FIRST LOOK: here’s Charlie Hunnam as Knights of the Round Table: King Arthur

July 23rd, 2015 by Marc Comments


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

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
