You gotta love Twitter! It’s one thing when an onlooker is posting photos of top secret filming (like the pictures and videos from ‘The Man of Steel’ , ‘Avengers’ and ‘The Dark Knight Rises’) but when one of the stars tweets a pic? That’s news!

Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson loves to tweet as was evident when he tweeted a picture of him and a machine gun less than 2 weeks ago. Today, he gave his fans another picture, this time in full combat readiness as Roadblock with the tweet “1st day of shooting. 110 degrees. Bring It.”

Looks like this version of GI Joe is heading away from the leather bond uniforms that prevailed in the original film and going for a battle look that audiences can relate to more. Johnson plays Roadblock whose real name is Marvin F. Hinton, known for his fine cooking, his tendency to rhyme all the time, and the use of heavy weaponry for any and all combat situations. Looks like they hit the nail on the head with casting Johnson in this role!

In other news, Walter Goggins has been added to the cast and will be portraying a new character called Warden Nigel James. You might recognize Goggins from his roles in ‘Justified’ and the recent movie ‘Cowboys and Aliens’. Who Warden Nigel James is and how big of an influence his character will have in the storyline is still unknown. No one even knows if he is a good guy or a bad guy. Seeing the work that Goggins has done does tell you that his character will be a great one to watch!

So what do you think of Rock’s look? Let us know below!
