Dwayne Johnson shared two new phots from his upcoming action movie Hercules: The Thracian Wars on Twitter. The story is based on the graphic-novel version by Steve Moore and Admira Wijaya via Radical Comics, where Hercules puts together a band of mercenaries and goes off to fight – not part of the original Greek mythos.

Along with five faithful companions, he travels ancient Greece selling his services for gold and using his legendary reputation to intimidate enemies. But when the benevolent ruler of Thrace and his daughter seek Hercules’ help to defeat a savage and terrifying warlord, Hercules finds that in order for good to triumph and justice to prevail… he must again become the hero he once was… he must embrace his own myth… he must be Hercules.
