Dwayne Johnson closes out the Hercules: The Thracian Wars shoot with two final set pics

10.21.2013

Dwayne Johnson has kept the Twitter machine alive throughout his shoot for director Brett Ratner's HERCULES: THE THRACIAN WARS and this past week principal photography wrapped on the comic book adaptation. To top off the finale, Johnson tweeted two final pics, each of them a bit more revealing than the little teases he's given thus far, including a profile shot of the actor in his Hercules "Lionhead" garb, while standing inside a similarly-themed chariot. The other pic features a back shot of the star wielding a club and facing down some opponents at the bottom of a staircase, which harkens back to the ending of CONAN THE BARBARIAN. Some cool shots to finish off the shoot.

Take a look:

We recently got a look at director Renny Harlin's competing project with the trailer to his HERCULES: THE LEGEND BEGINS, which was met with less than enthusiastic responses from many of you and I'm thinking that the simple presence of Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson as the titular character will be more than enough to sway folks in favor of this version. Brett Ratner doesn't fare as well in the rep department, but in this case I think Johnson has enough clout to do the heavy lifting. 

HERCULES: THE THRACIAN WARS hits theaters on July 25, 2014.

Last shot looks like the end of Conan

just saying. Regardless, i like the Rock and think he'll be kick ass as Hercules, lets wait for the trailer to see if the rest of the movie can match up.

Totally true. I would have no interest with his if The Great One wasn't in it.

So.....

Was there ever an actual reason for them not showing his face in all these pics over the shoot? I mean is there anyone who doesn't already know what the Rock looks like?

Based on the profile pic, I think maybe they have the Rock with a full beard and so they dont want to spoil a look we've never really seen the rock with before

The set looks authentic enough to the actual mythical age. No faith in Retner though lets see. Rock does have the tendency to look like ,well the ROck in every film, I hope this time he really does get into the character and portrays something new and original.
I do prefer the Disney Hercules take and always wanted that to become a film but with a little more mythical accuracy and rate R of course. The Idea of a thin looking kid to have that much strength was appealing to me. People these days

People these days tend to make Hercules either into a Hulking beast or sometimes like somebody who has just come home from some underwear modelling shoot out. Why cant Hercules be this normal looking guy with power to lift mountains.
