After seeing these photos from The Legend of Tarzan, you might just need to change your loin cloth!
We're pretty excited for the live-action adaptation of the classic tale, mostly because of the first images featuring a ripped Alexander Skarsgård playing the titular character, alongside Margot Robbie as Jane!

If you're wondering why the jungle man has contemporary pants on, it's because this David Yates directed film is a slightly twisted version of the tale!
According to reports, the film is starting with the King of the Jungle having already left the wild and living in Victorian England with his wife, Jane.
In the Warner Bros. remake, Tarzan will be asked back to the Congo by an emissary, where we can only hope he will strip back down to his loincloth wardrobe! LOLz!
ASkars says this take on the story isn't about "taming the beast" like the original version but rather:
"This is about a man who's holding back and slowly as you peel off the layers, he reverts back to a more animalistic state and lets that side of his personality out."
As for Jane, Yates says he pictures the Suicide Squad star playing a modern take on a character, who is:
"In no way a passive partner to Tarzan. She's a really strong, assertive, beautifully knowledgeable, very sexy modern woman who can more than look after herself. In a way, it's a story of two human beings and how they save each other."
