Warner Bros. has released the first poster, along with images, for its upcoming film The Legend of Tarzan. Alexander Skarsgard (True Blood, The East) will be playing the iconic character of Tarzan. Margot Robbie (Suicide Squad, The Wolf of Wall Street) is playing Jane and the go-to villain actor Christoph Waltz (Spectre, Inglourious Basterds) will be playing baddie Captain Leon Rolm.

In The Legend of Tarzan, it has been years since the man once known as Tarzan (Skarsgård) left the jungles of Africa behind for a gentrified life as John Clayton III, Lord Greystoke, with his beloved wife, Jane (Margot Robbie) at his side. Now, he has been invited back to the Congo to serve as a trade emissary of Parliament, unaware that he is a pawn in a deadly convergence of greed and revenge, masterminded by the Belgian, Captain Leon Rom (Christoph Waltz). But those behind the murderous plot have no idea what they are about to unleash.

David Yates (Harry Potter films, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them) is directing the film which is set for release July 1, 2016.
