It's now official


Last October I posted about an upcoming HERCULES project that was in the works but not yet official. The project has been greenlighted and Hercules will be played by Dwayne Johnson. Yes, The Rock.

Well, remember that he did something like this when he played the Scorpion King in the second issue of the Mummy. He also played an earlier version of this character who was a Conan type, where at the end, lacking a arrow for his bow, he pulled out one that had just been shot into his back within handy reach. It must have hurt, though, because he howled loudly as he was doing it. Let's just hope that as Hercules he won't be doing his pec-dancing for which he has become famous.

Steve Reeves will always be HERCULES to me but I do like Dwayne and think he will make a good Hercules if the script is right, etc. but no one will ever replace STEVE!!!

I agree Deborah.

I think Dwayne doesn't look Greek. Oh well...
