God of War


 

Actor Jason Momoa, who will join the DC film universe as Aquaman in the upcoming Justice League, is used to working in genre media, with previous work on Stargate: Atlantis and Game of Thrones, to name a few. While there are plenty of rough-and-tumble characters from the video game world Momoa would step into with ease, it seems God of War‘s Kratos would be one he’d be excited to tackle.

During a recent interview, a fan asked Momoa if he’d ever consider playing the tragic and troubled anti-hero on screen. The actor offered an enthusiastic “hell yes” to playing Kratos—but he also refers to him as “the guy with the white and red” face, so he’s most likely a casual fan. Granted, playing a well-known character doesn’t require the actor or actress to be a superfan. It’d be hard to believe Momoa was ever a ride-or-die supporter of the original comic book version of Aquaman, what with his need to wear skin tight scale armor while riding a dolphin under a rainbow.

Much like the new, grittier version of Aquaman, Kratos has the rough exterior that Momoa could pull off. It wouldn’t be Momoa’s first role into a video game adaptation, either, as he recently signed on to portray Rico Rodriguez in the Just Cause film.

Still, the concept of Kratos on film is purely theoretical at this point. Early stirrings of a film adaptation began in 2005, but the news has been quiet since Brett Ratner confirmed he was working on the project all the way back in 2009. Fans are better off looking forward to the next entry in the God of War game franchise, due out sometime next year. In fact, the game’s release window may have just been outed by an Amazon email, too.
