Dwayne Johnson Death Hoax: 'Hercules-The Thracian Wars' Trailer Shows 'The Rock' with Bulging Biceps, Defuncts the Scam

Dwayne Johnson has not died. The hoax of "Fast And Furious 7" actor's death has been doing rounds for more than a week on the web. The Rock was hit by two death hoaxes within a span of one week. One of the death hoaxes said that Dwayne Johnson died while performing stunts on "Fast And Furious" sets while the other said that he slipped from a cliff in New Zealand.
The first scam read as follows: "R.I.P. DWAYNE JOHNSON (1972 -2014). He died filming a dangerous stunt for FAST & FURIOUS 7." Another said: "Actor Dwayne Johnson died while filming a movie in New Zealand early this morning ... Preliminary reports from New Zealand Police officials indicate that the actor fell more than 60 feet to his death on the Kauri Cliffs while on-set."
The death hoaxes have been put to rest by Johnson's regular Twitter updates and the recent trailer release of "Hercules-The Thracian Wars" movie. The movie is one of the most anticipated offerings starring Johnson and it shows him in an action hero avatar with accentuated biceps and triceps. From the trailer, it seems that the movie is high on dose action. The plot line of the film, which is set up in a war torn town, shows Hercules and his army being ambushed by scary looking men. In the trailer, Johnson is shown putting a lion headgear while fighting the enemy.
"Surrender now, and we shall consider being merciful," the enemy tells him.
Hercules then says, "Look at me. Do I look afraid?"
The movie is being directed by Brett Ratner, and also stars Ian McShane, Rufus Sewell, Joseph Fiennes, Peter Mullan, John Hurt, Rebecca Ferguson, Ingrid Bolsø Berdal, Aksel Hennie, Reece Ritchie and Tobias Santelmann.
The movie will be premiere in theatres by July 25.
