God of War Ragnarök actor Christopher Judge wants to play Kratos in the franchise’s live-action TV series.
Kratos is one of the most iconic characters in all of gaming. Even from the PS2, Kratos was a key PlayStation character and was instantly recognizable due to how completely drugged he was, the tattoos and scars on him, and his insane voice that yelled at his enemies.
He was so important that NetherRealm even incorporated him into Mortal Kombat as a playable character in the PlayStation versions of the game. His legacy continued in 2018 with the PS4 release of God of War, a soft reboot that changed the tone of the series but continued the story. The Kratos actor also switched to Christopher Judge, who has been hailed for giving one of the best performances in a video game with both the 2018 entry and God of War Ragnarok.
Earlier this year, it was confirmed that Amazon was developing a live-action TV series for God of War. It’s unclear what games it will be adapted into or who will be in it, but many have started casting Kratos as fans. Marvel actor Dave Bautista threw his name in the hat for Kratos and fans suggested many other names.
However, Kratos actor Christopher Judge thinks he’s the right man for the job. A fan on Twitter noted that none of the fans were as good as Christopher Judge because he is “literally the fucking God of War.” The judge responded by saying “co-sign”. It seems Judge has aspirations to reprise his role as Kratos in live action and continue the character’s legacy.
