Despite Hogan’s array of controversial scandals, the biopic is said to focus on Hogan’s rise in pro-wrestling. According to THR, the film won’t attempt to encompass his entire life either, and instead take on the main points leading up to the story of the Hulkster and Hulkamania.

If you want specifics, PopCrave says the biopic will start with Hogan’s start on the Florida wrestling circuit and take fans all the way through his his peak in the WWF (now WWE).

While the story in and of itself is destined to be entertaining, many fans are reacting to Hemsworth’s casting of the wrestling star.
