Total Film has released the final character poster for 300: Rise of an Empire has been released and it features Sullivan Stapleton as Themistokles. I included the previous posters below. They are of Eva Green’s Artemisia, Rodrigo Santoro’s Xerxes, Jack O’Connell’s Calisto, Lena Headey’s Queen Gorgo, and a Persian warrior.
“Based on Frank Miller’s latest graphic novel “Xerxes” and told in the breathtaking visual style of the blockbuster “300,” this new chapter of the epic saga takes the action to a fresh battlefield—on the sea—as Greek general Themistokles (Sullivan Stapleton) attempts to unite all of Greece by leading the charge that will change the course of the war. “300: Rise of an Empire” pits Themistokles against the massive invading Persian forces led by mortal-turned-god Xerxes (Rodrigo Santoro), and Artemesia (Eva Green), vengeful commander of the Persian navy.”
The action adventure stars Sullivan Stapleton, Eva Green, Lena Headey, Hans Matheson, David Wenham, Rodrigo Santoro, Igal Naor, Callan Mulvey, Jack O’Connell, and Andrew Tiernan.
The film is directed by Noam Murro, from a screenplay by Zack Snyder & Kurt Johnstad, based on the graphic novel Xerxes, by Frank Miller.
300: Rise of an Empire marches into theaters on March 7, 2014.
