While there’s no official news of a God of War movie being made yet, there is certainly a good possibility it could happen. Not only would a God of War movie be an awesome decision but everyone already knows some great actors to play Kratos. Laughably, Vin Diesel has been suggested to play Kratos and more seriously, Djimon Hounsou. But one actor stands out as a very obvious choice. None other than Aquaman and Game of Thrones actor Jason Momoa. Back in 2012, Momoa even confirmed in an on-stage interview he would love to play the role of Kratos!
This comes as no surprise as sweet action and fantasy roles are Jason Momoa’s specialty. After picking up one of the main roles in popular sci-fi show Stargate Atlantis, Hawaiian born Momoa performed New Zealand’s traditional Haka in his audition to play Khal Drogo in Game of Thrones. Now moving into filmmaking, Momoa is also still acting in latest films Aquaman and Just Cause.
In the interview at a Comic Con back in 2012, a member of the crowd asked Momoa if he had heard of the PlayStation game God of War and Kratos. Momoa responded
Do I know God of War? Yeah, the guy with the white paint [motions to face].. I saw pictures of that guy, I would love to play him, yeah.
Prodding a little further for some back up to show Sony, another audience member asked, “If Sony ever contacted you would you consider playing him?” to which Momoa responded
It’s clear from the audience’s cheers and excitement that Jason Momoa is a great choice of actor to play Kratos. Further, with other movies out like Assassin’s Creed fans are ready to see a God of War movie! In the past, there were attempts to get a God of War movie going. However, sadly both the 2005 and 2009 attempts fell through during scripting. Sony itself is also working on an Uncharted film so perhaps if that film and God of War 4 succeed a God of War movie is next. Check out the comparison pictures below and let us if you think Jason Momoa would make the best Kratos!
