Jason Momoa: "I would consider playing Kratos"

Jason Momoa, aka Khal Drogo from Game of Thrones, says he would play Kratos if Sony offered him the role.

The story is too old to be commented.
LarVanian2156d ago

I'm still hoping that Djimon Hounsou will play Kratos should a GOW movie ever be made.

Abash2156d ago

I actually thought of this guy playing Kratos in a God of War movie when I would see the Conan movie commercials

Dark112156d ago (Edited 2156d ago )

nah , i want bill goldberg to be kratos


F7U122156d ago

The dude does kind of look like him. Also he was pretty badass in Game of Thrones.

F7U122156d ago (Edited 2156d ago )

Since when are Greeks considered European white?

M4I0N32156d ago

forget making God of War into movies, just keep the games coming

morganfell2156d ago

"Since when are Greeks considered European white?"

Have you seen a picture of Kratos?

r2kcipher2156d ago

"Since when are Greeks considered European white?"

not since white people traded them for albino africans in the racial draft of 96'.

MmaFan-Qc2156d ago

if Jason Momoa want to play Kratos, he will have to add at least 75lbs of pure muscles and be way more ripped than he already is.

NewMonday2156d ago

Mark Strong + muscle suit used in "300"

GoldenAge2156d ago (Edited 2156d ago )


Dude thanks for reminding me of that racial draft skit from Dave Chappelle.

Virus2012155d ago (Edited 2155d ago )

Here is a picture from a cutscene where it shows Kratos without the white ashes.


Also don't forget his brother Deimos is also a skin that can be used in God of War 3

detroit2cali2155d ago

U haven't seen him in game of thrones have you?

dorron2155d ago

Yeah, and let's have Robert Pattinson play Martin Luther King or Jim Carrey play Malcolm X in another movie.

Kratos is greek and greeks weren't black. They just weren't as white as scandinavian people, but definitely not black.

Dude4202155d ago

I honestly was thinking it would be a black man playing Kratos, but that might have been because the voice actor in the games is black.

Djimon is great but Kratos cant be black!
Hes a Spartan, a greek…
just doesnt work

Ashunderfire862156d ago (Edited 2156d ago )

Greeks and some Europeans aren't as white as they say they are. They are a mixer of black and white. When the Moors came to Europe they spread their seeds to the white women, changing the face of Europe. They will never tell you this in the western history books. Moors played a huge role in Europe, and yes the Moors were black people that also brought science and etc to Europe. Kratos has a black voice just to let you know. I think that Peter Mensah from Spartaucus should play Kratos.

Kalowest2156d ago

Learn your history, before you make a stupid comment.

h311rais3r2156d ago


But kratos is clearly white......

Machioto2156d ago (Edited 2156d ago )

@ziel In the make of god of war,they played around with an African design,I think this guy would be better if they made a mark of kri movie.


Baka-akaB2156d ago (Edited 2156d ago )

"They will never tell you this in the western history books."

Except they do or at least did in quite a few .

Machioto2156d ago (Edited 2156d ago )

Here's a better video,he talks about 42 seconds in.

MrWonderful2156d ago

Why not? Elizabeth Taylor was white and played cleopatra who was Egyptian/black

sikbeta2156d ago (Edited 2156d ago )

Jaffe used Hounsou as reference for the first GOW, look at the non CGI videos in the game, after that Cory Barlog made it more caucasian for GOWII and it's the same for GOWIII

Azmatik2156d ago (Edited 2156d ago )

lol are half u guys mental ummmm western history books do tell quite a bit and greeks arnt black! lmao this guy is just clearly stating Kratos is more white than a blank piece of paper. and u guys flip like its some kinda racist comment. and Moors are u kiding me u think just cause a couple hundred or thousand have sex with some white women it changes the face of europe and its a big secret lol wat kinda history u reading? im assuming some kinda conspiracy crap that emphisises everything. so i guess the bible is completely true too? gullable idiots i tells ya wow

N4realGMRZ2156d ago

LOL the greek where olived skin very similar to you watch to many movies.....dont worry hitler what as white as could be.

Azmatik2156d ago Show
xVeZx2156d ago

kratos is only white because hes covered in the ashes of his family or something along those lines....a couple of times you see him without the ashes on him and hes really dark...i wouldnt say black just a really dark tan...

Grap2156d ago

@Ashunderfire86 you do realize that not all moors were barber.. there is Arab also which they considered a white ppl back in the day.

RememberThe3572156d ago (Edited 2156d ago )

@Ash: Hey, someone who doesn't know they're history! Ancient Greece had fallen by the time the Moors had a presence in Europe. You may be thinking of the Romans which in it's early history the Moors had strong ties to Rome.

Greeks have darker skin tone due to their close proximity to the equator and the middle east which traditionally has people with a darker skin tone. Kratos was what we'd call "white" as he wouldn't have had any African (central-south) in his blood line - no more then any other europium at the time. He wouldn't have been Scandinavia white but he surely wouldn't have been black or even mixed.

cstyle2156d ago

Greeks weren't exactly white either. Some were dark skinned.

Imikida2156d ago

Isn't his voice actor black though? lol

Chitown712912155d ago

He might not have the voice, but The Rock definitely has the physique. Did you see him in Fast Five? Dude is a beast

Awesome_Gamer2155d ago

I dont want them to make a GOW movie.. just keep the games coming

MaxXAttaxX2154d ago

That was before they settled with the Greek mythology theme.

Cleopatra was a Macedonian.

I don't think Djimon Hounsou his skin is too dark. Not only would the white makeup not work properly but also his voice would have to be dubbed over to suit.

Laxman2156d ago

The whitest guy ever, being played by the blackest guy ever?

LarVanian2156d ago

You do realise that Kratos' white skin is made out of the ashes of his dead wife and daughter, do you not? He was quite dark before the oracle covered him in ashes (albeit not as dark as Hounsou).

Taz Yamauchi2156d ago

This guy shitted on Conan

FriedGoat2156d ago

It's wasn't his fault, the film was just poor. He was amazing as Karl Drogo in game of thrones and would make the ideal kratos.

sarshelyam2156d ago

While you just shit on grammar!

LarVanian2156d ago (Edited 2156d ago )

Maybe I should clarify as to why I want to see Hounsou play Kratos. The most important reason is because he is a very good actor who is able to convey a number of emotions such as sadness and anger (the two emotions which affect Kratos the most), if you don't believe me then watch Blood Diamond and In America. Blood Diamond, in particular, sees Hounsou play a fisherman who tries to save his kidnapped son and it showed how easily he could play a distressed father. One part of Blood Diamond that was very reminiscent of Kratos is the part towards the end where Hounsou's character, Soloman snaps and begins to scream barbarically at Captain Poison before beating him to death with a shovel.
Hounsou also has a very strong gruff accent. If he were able to modify it significantly he could probably make it sound similar to Kratos. Remember, Heath Ledger who played Joker in TDK, spent weeks trying to transform his Australian accent into the one he used for Joker. If Ledger was able to do that then I'm sure Hounsou could also do it for Kratos.

And for the people feeling unsure because Hounsou is black, he would spent most of the film in white makeup anyway. And Kratos' facial features, funny enough, look quite African, particularly his lips.

I would much rather see a good oscar nominated actor such as Djimon Hounsou play Kratos than someone like Bill Goldberg or Vin Diesel. I honestly would not be able to take the film seriously if either of those two played a tormented Spartan who was forced to kill his own family.

DA_SHREDDER2156d ago

This man is not worthy enough to be Kratos. He didn't even make a good Conan.

Baka-akaB2156d ago

the problem was with the quality of the movie itself , not with him ... but i can't see him as Kratos anyway

RememberThe3572156d ago

I don't know I like him. He doesn't the brooding rage pretty well. I never saw Conan but he pulls it off well in Game of Thrones.

Eternalb2156d ago

He's better in Stargate Atlantis.

Finalfantasykid2155d ago (Edited 2155d ago )

One of the best episodes!

I think Jason would make a pretty good Kratos though, just throw on some white/red paint and shave his head and he would make a pretty great Kratos.

BitbyDeath2156d ago

He's a great actor so i could see it working.
This movie would need a serious budget if it were to ever be made though.

sarshelyam2156d ago

I don't know how serious it would need to be. Let's compare Wrath of the Titans. Arguably, it's a silly action flick, and we'd want a bit more story...but all in all we're looking around the $150M. I think they could work with this considering Conan was a paltry $90M, which likely constituted a good portion of Mamoa's salary.
