Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson offered up a first look at him portraying Greek demigod Hercules. He tweeted on March 23, 2014: "EXCLUSIVE first look. #HERCULES The world's first superhero. #TilDeathOrVictory."
Set to hit theaters July 25, 2014, the action-adventure movie begins after Hercules has endured his legendary 12 labors, and 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.
The Rock isn't the only Hercules of the year. Twilight heartthrob Kellan Lutz stars in The Legend of Hercules, which was released in Jan. 2014.
