This is certainly one of the most exciting news of this end of the year 2022. Even if God of War Ragnarok was not voted GOTY 2022, here is something to comfort the fans of our Kratos: Amazon Prime Video comes in effect of formalizing the God of War series, and all in live-action!
Kratos larger than life!
After months of rumors and suspense, the news has finally come : Amazon Prime Video and Sony are working hand in hand to bring the live-action series based on the game God of War . According to the first elements, this one is written by Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby (Iron Man, Children of Men), and with Rafe Judkins (The Wheel of Time) as showrunner. In addition, we obviously have on the Sony side none other than Cory Barlog, who is also at the controls.
Unfortunately, at the time of this writing, we don't have any names to sink our teeth into for the cast , but it looks like the series takes us straight to the events that transpired in the God of War 2018, with Kratos but also his son, Atreus . This means we won't have Ancient Greece but instead will be dealing with the duo on their quest in Midgard.
We're going to have to wait a few more weeks, or even months, before we can put faces to our characters, but we hope the cast will be up to it!
A Stranger Things star wants to be in the game!
Recently, we learned that a cast member of the hit series Stranger Things is very keen to be cast in the God of War game, and it's the show's lead actor, David Harbour, who plays the role of Sheriff Jim Hopper .
With this declaration, will Cory Barlog let him make an appearance not in the next opus but indeed in the series which is now in preparation? Only the future will tell us ! But that would be a nice nod.
