Last March, a report from Deadline anticipated that Amazon Prime Video and PlayStation Productions would join forces in a series of god of war. However, none of the companies involved commented on the matter. Today, finally, the streaming video platform ad video game franchise adaptationperhaps the most popular of PlayStation.
As we already knew, the God of War series will bet on the always controversial format live action. That is, it will have real actors. I say “controversial” because this type of production begins to generate debate from the moment that rumors about the actors that will give life to the protagonists arise. In this case, however, from Prime Video they have not wanted to advance the names. What’s more, we don’t even know if they’ve already signed them.
The best example of controversy we have in The Last of Us, the long-awaited HBO Max series. When it was announced that Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsey would play Joel and Ellie, respectively, some “fans” expressed their discontent that the actors were not related to the playable characters. Fortunately, once we saw the first trailer, doubts began to dissipate. Will the same thing happen with the series? god of war? We’ll see.
At the moment we do not know if they will respect the original story that the video games propose. If so, it will be interesting to know if they will adapt the narrative of the Greek mythologyor if they will bet on the second stage of the franchise in the norse mythology. Either one has a lot to tell.
