EW has revealed the look of Charlie Hunnam as King Arthur with his sword, which he presumably got from the stone, in Knights of the Round Table: King Arthur.
Director Guy Ritchie said: “I think where the pitfall has often been is trying to make King Arthur bland and nice, and nice and bland. The two qualities make rather compatible bed companions. Unfortunately, they’re not interesting to watch. Luke Skywalker was always the most uninteresting character in Star Wars because he’s the good guy. Good guys are boring.”
Hunnam himself adds: “He’s a little bit rough around the edges, but he’s basically a survivor. He’s a hustler, he’s a street kid. There’s definitely a harder edge to him than people would imagine. It’s sort of classic Guy Ritchie stuff.”
Excitingly, the interview also adds that there will be really fantastic elements to this with giant snakes, massive war elephants, and a “monstrous viking-like creature” called The Nemesis.
The movie, planned as the first of six, is set for July 22, 2016 and Hunnam appears on the cover of the latest issue
