The first game of God of War came out in 2005 and told the story of the Spartan warrior Kratos who was betrayed by the Greek god Areswho had a Kratos his own family. He then embarks on a tour of vengeance that ultimately leads him to be crowned the new God of War.
In 2018, after a series of video games set in Greek mythology, God of War it restarted. The character was reintroduced as the father of a special boy called Atreus, with the story set in Norse mythology. The new take on the story will reportedly be adapted from Amazon’s streaming platform, Prime Video.
Who could be playing Kratos in the TV adaptation of God of War?
The original voice actor of Kratos he seems to be OK with the prospect of not reprising his role in the live-action video game, based on the amusing observation.
Se Judge will not reprise his character (as usually happens with video game adaptations in Hollywood), the fan-cast of Bautista would leave the character in very good hands, as someone suitable will likely be playing him. The actor began his mainstream media career as a wrestler in the WWE before transitioning into work as an actor.
Since then, Bautista has thrived in acting with the character of Drax in the franchise of Guardians of the Galaxyas well as roles in blockbuster films, such as Blade Runner 2049, Dune e Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery.
The qualities necessary to interpret Kratos require both the physicality necessary to play the main character of the series God of Warand the ability to infuse the tough character with aspects that humanize him. Bautista he has played complex characters before, such as his role as a wise replicant in Blade Runner 2049, demonstrating his expertise in delivering nuanced interpretations that resonate with audiences. Perhaps the actor’s skill set is better suited to take on the personality of Kratos in the reboot games of God of War and, in a positive twist for Bautistait seems that the series is going in this direction.
There aren’t many details available about the live-action series of Amazon regarding the video game, as the project is still in the early stages of development. However, the show’s announcement was accompanied by a tease from Amazon Studios’ head of television, Vernon Sandersaccording to which the show of God of War could follow the story of the reboot of the game, with Sanders who stated: “At the heart of it all is this story of fathers and sons, and of families, set in this gigantic epic landscape“.
In the end, whoever is the interpreter of Kratos in the show he will have the difficult task of not only being faithful to the source material, but also improving on it.
