Jason Momoa, aka Khal Drogo from Game of Thrones, says he would play Kratos if Sony offered him the role.
I'm still hoping that Djimon Hounsou will play Kratos should a GOW movie ever be made.
I actually thought of this guy playing Kratos in a God of War movie when I would see the Conan movie commercials
nah , i want bill goldberg to be kratos http://static.thegamershub....
The dude does kind of look like him. Also he was pretty badass in Game of Thrones.
Since when are Greeks considered European white?
forget making God of War into movies, just keep the games coming
"Since when are Greeks considered European white?" Have you seen a picture of Kratos?
"Since when are Greeks considered European white?" not since white people traded them for albino africans in the racial draft of 96'.
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.
Mark Strong + muscle suit used in "300"
@r2k Dude thanks for reminding me of that racial draft skit from Dave Chappelle. http://www.kewego.com/video...
Here is a picture from a cutscene where it shows Kratos without the white ashes. http://images2.wikia.nocook... Also don't forget his brother Deimos is also a skin that can be used in God of War 3 http://ps3media.ign.com/ps3...
@MmaFan-Qc U haven't seen him in game of thrones have you?
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.
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
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. http://farm7.static.flickr....
@zielocz3k Learn your history, before you make a stupid comment.
@ash But kratos is clearly white......
@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.
"They will never tell you this in the western history books." Except they do or at least did in quite a few .
Here's a better video,he talks about 42 seconds in.
Why not? Elizabeth Taylor was white and played cleopatra who was Egyptian/black
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
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
LOL the greek where olived skin very similar to arabs.....lol you watch to many movies.....dont worry hitler what as white as could be.
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...
@Ashunderfire86 you do realize that not all moors were barber.. there is Arab also which they considered a white ppl back in the day.
@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.
Greeks weren't exactly white either. Some were dark skinned.
Isn't his voice actor black though? lol
He might not have the voice, but The Rock definitely has the physique. Did you see him in Fast Five? Dude is a beast
I dont want them to make a GOW movie.. just keep the games coming
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.
The whitest guy ever, being played by the blackest guy ever?
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).
This guy shitted on Conan
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.
While you just shit on grammar!
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.
This man is not worthy enough to be Kratos. He didn't even make a good Conan.
the problem was with the quality of the movie itself , not with him ... but i can't see him as Kratos anyway
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.
He's better in Stargate Atlantis.
http://www.youtube.com/watc... 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.
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.
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.
If a Halo movie couldn't be made i dont see how this one could
Why? You know Uncharted is being made into a movie right?
Because Halo has a much bigger fanbase.Also i cant find any news on this Uncharted movie since last year when the screenwriter dropped out
Popularity doesn't really matter, Dragonball Z has more popularity than both combined and look how that turned out... :-(
Anything to boost negativity huh? They may make a Halo movie in the future. A God of War movie could be made.
Course you would, what else are you doing? Conan 2? No?
The problem is you're never gonna find a guy who looks and sounds like Kratos at the same time.
@ h311rais3r. Kratos is not white as you put it. Before he got the ashes Kratos clearly had darker skin. He isn't black but he clearly isn't 'white' either @ cynosure. What does that have to do with anything? The God of War movie could get green lighted because they have available cast, director and resources not because it was a bad idea.What does one movie have to do with the other? Besides, Sony is the one with the movie studios. They could more likely turn GOW into a movie then Microsoft could turn Halo into one.
Its a business and at the end of the day they need people to see the movie.Its all about what sells and God of War would not be a seller.
Even if they made that Halo movie it probably wouldn't have done well and it has a much bigger fanbase than GOW
The fact of the matter is there's never been a successful videogame movie in history.Its a huge gamble for a studio

You still didn't see my point about Sony having movies studios. They have the resources to make a GOW movie if they want. Microsoft has to search for someone who will take a risk to make a Halo movie.Sony only has to take the risk of making it. Microsoft has to go to someone to convince them a Halo movie is not a risk to them and themselves which is much harder to do. That is the difference. Besides a several of those things you mentioned probably don't have a fanbase as large as GOW or as many people that GOW has does or as good a plot as GOW did and still got made into movies. So obviously that is not a factor.
Cynosure, I didn't know you can see into the future. How do you know a GOW movie wouldn't be successful. I was right. You *do* have an agenda.
Thats a big list but I dont agree with the Silient Hill 29% review. I thought it was the best movie based on a videogame IMO
He would be an "okay" canidate. But a Movie based on this beloved series just won't work because I cannot name a trustworthy director.
Tarsem Singh, maybe? Immortals wasn't terrible, & The Fall was really good.
Singh is great with a camera, but he falls short when it comes to actual storytelling. He would need to be partnered with a better writer who had the authority to keep him in line (and that last part is never gonna happen).
This guy isn't just "white", anyway. He's half Hawaiian, & part Irish, German, & Native American. He looks enough like Kratos to play the part, in my opinion. I think Peter Mensa is a better actor, but a guy like that isn't going to be cast as the lead in a potential blockbuster.
He did an awesome job as Drogo, not many people scare me just by looking.. but he sure came close to.
Danny Devito as kratos Jim Carrey as Commander Shepherd Arnold as Joker Eddie Murphy as Sgt. Heller, lmao im soo gonna laugh through that
The rock should play him.
I agree, Dwayne Johnson is huge, shredded and has a great voice. This guy is way too skinny and puny and has a very dislikeable face.
