The stars have been aligning for Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson's latest film, as Rampage has put together an extremely impressive cast heading into production. With cameras finally rolling, the actors have started to share small, tease-worthy looks at the set.
Joe Manganiello - who is also set to join The Rock in the DC Extended Universe - has just revealed the first look at his costume for the new movie. While The Rock's character may be a hero, trying to save many of the world's biggest animals from extinction, Manganiello's role could oppose it. The actor is set to portray the leader of a private military group, and his new attire definitely suits the part.
Manganiello shared a photo on his Instagram account, showing his character's bullet-proof vest. With an intimidating patch front and center - and a holstered pistol just below - it's clear this guy means business.
If you look closely, you can also see that this photo reveals an unknown detail about Manganiello's character - his name. The tag on the hanger says Burke, which clearly isn't part of the actor's actual name.
While the speculation surrounding the character does point to a villain, the film could surprise folks. It's entirely possible that the private military group was brought in by Johnson's character, and that they're on the same side.
However, by the looks of things, it isn't likely.
