Dwayne Johnson‘s movies seem to do well when he’s part of an ensemble (Fast & Furious movies, G.I. Joe: Retaliation) and less well when it’s all on him (Snitch, Faster). Either way, he’s still a charismatic presence, and we’ll see him in both kinds of films next year with James Wan‘s Fast & Furious 7 and Brett Ratner‘s Hercules. Plot details on Fast 7 are being kept under wraps beyond the gang squaring off against a new villain played by Jason Statham. As for Hercules, the movie is billed as “a revisionist take on the classic myth set in a grounded world where the supernatural does not exist.” Johnson has been tweeting out set photos from Hercules, but now he’s given us our first good look at him in the movie. Also, as a sweetener, he’s tweeted out the first image of Hobbes in Fast 7. Or maybe I have them mixed up and both films are going in wildly unexpected directions.
Hit the jump to check out the image. Fast & Furious 7 opens July 11, 2014. Hercules opens July 25, 2014.
