Following the release of the first official images from the movie last night, the poster for The Legend of Tarzan has been revealed. As you can see, it features a bruised and bloodied Alexander Skarsgard ready to leap into action. By his side is a massive ape, giving us our first look at the CGI creatures who will also be featured in the film.
The Legend of Tarzan is set to take a very different approach to the character. While his early years will be explored in flashbacks, this story kicks off with Tarzan now better known as John Clayton III, a.k.a. Lord Greystoke. It’s been over a decade since he left his home in the Congo, and as you can tell from that new name, Tarzan has become fully entrenched as a British gentleman in 1880s Victorian London, with his beloved wife Jane (Margot Robbie) now by his side. However, the titular is eventually forced to return to the Congo when Jane and some of his other friends are put in serious danger.
The Legend of Tarzan also stars Djimon Hounsou as Chief Mbonga, Samuel L. Jackson as George Washington Williams and Christoph Waltz as the villainous Captain Leon Rom. It’s set to be released worldwide next July.
