Dwayne Johnson (Fast & Furious Six) has been tweeting out a lot of behind-the-scenes images and video from the set of Brett Ratner’s Hercules: The Thracian Wars. And I mean a lot. Today is no different as Johnson reveals a frame from his four-hour daily make-up routine, complete with battle scars that suggest he’s been involved in a few skirmishes (perhaps a particularly laborious one against a lion of legend?).
