Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has treated fans to a first look photo of himself as iconic Greek hero Hercules from the film of the same name. Ahead of the movie’s theatrical trailer release, the 41 year old actor took to twitter to post this sneak peek of his fantastic costume and very impressive beard. Or at least, I thought it was impressive until I read it was made from yak hair.

Johnson plays the son of Zeus in the action film, and said recently he feels it is the role he was born to play. The hair, makeup and beard transformation reportedly took hours every day, and the former wrestling star looks every inch the blockbuster action hero in the picture as he brandishes a weapon and roars loudly.

Hercules is set to be released on July 25th, and is directed by Brett Ratner, and keep your eyes peeled for the first official trailer which is to premiere later today!
