He. Is. Hercules!
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson steps into the legendary role for Brett Ratner’s upcoming “Hercules,” a brand-new take on the mythical legend inspired by Radical Comics’ “Hercules” comic books. In the new film, Johnson stars as Hercules in the wake of completing his fabled twelve labors. The legend precedes the man, but can the man measure up to the legend?
That’s the question facing Hercules when tragedy strikes in the form of dark gods who kill his family. But even as he’s reeling from that loss, Herc might be the only man alive who can stop these disturbed descendants of Hades from wiping out civilization — because these creatures “cannot be killed by any ordinary mortal,” and that’s Hercules to the letter.
Watch the full trailer below:
“Hercules,” starring Dwayne Johnson, John Hurt, Ian McShane and more, hits theaters on July 25.
