You’ve seen the trailer — now you can get a look at Will Smith in full-on Hancock garb, thanks to a pair of new stills released by Sony!

The Peter Berg-directed adventure, arriving in theaters July 2, focuses on the exploits of its titular ne’er-do-well superhero. From the official synopsis:

There are heroes… there are superheroes… and then there’s Hancock (Will Smith). With great power comes great responsibility — everyone knows that — everyone, that is, but Hancock. Edgy, conflicted, sarcastic, and misunderstood, Hancock’s well-intentioned heroics might get the job done and save countless lives, but always seem to leave jaw-dropping damage in their wake. The public has finally had enough — as grateful as they are to have their local hero, the good citizens of Los Angeles are wondering what they ever did to deserve this guy. Hancock isn’t the kind of man who cares what other people think — until the day that he saves the life of PR executive Ray Embrey (Jason Bateman), and the sardonic superhero begins to realize that he may have a vulnerable side after all. Facing that will be Hancock’s greatest challenge yet — and a task that may prove impossible as Ray’s wife, Mary (Charlize Theron), insists that he’s a lost cause.

Got all that? Good. Now get a load of Smith in what appears to be his uniform:

What do you think, RTers? Are you getting more excited to see Hancock, or are you starting to think it’ll wind up languishing in the lower reaches of your Netflix queue?
