennesRufus SewellIrina Shayk, and many more.

Hercules is scheduled to be released on July 25, 2014.
